Soulful folksinger Ayo's debut album, Joyful, is an easygoing blend of soul, folk and reggae sensibilities that isn't afraid to wear its heart on its sleeve. Her rich cultural background and Bohemian nature have allowed her to develop into an independent and inventive rising star. The result is a collection of smart, worldly, bittersweet songs.
