0Joy Oladokun (from the album Proof of Life available on Amigo Records/Verve-Forecast) (by Danny McCloskey)
Sending out her songs as ‘helpful anthems’, Joy Oladokun delivers Proof of Life, her recent release. She opens the album with a love story in “Keeping the Lights On” while she tosses out in-reach hopes as inspiration for “Somehow” and offers supportive words of encouragement with “Pride” over a lone piano’s echoing melody. Joy Oladokun feels Proof of Life is ‘evidence of how I live’, sharing that ‘I began making music because I wasn’t hearing from the ‘everyday human being’ on the radio’. Proof Of Life is a Singer/Songwriter coming of age release, a place where songs from the heart find a worldwide acceptance in the Pop marketplace.
Joy Oladokun makes “The Hard Way” an experiential DIY-guide, showing the path as ‘Jesus raised me, good weed saved me’ while she offers an outsiders perspective to confirm life working itself out in “Taking Things for Granted”. Proof of Life showcases studio guests when Mount Joy joins in for “Friends” as Manchester Orchestra are part of “You at the Table” and Chris Stapleton is on board with “Sweet Symphony”. Joy Oladokun takes her role as Folk singer seriously, speaking personal words as universal answers, encouraging with “Changes”, taking up the banner of “Revolution” (with Maxo Kream), and exiting Proof of Life joined by Noah Kahan for “We’re All Gonna Die”.
