Joel Myles is an artist with a gift for clever wordplay. His songs are diverse, engaging, catchy and delivered with passion, exuberance and punch by his full Rock band sound. Not your typical singer-songwriter. Joel has been influenced by many guitar driven bands such as Powderfinger, Foo Fighters, R.E.M, Silverchair and mixes his musical interests in Blur, The Beatles, Joy Division, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Whitlams and Josh Pyke into a unique Pop Rock Australian sound that sets him apart from other Male artist solo stories.
