At just under five-feet tall, Evie Joy plays her set with no shoes on for a more grounded performance. Having been recognized by PopDust for writing, "a canticle of female empowerment," one of Evie's passions is to inspire women to live their truest, most powerful lives, unburdened by social norms. Joy is a recent recipient of the New York Women's Fund Grant, has played over 50 Sofar Sounds shows, and has opened for Ava Max, Sheryl Crow, and Social House.
A multi-instrumentalist, Evie uses her ukulele Ed, a keyboard, a bass, multiple percussive instruments (including a banana), and a loop pedal to build vocal/ instrumental arrangements live. Evie studied opera for 12 years but currently plays what she calls “ukulele rap” and has toured all across the globe, from London to Seattle and even on Caribbean Cruise Lines. A recipient of the Johnny Mercer Fellowship, Evie gets the crowd laughing alongside her by adding funny one liners in between verses. “There is a sadness in everything,” she says in regard to her comedy in her music, “but that’s where we should find humor.”
Be sweet, be tough,
Remember that you are enough.
A Pineapple Poem
A pineapple takes 2(!) years to grow,
So have patience with you because you’re all you know,
Keep faith in process!
Because It’s all progress.
Just try to go with the flow-
As we work, we bloom from within,
Remember you’re blossoming even when
You can’t see the fruits of your labors.
Keep a thick skin, you,
Always stay sweet.
Make yourself your favorite person to meet.
