An endless passion for Blues
Joel DaSilva is an American blues rock guitarist, singer and songwriter hailing from Chicago, Illinois, and currently based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. “Joel DaSilva is one of the finest musicians I’ve ever worked with, a true professional. He’s paid his dues and deserves national recognition.” Albert Castiglia – RUF Records
“Joel DaSilva is a fantastic guitarist. I always look forward to every opportunity to work with him. He plays with a BIG heart and a BIG tone.” – Billy Gibson – 2009 Blues Music Award Instrumentalist Of The Year.
Delving back deeply into his Chicago Blues and Americana roots, DaSilva has emerged with some truly visceral new material, the culmination of months of soul searching, hard living and late night driving. The result? “Everywhere From Here”, Featuring the single “SHAKE!” released in July, 2017. ‘SHAKE!’ is the first single from DaSilva’s latest album entitled “Everywhere From Here” released in September 2017. Produced at nationally renowned TrunNoyz Studios in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, ‘SHAKE!’ captures the essence of Joel’s combustible new blues sound which combines elements of lo fi garage blues with a driving roots beat. The accompanying video was shot at local blues environs throughout South Florida and promises to provide an evocative visual backdrop to Joel’s sizzling new track nominated for IMEA Award.
