Joel Sarakula is an AUS/UK artist who writes, produces and sings soulful pop, gazing out at a 60's and 70's tinged world through his vintage glasses...
imagine Ray Manzarek fronting a 70s soul band. Born in Sydney and now based in London, his current album THE IMPOSTER has racked up generous plays across the UK, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium and Italy. He is a fixture on the festival and club circuit including appearances at SXSW, Primavera, The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, V-ROX Vladivostok and Reeperbahn Festival. Sarakula is a songwriter who has travelled the world in search of his muse, experiencing everything from being the victim of Caribbean carjackings to performing in the remote fishing villages of Norway, via the dive bars of Europe and the US. It was the hodge-podge musical tapestry of England’s capital that finally drew him to a settling point.
With personal tastes that span from the more avant-garde to soul and pop greats like Sly Stone, Todd Rundgren and Elvis Costello, there are clear nods to contemporaries like Beck, Unkown Mortal Orchestra and Erland Øye in terms of ambition and style.
