Under the moniker Joelistics’ his anticipated debut album Voyager arrived in 2011 and was nominated for an Age Music award. Written with just a laptop between China, Mongolia and Europe, it opened up a new lane in Australian hiphop. The Age wrote, “Joelistics’ love of beat poetry takes his narratives and vistas to a level as vivid as any great Australian poet.”
His second album Blue Volume was one of the Sydney Morning Herald’s Top 20 albums of 2014. Rolling Stone described it as “a celebration and mourning of the current state of the world, voiced by a smart, incisive writer.”
In 2017, he focused his attention on production and co-writing for other artists most notably with Haiku Hands, Mojo Juju, Hermitude and even a %2 song writing with Madonna.
