Originally from Massachusetts, Joel Crouse draws from local musical icons like Aerosmith, Boston, and James Taylor. By age 16 he had already formed two original bands playing songs he wrote. His first ‘Beatles-Esque’ band gained a lot of buzz, yet ultimately broke up due to members leaving for college. At that point Crouse was 17 years old and decided to make the move to Nashville to pursue music professionally. He started playing dive bars and ended up opening for the likes of Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran on Swift’s RED Tour and a string of dates opening for Darius Rucker. 
 Crouse has built up a fan base on the road playing to as many people as possible. Whether in a dive, an arena, or stadium, he is known for his electric live shows that have charmed audiences into lifelong followers. “I try very hard to bring as honest of a performance as possible,” Joel shares. And it comes through loud and clear, not only through the concerts but the music itself. 
 His latest release, “On My Way,” is expected for release in October, co-written with Ed Sheeran and Crouse’s longtime guitarist and collaborator Kyle Rife. It’s powerful message of support during darkest of hours is something very personal to the singer/songwriter. 
 In addition to his own new music, Crouse has a song on the New Hootie & the Blowfish record, also co-written with Sheeran, Rucker and Rife.
