As the owner of Sweets by Jocelyn, a baking business she started at 6 years old; author of “The Era of Mixed Feelings,” a collection of curated stories about adolescent experiences and struggles; founder of the online magazine “Majesty Mag”; and host of “The I Am Loved” podcast, which discusses love and self-love, Chambers has explored many creative endeavors, primarily composing music for narrative long-form films and television ads. She has composed demos for top brands including Nike and Peloton, which aired during the Olympics, endeavoring to capture the emotions hidden or released within the story of any given ad.

Chambers has always been a creative entrepreneur, learning how to play piano while running Sweets by Jocelyn at age 7.

She began studying composition at the Armstrong Community Music School, winning the Texas Young Composer’s competition twice in 2011 and 2013. She attended the American Festival of the Arts, where she wrote the string quartet “Enigma for the Night” in collaboration with the Houston Ballet. Chambers went on to study at The University of Texas at Austin, receiving a Bachelor of Music in Music Theory and was honored by the College of Fine Arts for her advocacy and activism. She moved to California, pursuing a graduate certificate in Film Scoring from the University of California at Los Angeles. While studying, she began working as a post-production assistant on Netflix’s “Grand Army” and “Designated Survivor”, eventually scoring music for both projects. She also scored “Mama Gloria”, a feature documentary highlighting the life of black trans elder Gloria Allen and “In Favor of Fetus,” a short documentary detailing the experiences of women affected by Wisconsin’s Cocaine Mom law. Last summer, during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, she revived Sweets by Jocelyn, which she had previously put on hold to focus on composing
