Joel Geleynse (born december 7, 1980) is a Canadian recording artist (with a sizeable fanbase also in the Netherlands), model, TV star, and figure skater.
His “Adelesque” emotive lyrical music has resonated with his existing international fan base with a sound like a fusion of One Republic, Savage Garden, Maroon 5 and Dashboard Confessional. Joel's music appeals to mainstream listeners, country fans, and indie niches.
His songwriting has landed his music as the theme for the Food Network "Chef School", a Semi-Finalist in the International Songwriting Competition 2010, and Winner of the "Hamilton24" 2010 (as well as three national music award nominations in 2004).
In a career not yet spanning a decade, Joel has debuted a full length studio album in 2004, selling 4000 copies, released an EP in 2009, and most recently two singles that have been getting heavy radio play in the Netherlands and Belgium.
Joel has released three professional music videos to date of his original material, the most recent of which has been getting heavy rotation on Dutch music video channels.
Joel is ripe and ready for continued development as he's ambitious, committed and has the talent, image, and drive needed to be a true success story in the entertainment business.
