"Joel Rafael's songs are filled with passion and compassion," says Jackson Browne. "Passion for social justice, and compassion – for those among us who have to struggle for a place at the table of American prosperity. His voice is unmistakably his own, big, warm and strong, and a conductor for the human emotions that connect us all."
Joel Rafael's ninth album, Baladista (2015), was recorded at his ranch in North San Diego County, California, accompanied by Greg Leisz, James "Hutch" Hutchinson, John Inmon, and Terry "Buffalo" Ware; its ten essential ballads embrace and celebrate the human spirit and reflect the half-century journey of an American Songwriter.
