Joell
And you can stream it in full...

Scottish newcomer Joell seems to stand apart from his surroundings.

Growing up in Edinburgh, he wanted to sculpt his own sound, one rooted in hip-hop beats and a confessional R&B style.

Working in a DIY fashion, Joell was drawn into the orbit of Young Fathers who kindly allowed him to utilise their studio space.

It's here that work on new EP 'IGNORANCE' began. Striking, deeply individual songwriting, the billowing production is allied to that wonderful voice.

Containing three remarkably distinct songs, 'IGNORANCE' blazes a trail for others to follow, raising the bar in the process.

Joell explains: “Everything was created and self-funded by myself and my friends, self-taught individuals from a basement in Young Fathers studio in Leith, Edinburgh. Scotland’s stuck in its traditional ways especially with regards to hip-hop music.”

“This project has taken me a year to package up and through music I can finally express my experience of the ups and downs of modern day youth life and love. I don’t believe in conforming to todays society and the aim of ‘Ignorance’ is to push listeners to be different be unique be creative and be yourself.”
