Pei & the Joynt

 
 

Pei & The Joynt are a pop/hip-hop duo like nothing you’ve seen before. 

Pei Pilgrim and Peter Joynt met for the first time in 2018. They were 13 and 39 years old respectively. They came together after Peter, a local rapper with a speech impediment, visited Pei’s school in Ottawa Canada to give a motivational speech about anti-bullying, resiliency, and the power of music. Having a speech impediment, Peter’s story is one of overcoming challenges and fears to face every day with inspiration and confidence. Through music, he found his voice - as his stuttering completely disappears when he breaks into rhyme. Inspired by his story, and feeling a kinship after being bullied at school herself, the 13-year old singer and multi-instrumentalist Pei reached out to Peter. It took only a quick sampling of her work to prompt Peter to suggest they collaborate on a song together. The outcome of that conversation is their first single, “Loving This Feeling”. The song has been garnering local media and radio attention, and the newly formed duo Pei & The Joynt have just released their first EP together.
