Joel Cross grew up singing gospel songs with his seven siblings. After picking up his first guitar at age 12, it was evident that making music was his calling. His heartfelt approach showcased his ability to make each piece sound new, truly a sound all his own.
One afternoon, while playing the Dallas Arboretum, Joel decided to appease the crowd’s unconventional request for a Taylor Swift song. A fan happened to catch his very soulful rendition of “Shake it Off” on video and uploaded it to YouTube. The next morning,
over a half a million people had watched the video, and Joel’s face was on every major news source in Dallas. The viral video quickly catapulted his career as he captured the attention of fans across the globe, including Ellen DeGeneres, America’s Got Talent,
Capitol Records, Time, and MTV. Four time Grammy award winning artist, India Arie, was also intrigued by Joel when she heard one of his original songs, “Candlelight,” and invited him to collaborate with her on her upcoming album. In addition to co-writing with India, Joel will soon be releasing a new full length album.
