Joy Ike and Maggie Pope at The Living Room
Joy Ike returns to The Living Room and Maggie Pope makes her Living Room debut.
About Joy Ike:
Polished and precise, yet buoyed with an airy grace, Joy Ike paints with a broad palette that defies easy categorization. Born to Nigerian immigrants, the singer-songwriters music, voice, and writing have drawn comparisons to female musicians such as Nina Simone, Laura Nyro, and Regina Spektor. But her percussive piano playing and soaring vocals give homage to her African upbringing. Leaving her career as a publicist in 2008, Joy has spent the last 11 years playing thousands of shows across the country. A write-up on NPR's All Things Considered says "The depth of subjects she tackles in her poetic lyrics are perfectly complemented 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."

About Maggie Pope:
With a vocal described as having a "purity to it that we rarely hear" (Ear to the Ground Music), biologist-turned-singer/songwriter, Maggie Pope, pairs an ethereal voice with expressive songwriting. She writes and performs both as a solo artist and as a member of the Philadelphia-based Americana/indie rock band Under the Oak.
Mixed by Grammy Award-winning producer and engineer, Shani Gandhi (Sarah Jarosz - Undercurrent), her debut solo EP, "June Tapes," captures the best of what folk music is today - honest and raw, with an air of homespun simplicity.
