Oftentimes, a great leap of faith can make all the difference when it comes to achieving a dream. The minute that Joy Ike turned in her letter of resignation at her full-time job, her dream became a reality. She was bound and determined to place a stamp on this world as she knew God had called her to do. And so far, there has not been one iota of regret on her behalf. Joy Ike is the real deal: a singer/songwriter with something to say and ample talent to deliver it. A warm and inviting voice wrapped up in strong and generous piano-driven pop/rock arrangements is the general recipe for Ike, who may be the best thing to come out of Western Pennsylvania in a decade or more. Free and open to the public.
