Anjelika "Jelly" Joseph

Anjelika "Jelly" Joseph is one of the more versatile, powerful singers and entertainers on the scene today, particularly after the smash success of her hit song “Fya” along with HaSizzle.

Joseph came late to the table, but has made a meal out of the entertainment business in just a few short years. She grew up in New Orleans with artists like Irma Thomas as role models. After making her performance debut with “O Holy Night” in 12th grade, she soon jumped to Bourbon Street clubs to cut her chops, appeared on “American Idol,” then partnered with friend Tarriona “Tank” Ball in the eclectic, Grammy-nominated upstart band Tank and the Bangas as backing vocalist.

Joseph is now commanding audiences around the world as a solo artist, in partnership with HaSizzle and other bounce artists, and, most notably, as lead singer with the funk jazz jam band Galactic. And to celebrate her genre-bending skills, Joseph can also be found singing with the Original Pinettes, the all-female New Orleans brass band.

Lately Joseph has been focusing on her solo career, collaborating with on hits like “Getcha Sum” and “Fya” with HaSizzle. Other collaborators include G-Eazy, with whom she co-penned “Get Right or Get Left,” and Cha Wa, with whom she performs the charming, bouncy “Love in Your Heart.”
