Irish gig of the week: Joy Crookes

Words: Dylan Murphy

District and Jack Daniel’s share an authentic love for music culture and we thought who better to team up with to see out the year and celebrate the return of live music. Every week, we’re handpicking the must attend show on the island, ranging from underground rappers in dimly lit rooms to rising stars on sold out tours.

Fresh off the back of the release of her debut album, Joy Crookes heads to Dublin for her biggest Irish headliner to date. It comes after a series of secret pop-up shows across mainland UK and with a collaboration with rapper Jafaris under her belt and family ties to the capital it’s looking to be a homecoming of sorts.

Having been nominated for the Brits Rising Star Award and placing fourth on the BBC Sound of 2020 the singer made good on the promise of her early releases and is cementing herself as a serious contender in the world of RnB, soul and alternative sounds with the release of Skin.

Joy’s headliner in the Academy comes after ‘Feet Don’t Fail Me Now’ was included on the Fifa 22 soundtrack.

Joy Crookes plays the Academy on Thursday 11 November, doors open at 19.00.
