Joy Ike

Born to Nigerian immigrants, independent artist Joy Ike's music has drawn comparisons to Corinne Bailey Rae, Norah Jones, and Fiona Apple, but her percussive piano-playing and soaring vocals give homage to her African upbringing. Ike has opened for Cody Chestnutt, Denison Whitmer, and Allen Toussaint, among others. NPR's All Things Considered says of her music, "The depth of subjects she tackles in her poetic lyrics are perfectly complemented by a unique blend of neo-soul, with just the right dash of pop ... a truly compelling act to watch in person, with the ability to create an intimate setting in locations big and small."
