Joal will also have CDs and other merchandise for sale. Joal’s debut album Sojourner won an Album of the Year Award at the 2012 Western Canadian Music Awards. His first single Take My World Apart went on to win a Song of the Year Award in the 2012 Independent Music Awards.

The album debuted at #2 on Earshot’s National Folk/Roots/Blues Charts and received funding support from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and FACTOR Canada.
