"Really clear and expressive. Sounds like someone just cleared out all the gunk from inside my ears."

Born in Sydney, Joel attended high school at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music High School. Moving to London at the age of 18, he studied at the Royal College of Music as the ABRSM International Scholar, graduating with First Class Honours in 2008. Before his 19th birthday, he had recorded and played with pop sensation Mika, and continues to be a drummer to the stars. His long list of artists ranges from the biggest artists the world has seen, through to the most interesting up and coming pop acts, across many genres of music. They include La Roux, Boy George, The Pierces, Patrick Wolf, Kim Wilde, Guy Chambers, Heaven 17, Sandie Shaw, Jamie Hince (The Kills), Frankmusik, Tigerstyle, The Philharmonia Orchestra, and Midge Ure. He currently splits his time between Sydney and London.
