Sydney, Australia-turned-L.A.-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Joel Taylor always seems to be caught between his Australian legacy and his adopted home.
We were first introduced to Joel in 2017 when he debuted with his double single “Two Sides”. His unique blend of American soul music with modern touches driven by his deeply, emotional and soaring voice made his presence known as one of the new and exciting faces in the singer/songwriter world. “Two Sides”, a piano driven, energized, ballad shined a spotlight on Joel’s masterful piano-playing while the B-side “What Good Is Love”gave us a beautifully yet heartbreaking, acoustic driven, love song. These “two sides” of Taylor are omnipresent in his work.
Taylor’s newest single is “Give Myself Away” which he co-wrote and produced with Josh Cumbee and Afsheen (Madonna, Galantis, Chris Brown) and was mixed by the legendary Bob Clearmountain.
With his third track “Give Myself Away” out in the world, Joel is looking towards putting the final touches on his debut EP coming later his year, touring and connecting with new fans through his music. “I’m really excited for my live shows this round, introducing songs and stories to new faces. I have one song in the works that’s coming soon called “Moment’s Notice” where this Aussie, Jewish boy is gonna take ya’ll to church! I’m ready to play every instrument, sing every background vocal, scream my lungs out, play every hole in the wall and then some in order to share my stories with the masses”.
