Joy Crookes – inspiring & photovoltaic…

Joy, who has Bangladeshi-Irish heritage, says: “I’ve suffered from mental health issues since I was young. Where I grew up, this wasn’t a topic you would bring up when your mum was fixing you a plate of dal or when your mates were showing you how to flirt with boys and girls, so when I had my first episode of depression...”

Music has a way to soften the blow with topics like mental health – it can make situations that seem completely out of reach, tangible – especially when you feel like you’re living with another version of yourself...”

I hope we can all continue breaking down boundaries that stretch between generations and cultures and continue this conversation about how we really feel...”

The highly relatable words spring out with an inspiring & photovoltaic elasticity. Joy’s voice is adept, sure-footed and effortlessly nimble. This is an important and brilliantly concocted piece of heart-racing gorgeousness.
