With a guitar in hand, baseball cap over her eyes, and hooded sweatshirt loose, a woman sings with all of the poetry, pain, passion, and power her soul can muster. She is a new kind of American troubadour. She is Joy Oladokun. The Delaware-born, Arizona-raised, and Nashville-based Nigerian-American singer, songwriter, and producer projects unfiltered spirit over stark piano and delicate guitar. Her music and story galvanized a growing fan base as she completed a successful Kickstarter campaign to release her independent debut, Carry. Her song “No Turning Back” soundtracked a viral baby announcement by Ciara and Russell Wilson, opening up the floodgates. She landed a string of high-profile syncs, including NBC’s This Is Us, ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, and Showtime’s The L Word: Generation Q. On the heels of in defense of my own happiness (the beginnings), she garnered unanimous critical praise. Billboard touted the album as one of the “Top 10 Best LGBTQ Albums of 2020, while NPR included “i see america" among the “100 Best Songs of 2020. Predicted as on the verge of a massive breakthrough, she emerged on various tastemaker lists, including Spotify’s RADAR Artists to Watch 2021, YouTube “Black Voices Class of 2021, NPR’s 2021 “Artists To Watch, and Amazon Music’s “Artist To Watch 2021.Not to mention, Vogue crowned her #1 “LBTQ+ Musician To Listen To.She kicked off the new year by making her television debut on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with a stunning and stirring performance of “breathe again.”

After attracting acclaim from Vogue, NPR, and American Songwriter, her words arrive at a time right when we need them the most.

    Joy Oladokun

    Pop

    Joy Oladokun, is a singer/song-writer from a "small farming town in Arizona" who combines the sounds of roots rock, with folk songrwriting and a voice that oozes with soul and honesty. Her debut album, "Carry", ranges from a stripped confessional ballad about being brave enough to leave a lover, to an electrifying rock number that will take you back to 1975. Her eclectic style doesn't take away from her mature and authentic lyricism, however. When Joy writes and sings, you hear the voice of someone who has lived the song and is willing to re-live it again and again everytime she performs it.
