Joel DaSilva has blues running through his veins. Born and raised in his sweet home, Chicago, DaSilva hails from a musical family. As soon as he was old enough to work, Joel took a job as a bar back in a blues joint where his older brother tended bar. The goal was to get closer to the music, immersing in the scene. Eventually, he was setting up equipment for touring bands and getting to know them in exchange for lessons from the masters and lessons in Music Business 101. By the age of 18, DaSilva joined his first band, Junior Drinkwater & the Thirstquenchers. He went on to play in jump blues, blues, psycho-billy, and surf-oriented bands like The Regulators and the Hep Cat Boo Daddies before breaking out on his own as a solo artist.
With a resume that includes performances with heavy hitters like B.B. King, A.C. Reed, The Fabulous Thunderbird’s, Reverend Horton Heat and opening for acts as varied as: J.J. Grey, The White Stripes, The Black Crows, Jeff Beck, and Jimmie Vaughan, DaSilva has already made a mark in the industry; and is poised to become a power player….He is the real deal.
His tone matches his soul. His voice matches his heart.
