Press Text
Joel Sarakula is a UK-based Australian artist who writes, produces and sings Soulful Pop, gazing out at a contemporary world through vintage glasses.

His music is informed by a rich, 1970s-inspired palette, drawing on Soft-Rock, Funk and Disco influences - sunny, uptempo jams for darker times. With his long blonde hair and vintage threads, he is aware that to some he may look like a long lost Gibb brother of The Bee Gees or Ray Manzarek fronting a 70s soul band. But at live concerts his irreverent and ironic sense of humour is always there barely below the surface... or the flares.

Born in Sydney and international in outlook Sarakula is a songwriter who has travelled the world in search of his muse, experiencing everything from being a victim of Caribbean carjackings to performing in the remote fishing villages of Norway, via the dive bars of Europe and the US.

His previous albums 'Companionship' (2020), 'Love Club' (2018), 'The Imposter' (2015) and 'The Golden Age' (2013) have racked up generous plays across UK and European radio and got him noticed in The New York Times, The Independent (UK), The Irish Times, Shindig! (UK), Stern (Germany), Rolling Stone Germany, El Pais (Spain) and Sydney Morning Herald.

Joel Sarakula is regular fixture on the festival and club circuit in the UK and Europe. Ever the internationalist, he tours with pickup bands sourced from each territory he plays in: a Barcelona band for Spain, a Berlin band for Germany and so forth. This cross-cultural exchange harks back to a golden era in the 1960s and 70s of the travelling soul and pop artists who did the same.
