Allysha Joy 

Potent Lyricism, Unique Musicianship and Killer Vocals

PERFORMANCE TIME: 6.00PM SATURDAY 24 AUGUST

Well versed in poetry and performance, Allysha Joy’s potent lyricism, unique musicianship and incredible vocals have garnered legions of attentive fans the world over.

Seamlessly forging her own sound as singer, songwriter, keys player and producer, Joy is well known as 30/70’s lead vocalist and with a heavy line-up of collaborations over the years, she has marked her place across continents, expansive projects and genres.

In 2022 Allysha brought a brand new amalgamation of her poetic practice to the forefront, with the release of her self-produced sophomore album ‘Torn : Tonic’ on First Word Records. Allysha appears on releases from Rhythm Section, Total Refreshment Centre, Future Classic, First Word and Brownswood, with her next album set for release this September. Her 2018 debut album ‘Acadie : Raw’ on Gondwana Records won ‘Best Soul Album’ at the Music Victoria Awards, was nominated for ‘Best Jazz Album’ at the Worldwide Awards, and featured in many end-of-year lists, including Bandcamp’s Top Soul Albums.

On the live circuit, Joy has performed alongside the likes of Ezra Collective, The Teskey Brothers, Children of Zeus and KOKOROKO as well as performing at notable festivals such as We Out Here, Montreux Jazz Festival and a stand out performance at New York Winter Jazz Festival, 2024.

Allysha’s lyrics weave together a heartfelt mix of love, power, wonder, anger, faith and hope for change. An artist that presents a palette of intricate grace and optimism, whilst unafraid of adding uncomfortable truths. An incredibly powerful live performer; Allysha’s husky vocals sonically sync with her formidable Fender Rhodes playing, arching across influences from jazz, soul, broken-beat and R&B with that uniquely inimitable “Australian” sound.
