Oxford Art Factory, Sydney, NSW
Twenty year-old producer- singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist JOY. will hit the road in March and April to celebrate the release of her EP "Six" on March 2nd.
Produced by JOY. in collaboration with Khaled Rohaim (Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Ty Dolla $ign), the upcoming EP, including 'Smoke Too Much', was the culmination of countless writing and recording sessions with a creative team comprised of Dream Big luminaries Dopamine, Manu Crooks, Anfa Rose, and Miracle. "We work really well as a collective together and they inspire me and push me creatively," she says. JOY'S production has also graced tracks of the likes of the previously mentioned artists Manu Crooks, Anfa Rose and Australian rapper 360.
JOY. gave the first taste of the EP and her new music in November of 2017 with the triple j favourite 'Smoke Too Much' which has accumulated over 3 Million streams to date and also gained support from Zane Lowe on Beats 1. In her relatively short run, the ambitious multihyphenate has graduated from solo bedroom recordings, including her debut single 'Captured', to her acclaimed debut EP, ODE, which landed #1 on the iTunes electronic charts in mid-2015 and has been streamed over 5 million times to date. Additionally, JOY. has garnered strong support from influential tastemakers by the likes of Nylon magazine, which proclaimed, "JOY. could be Australia's next great pop export", and the before-mentioned Beats1 creative center Zane Lowe, who earmarked JOY. as 'One to Watch' at 2015's Beats Sound Symposium in Sydney.
In 2017 JOY. hit the road with US superstar Kehlani on her August Australian tour. Following the release of ODE, JOY completed a sold-out Australian tour and also performed at festivals such as Vivid Sydney's inaugural one-day music festival Curve Ball, and the annual electronic festival Listen Out.
