Joel has been performing since the late 70's, getting his first start in a Frederick County dance band at age 16. At 18, he continued for 3 years as a member of Just Us, a Variety Band which led him to Fresh, a Baltimore Top 40 band in the early 80's. In 1985, he took a different course and founded Crystal Sea, a Southern Gospel group which toured the neighboring 9 states for 15 years and recorded 8 albums and a national single release. 

After taking a break to raise a family, 
he continues to work heavily within 
the audio world at Crosswind Church, playing and singing on the Praise Team, engineering audio, and recording 3 albums. Joel is now adding his expertise and experience to a long-standing Baltimore legend, Appaloosa.
