New Tunes at 9 Roundup: Joy Ike
RADIO FRIEND PHIL – Greetings! It’s time for this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup. (New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.) We like Ike! We like Ike! Joy Ike is a singer/songwriter we like! In fact, Joy Ike stopped by last week for a Live from the Junction Center event. Joy sang and played guitar, and she was joined on stage by Peace, her sister and percussionist.
Joy Ike’s latest project is called “All or Nothing.” It includes 10 songs full of superb piano playing, Joy’s spectacular, mature voice, and what she likes to call, “soul-folk.” Incidentally, Joy was born to Nigerian immigrants and, as she recalls, “some of my earliest memories involve sitting in the living room with my family and singing Nigerian choruses.”
At http://www.joyike.com/, you’ll find her facebook page, you-tube, and a link to buy “All or Nothing” on iTunes and Amazon. If you go to wjtl.com, click on the videos tab: you’ll find a live performance of the first-single, “Everything You Have.”
