The Soul/Folk of Joy Ike

Written by Joe Ulrich, Arts & Culture Desk and WITF Host | Aug 2, 2011 2:27 PM

Pittsburgh musician Joy Ike has been traveling to DC, Baltimore, New York and now Harrisburg, brandishing her personal blend of soul, folk and pop music. She started playing piano as a kid but abandoned it only to return to music and writing after college. "The more I played and the more I wrote songs," she says, "the more I played out, and the more I played out more people would ask me for cds and albums to take home with them, and one day I quit my job and haven't look back since." Always moving forward, she'll be arriving in Harrisburg Thursday, August 4th at 8pm for a performance at HMAC's Stage on Herr. Listen to the full interview with Joy Ike below.
