Joy Crookes

Born and raised in Elephant and Castle, Joy Crookes’ musical journey has garnered Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill comparisons.

The daughter of a Bengali mother and an Irish father, she grew up listening to an eclectic mix of genres – everything from Nick Cave, to King Tubby, Kendrick Lamar and Gregory Isaac and as a result she’s curious, passionate and music obsessed – traits that creep into her own creations at every opportunity.

Joy’s debut album, Skin, was released in October 2021.
