Seattle-based singer-songwriter, harmonica player and visual artist Joel Astley started his first band in 2014 and quickly became a local favorite, garnering accolades as bandleader while performing with numerous Northwest bands, and winning 18 Washington Blues Society “Best of the Blues” Awards in the last six years.
Joel now leads his own award-winning band, and while he performs all over the Pacific Northwest and has appeared on several local recordings, he is now performing and touring with national Blues artists. His debut album, “Seattle To Greaseland”, was recorded and produced with Kid Andersen at Greaseland Studios in San Jose,CA and is scheduled to be released later this year. Joel is also a visual artist who has designed numerous album covers and his work resides in many private collections. Learn more
