Hello Friends and Neighbors!

Welcome to my neighborhood! 


Wow, it's February of the new year already.  Tomorrow is Ground Hog day as I write this and it will mark my 34th anniversary of moving to Austin.  It seems like yesterday but this little town has done some serious growing.  Hopefully I have too.

I have 3 gigs this month, all at NEW WORLD DELI which is turning into my home away from home.  I'm just delighted to be playing with the effervescent KATIE GOSNELL and my good friend RUSTY NELSON on 2/6.  Wed 2/11 will find me sharing the stage with the amazing DAVID PULKINGHAM and Fri 2/27 marks the start of what I hope will be a long running residency with one of my favorite songwriters JEAN SYNODINOS.

Speaking of songwriting, 3 of my songs made the finals of the 2015 AUSTIN SONGWRITER'S CONTEST.  I didn't take home any prizes but I'm honored just to be listed with some absolutely fabulously talented writers.  Time to get crackin' on new music for next year!

Be good to yourselves and I hope to see you soon!

Peace, Joel



I got with the uber talented BRADLEY KOPP and recorded 4 tunes. I'd love to tickle your ears with them!  Go to the AUDIO page to either stream them or take advantage of the limited time free download of "THE BUDA SESSIONS"!

In other news, you can now order "The Return Of Bosco Martin" directly from this site.  Just go to the "STORE" page.  Already have a copy but still want to donate to the COLON CANCER ALLIANCE?  There is now  a "DONATE" button in the STORE.  And--THANK YOU in advance!
