New Track: Shelter – Joy Oladokun

joy shelter

Described as raw, honest and heartwarming, LA-based singer/songwriter JOY OLADOKUN has revealed a brand new single, Shelter, the first release from her forthcoming debut album, Carry.

Combining roots rock, folk with a splash of ambient pop, the four-minute effort sees the present-day Tracy Chapman delivers, in a soulfully-raw style, the meaning of giving and receiving love without reservation.

Writing and playing the guitar from the age of 10, Joy has always used music as a way to make sense of the struggles and celebrate the triumph of life. Last year, she released her self-produced debut EP titled Cathedrals.

To put her next project into motion, Joy started a Kickstarter campaign and received $30,000.  The project comes in the form of  the debut album Carry, which is set for release on April 29th…but for now, get a sneak peek of the album and to listen to Shelter.
