Joel Culpepper Music

We have to come out and admit it, until the other day we had never heard of Joel Culpepper. The artist from South East London made his debut on scene with his 2009 mixtape release The Adventures of Pensmith. His follow up came in 2011 with his second mixtape, Joel Culpepper Meets J. Dilla. Color us late then.

According to Mr. Culpepper’s bio, his “distinctive style inspired by British fashion and modern culture, Joel has been described as the UK’sa answer to Andre 3000 and Frank Ocean.” We don’t think comparisons are fair, Mr. Culpepper’s music is heartfelt and original. Apparently his live show is off the hook too. His band, dubbed ‘The Transformers,’ consists of musicians who play at least two instruments; ‘transforming’ during Joel’s dynamic live sets. Recent performances have included YOYO’S Notting Hill Arts Club, Jools Holland’s Boisdale, Cargo, XOYO, Hard Rock Cafe and Boomtown festival. No word on any North American dates in the future.

Joel Culppepper has made his official debut with the release of his six song EP, Skydive. The project takes listeners on a story-teller’s journey of love and life’s lessons. “I think for me, what I hope stands out is that the audience know I mean it. I believe in what I am singing about and love what I’m doing and am enjoying myself. Hopefully people can enjoy it with me. It is my reality show.” – (Joel Culpepper).

Joel Culpepper Skydive is now available on iTunes. Check out the World Premiere video for track 3 “Heaven” below.
