Bonus Episode: Joy Ike – Won’t You Be My Neighbor? 

Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Joy Ike is a Pittsburgh based singer and songwriter whose music, voice, and writing have drawn comparisons to great female musicians like Nina Simone, Laura Nyro, and Regina Spektor. Her polished, precise and graceful music defies easy categorization. 

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.”

Recently Joy released a brilliant cover song and music video for the Mister Rogers Neighborhood Theme song, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor”. She has stopped by our podcast neighborhood for a visit today and I am just thrilled have her with us.
