Off the strength of her critically acclaimed project Diaspora Joy Postell comes to Songbyrd after selling out her hometown Ottobar show.
It’s been two long years since the soul-shaking release of “Consciousness” by local singer
Joy Postell. This first single by the then-23-year-old artist was an instant tour de force, combining fierce lyrics, fiery jazz rhythms,
and bold vision, speaking candidly on the injustices faced by the African-American community. Music lovers and critics near and far waited on the
edge of their seats for the release of her full-length debut. And now, with searing anthems, throwback ballads, and one hauntingly beautiful spiritual,
the just-released record, Diaspora, is a dynamic feat, continuing Postell’s powerful fusion of jazz, soul, hip-hop, and R&B with fearless
social commentary and life lessons on love and growth
