From rural Casa Grande, Arizona, Joy Oladokun is the daughter of two Nigerian immigrants. Weekend concert binge-watching with her older sisters inspired her love for music. At 10, she heard Tracy Chapman solo with guitar in hand, which prompted her to pick one up herself. She pursued her path to LA to make music and then wound up in East Nashville, finding common ground among the creative community. From quarantine isolation, Oladokun released her latest album, “in defense of my own happiness (vol. 1)”, an examination of emotion and empathy. The album features a song for the Black Lives Matter movement, co-written with Natalie Hemby, “Who Do I Turn To?” and another one railing against systemic racism, “I See America.” As she finds her footing in a Southern city as a Black queer folkie, Oladokun is a fierce voice demanding equality.
