Overview

Overview Joy Ike  w/ Ruut & LEA

We showcase new work by women singers/songwriters. Born to Nigerian immigrants, Joy Ike’s music, voice, and writing has drawn comparisons to female musicians such as Corinne Bailey Rae, Regina Spektor, Norah Jones, and Fiona Apple. Her percussive piano-playing and soaring vocals give homage to her African upbringing.  The granddaughter of a famous opera composer, Ruut grew up in Finland, moved to Budapest, and as a girl came to Nashville, New York, and LA with her accomplished songs and keyboard expertise. Washington DC based singer/songwriter LEA describes her music as SoulFolk, a seamless blend of gospel, jazz, country, R&B, and contemporary folk. LEA has shared the stage with everyone from Dar Williams to Mavis Staples, and the legendary Odetta. 7:30pm | $14, $12 mbrs.

Describing Joy Ike…

“The depth of subjects she tackles in her poetic lyrics are perfectly complimented by a unique blend of neo-soul, with just the right dash of pop… a truly compelling act to watch in person, with the ability to create an intimate setting in locations big and small." – NPR’s All Things Considered

Of Rutt’s songwriting...

”powerful, moody, talented, unique and, above all else, smart.” – Frederick News Post
