Nella-joi is an up and coming Atlanta-based independent recording artist and songwriter, whose love of music is heavily influenced by r&b, jazz, pop and contemporary gospel greats of today and yesterday.

Audiences enjoy experiencing nella-joi’s vocal stylings, appreciating how she explores her own musical uniqueness, while paying tribute to the artistry of singers she admires, including Phyllis Hyman, Lalah Hathaway, Whitney Houston, Yolanda Adams, Natalie Cole, Rachelle Farrell, Nancy Wilson, etc.

A passionate music lover for most of her life, nella-joi found listening to music to be healing and therapeutic, as she raised her daughter born with physical and mental challenges. As a result, she looks to music as a means of inspiring and motivating everyone, but particularly families of children and adults with disabilities, to never to give up on their dreams, even as they work to overcome life’s challenges.

Songs on her first CD project, “Nella-Joi Next Chapter” fuses the R&B, jazz, pop and soul genres. The first single, “Just do it!” Is a jazzy, mid-tempo tune, which is resonating with many, as she addresses how dreams are deferred, through the unfortunate habit of procrastination.
