The youngest of five brothers, it’s no surprise that Joel Stewart’s songwriting conveys a sense of timelessness far beyond his twenty-three years. With his sibling’s musical guidance, it’s easy to hear a lifetime of influences in Stewart’s sound, who credits the likes of Justin Vernon (Bon Iver/Volcano Choir), Tallest Man On Earth, Dermot Kennedy, Elliott Smith and Rodriguez as inspiration. But while his sound has roots in the past, his approach to presenting his music to the world is very much of his generation. Working with the equally fresh-faced producer Lauren Deakin Davies, Stewart’s tender lyrics of young love are transformed into powerful protests of emotion. His latest single Non Believer, which Stewart describes as "a song that came about after a pretty sad situation, hopefully has a real 'summer in the sun, beer in hand' kind of feeling to it" was made available on 29th May 2019, and was soon added to Spotify’s own Lo-Fi Indie Playlist. “These first releases powerfully resonate with all, through thought provoking lyricism and Joel’s beautifully raw voice: an artist and music with an extremely bright future ahead” - Scarlett Notes “Ah man, that voice hits you” - BBC Introducing Beds Bucks and Herts Presented by Saci Szecsi Sound recording and mix by Martin Lumsden, Cream Room Sound Productions Camera Paul Black Produced by Marie De La Montagne
