Breakout singer, songwriter and musician Joy Oladokun has announced the first headlining tour of her career. This coming spring, she'll travel to 25 cities across the country in support of her critically-acclaimed record In Defense of My Own Happiness.

Oladokun will kick off the run in Austin, Texas, in April, before heading up the West Coast, to multiple cities in California and the Pacific Northwest, then trekking back across the Midwest and East Coast. Nashville indie pop artist Bre Kennedy will serve as support for the entire tour.

Oladokun's full 2022 tour schedule is below. Tickets for the shows, along with her already announced support slots for R&B artist Pink Sweat$ in select venues this November, are on sale now. Fans can find more information at Oladokun's official website.

It's been an eventful few months for Oladokun, who was nominated for Emerging Act of the Year at the 2021 Americana Honors & Awards. She recently produced, arranged, sang and recorded a cover of the Who's iconic song "Who Are You" to accompany the official trailer for the new television series CSI: Vegas, and this Saturday (Oct. 23), she'll open for Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit during one night of their eight-night residency at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium.
