Nice connection with Joel!! Very nice and professional singer.
I hope to work with him again soon :)
Seven (7) times I've hired Joel to make something amazing out of my lyrics. Definitely a repeat customer; definitely going to continue that trend. Simply perfect!
Recommend without a shadow of a doubt.
I keep coming back because there is no one that makes melodies and songs out of my lyrics quite like Joel. We are seemingly in synch to a large degree and it just works. If it isn't broke, don't fix it and I'm not about to fix it.
Great guy. Highly enthusiastic. Fun. And gets the job done far better than you are expecting.
100% worth your time!
There is a reason I keep coming back to Joel. Because he is flawless at translating my lyrics into fully formed songs that sound amazing. At this point, me saying how fantastic he is at singing and playing is rote, but I'll continue anyway just in case this is the top most review.
Great communication, great guy, great music.
Hire him, you won't be sorry.
The fourth one down, and as a Van Morrison album was once entitled, "... It's too late to stop now."
Joel is utterly magnificent at creating melodies for my lyrics, and that falsetto he owns is stunning.
Hire him and wait for the magic he brings you.
Just completed a triptych with this man and could not be happier with what he accomplished, and grateful for the final product. Far beyond what I had originally envisioned and worth every cent.
I'm telling you there is no substitute for perfection, and that is what Joel's offered to my songs. And he's a great guy, too.
Two times, two times Joel has performed beyond amazingly while demoing my songs. Cannot begin to tell you how much of a pleasure it is to work with this man, and if you give him a chance (which you really should) - you will not be disappointed.
excellent singer and songwriter!!
Utterly brilliant! Joel took my lyrics and created a masterpiece for me, with incredibly little direction. The final product was so much more than I'd envisioned. So grateful for his decision to take on my song, and his stellar falsetto voice and guitar. Fastest turnaround I've encountered on Soundblaster, as well and a great guy.
it was a great pleasure working with joel and the results are incredible!

Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I released my debut single in 2019, and for 2 years only worked on my own music, playing live most nights a week in London to make a living. When COVID cancelled all gigs, I began working as a freelance songwriter. I have now worked on over 300 projects and songs with artists and brands. This has lead to so many amazing experiences, the best being recording an EP at Abbey Road with Universal Music.

Q: What do you bring to a song?

I record all my vocals on a Lauten LA320 large-diaphragm capacitor mic. This runs through a Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 (3rd Gen), into a Macbook Pro 2020.
