New Music on the way!!!I  

I know I've been a bit out of the loop for a while, but I assure you there's NEW MUSIC on the way!

Touring with LUKAS NELSON & PROMISE OF THE REAL has been quite the adventure to say the least, but since I'm on the production side of things with them, I haven't found s much time to think about my own music.

Well, I'm finally in a place where I'm ready to get back into it.

Happy to announce that I'm finishing up a number of new songs in the studio to be released soon! Stay tuned for official release dates, but I promise some new tunes by the end of the year regardless. There will be a series of single releases and videos coming your way in the next few weeks!

I have also announced that I'll be playing the Hotel Cafe main stage on Wed, Dec 5th at 10pm. I hope all of you LA folk can make it out to that one. It's been too long.

Thanks for all of your support. Looking forward to sharing more music with you.

-Joel

 

 

Been a minute...how about a show?! 

As many of you might know, I am involved in all different sides of music and I love all of it. I've spent the past few months out on the road with LUKAS NELSON & PROMISE OF THE REAL as their tour manager and sound engineer, which has been quite the rock n roll experience. Such a great band and a cool bunch of guys. We've been fortunate enough to have been on the road with Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow, Margo Price, Nicki Blum, Jason Isbell and even Bob Dylan! It's certainly been a trip and I've learned a lot. It's hard not to be inspired when you get a chance to reflect.

Now that I'm home for a minute, I'm dying to play some music. Join me at the Hotel Cafe Second Stage on WED, AUGUST 23RD at 10pm. I'll be playing a set of tunes from old to new and maybe a few twists. I'll have some talented friends joining me as well. Cant wait. See you there.

SHOW TONIGHT in LA! 

Very excited for the show tonight in LA at The Hotel Cafe Second Stage. Rehearsal felt really good last night. Joining me will be Rob Humphreys on drums, Joel Gottschalk on bass and David Steele on guitar. If you don't know these guys, trust me...they're monsters. I've been wanting to play with them for a while and can't wait for this show.  

My long time friend, Wilder Embry, will be playing at 9pm. He's in from Nashville and is one of my favorite people. He's also an awesome songwriter. The night will also feature the always amazing Jesse Thomas at 8pm and Kris Orlowski at 7pm.  

Needless to say, it's going to be a fantastic night of music and friends.
