Joel sings for the first time at 511 Danforth Ave with acclaimed jazz pianist Gordon Braun-Woodbury
Joel Sheridan transcends musical categories, with a repertoire that embraces jazz and pop standards, vintage Broadway, swing, bossas, R&B, urban blues, and beautifully-crafted originals. Sheridan possesses a rich, warm, powerful, and emotionally expressive voice, and a charismatic, engaging personality that delights audiences. Joel sings with passion, humour, and poignancy; solidly swinging on rhythm numbers, and intimately confiding on ballads.
Inspired by the great jazz and jazz-influenced pop vocalists of the 1940s and 1950s (including Nat King Cole, Johnny Hartman, Peggy Lee, and Frank Sinatra), but with his own distinctive and contemporary sound, this consummate performer breathes new life into much-loved standards, and rarely-heard musical treasures, revitalizing the great classic pop and jazz standards songbooks.
