Joel Sena

Sax drenched melodies, infectious grooves and emotive songwriting is the heart of Joel

Sena's soul music.

Hailing from Sydney, Joel comes from humble beginnings. After studying music at the

Australian Institute of Music he went on to become one of Sydney’s most in-demand

Saxophonists. Joel has graced a slew of iconic venues with both national and international


After a solid few years playing as a sideman, it was time for Joel to step out into the

spotlight. Having written his first song at age 12, his upcoming debut EP draws inspiration

from an eclectic array of influences from Miles Davis to Kendrick Lamar and Hiatus Kaiyote.

His music is a compelling and raw fusion of Soul, R&B and Jazz. It features his compelling

saxophone style alongside some beautifully crafted songs and modern production. Also

featured on the EP are the sultry vocals of up and coming singer Phoebe Papatheodorou.

The future's looking bright for the budding Producer and Saxophonist with his debut

self-titled EP scheduled for release in September. Alongside this release are plans for live

performances and Joel plans to get back in the studio to release more music in 2017.

“I’ve been passionate about making original music for years and this EP marks the start of

a new journey for me. The songs tell the story of some of the most profound experiences I’ve

had over the past few years. I have come from humble beginnings and have worked really

hard at finding my own sound both as a saxophonist and producer. I’ve been able to create

a really dynamic sound with both soaring highs and subtle, tender moments. I can’t wait to

share my music with the world.”
