Joy Ike, whose music tinkers with pop, soul, folk, world fusion, was born to Nigerian immigrants. The singer/songwriter’s music, voice, and writing have drawn comparisons to female musicians Nina Simone, Laura Nyro, and Regina Spektor, but her percussive piano-playing and soaring vocals give homage to her African upbringing. This Philadelphia-based artist possesses a powerful instrument of a voice, which she wields with humble virtuosity. Join us for an evening that will leave you stoked with hope. Ike shares her latest release, Bigger Than Your Box, a joyously defiant work, that dares us to believe in ourselves, to knock down the walls of fear and doubt we build around ourselves. “This is an open-armed invitation to dive headfirst into the unseen”, says Ike. We’re here for it, and you should be, too.
