PREMIERE: Woes – [Joël]

Canadian crooner, Joëlwas last featured back in May with “Vent (Stripped),” which showcased his soft, smooth vocals. His latest effort, “Woes,” the second track off his forthcoming EP GRUNGE GOSPEL (SIDE B), show as a different side of the multi-faceted artist.

Joël trades in the stripped-down, light feel of “Vent” for a grungier, more frenzied energy. With a stark, string-laden backdrop laced with some knifing drums setting the stage, Joël (fittingly) tackles the “dark cloud” of doubt looming over him with a determined, confident delivery. Whether something softer like “Vent” or more frenetic like “Woes,” The T-dot native can deliver an authentic, emotionally-charged performance that really draws you into his world.

If you dig “Woes,” be sure to check out GRUNGE GOSPEL (SIDE B) when it drops on May 22nd!
