Biography

Joel Stanton is a songwriter and producer in Los Angeles. Over the last three years, he has honed in on a sound that balances dreamy vocals, drowsy synth layers, and driving rhythms. In addition to his work as a solo artist, he writes and performs with psych-pop outfit Perfect Families and is one half of the pop/dance duo JV Wonder.

Stanton’s debut album, In Harmony, was written after migrating from the comfortable gray of Seattle to the palm tree patchwork of Los Angeles. The album combines synth sounds from the 80s and 90s with drum modules and samples as an ode to nostalgic indie rock, lofi house, and synth pop.

Joel Stanton draws much of his influence from contemporaries in the new wave, R&B, and chillwave arenas, while a fondness for Paul Simon and Hall and Oates linger in his singer-songwriter subconscious. His vocal-forward approach is a tribute to the pop music tradition that has inspired him since day one.
