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 – Blues Leaf Records.
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!”. ‘SHAKE!’ is the first single from DaSilva’s new album entitled “Everywhere From Here”. 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.
