Joy IkeI can't remember how it feels
to live a day all by myself
and never really worry
about someone else
~ Time, Joy Ike

Pittsburgh singer-songwriter Joy Ike lives by the motto, "It won't be easy, but it will be worth it."  Making the transition to full-time musician was not an easy decision, but not only has she blossomed as an artist, she even takes the time to pass on her lessons learned in an advice blog for other indie creative types.  Whether you're a music maker or appreciator, her rich voice and intelligent, bubbly piano-pop sensibilities will win your ears over in no time.
