It brings me Joy…

18 11 2008

So, I can honestly say I’ve found joy, listening to Pittsburgh songstress Joy Ike, my ears have felt a new sensation.  I really can’t describe or name this sensation but I like it, a whole fucking lot.  Joy Ike to me is the black, Norah Jones.  Her voice is soothing and her lyrics are deep and meaningful, to classify her sound would be to straddle more fences than one.  Her songs, full off indie influence, are heavy with jazz and soul flavor that will even make the late great Nina Simone smile.  I think I’ll keep this short and sweet and just let you guys listen.
