JOEL ECKELS writes from the depths of his soul. His sound has a nostalgic quality while remaining unique and all it's own. Eckels draws influence from classic soul artists such as Bill Withers and Otis Redding, the southern soul of Creedence Clearwater Revival and his rock n' roll roots of Led Zeppelin. His songs are personal and truthful as he plays from the heart. With lyrics that go straight to the bone and an affinity for the funk, this artist will truly move you while he grooves you. Check out his new album, "The Weight Of These Things" now available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.
