JDR
With a music career spanning over two decades, guitarist and songwriter, Joel Del Rosario has just about touched every genre of music from: Classical, Jazz, Hip Hop, and Southern Gospel. Classically trained in Viola, Joel studied, performed, and was second chair in the San Francisco School of the Arts Orchestra.... Though winning several competitions with the renowned SOTA orchestra, Joel felt the pull to venture into the world of jazz, which began his love affair with the genre and which would envelop a majority of his music career. Currently, his 3rd album, "Coast to Coast", an attractive mix of hip/upbeat dance tunes to the 'smooth and sexy', has been grabbing the attention of listeners worldwide as his single "Hey It's the Weekend" has been featured on jazz stations all around the world. Featuring ten engaging tracks, "Coast to Coast", will certainly be an album you can't help but play over and over again. His previous albums “All Him” and “Calm In the Storm” continue to be aired both nationally and internationally. He is on tour with Surewill and is also active in his community with the “Relay For Life” organization, which raises money towards cancer awareness and research.
