Joi sat down with Celeste Headlee to discuss twenty years of sonic innovation, raising her daughter in Atlanta, and her personal music heroes.

20 years ago, Atlanta singer and songwriter Joi deviated from the traditional sounds of R&B with the release of her debut album, “The Pendulum Vibe.” She’s now considered as one of the originators of the neo-soul music movement and has collaborated with artists like OutKast and Goodie Mob. She returns home this week to headline the Atlanta Jazz Festival on Friday night. We speak with Joi about her music and how the Atlanta music scene has changed. - Via GPB
