ABOUT

Taiwanese-American violinist Jocelyn Hsu began playing violin when she was nine years old. A summa cum laude graduate from Florida State University, Jocelyn earned her Bachelor of Music degree in violin performance where she studied with Dr. Benjamin Sung. Back home in Orlando, Jocelyn performs regularly at Universal Studios, House of Blues at Disney Springs, and Ole Red Orlando. She is a studio violinist at Solar Studios for Grammy-nominated producer Michael Franklin. 

In 2019, Jocelyn toured with Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame inductee Jon Anderson of YES for his long-awaited solo album, 1000 hands. Jocelyn has performed all over the United States in historic spaces such as the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, and at the 2019 KAABOO Festival at the AT&T Stadium.

In 2020, Jocelyn joined the stage with Anberlin and opened for Mandy Harvey, who was a Golden Buzzer finalist on the 12th season of America's Got Talent. She was featured in the winning entry of 90.7 WMFE NPR's 2020 Tiny Desk Contest in Orlando with Matt Shenk Band's "Lay Down Your Weapons."


This past year, Jocelyn headlined at the 2021 Osceola County Fair and joined Disturbed for the Welcome to Rockville Festival at Daytona International Speedway. She lent her talents for Robby Steinhardt's posthumous solo album Not in Kansas Anymore, which was released in late October and was recently nominated for Best Album, Best Song, and Best Album Cover on the Prog Report Awards. She also collaborated with Utah-based composer John Paul Hayward, recording remote orchestral tracks for his latest album Generations: A Symphonic Tale, which pays homage to video game soundtracks from Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Legend of Zelda, and more. 


Upcoming projects include recording on Jon Anderson's 1000 Hands: Part 2 and Benjamin Neil's upcoming album, Live Forever.
