In a Pinch
Joel Stanton writes and produces electronic pop music in Seattle. His latest release, Luck, confronts the creative hustle from the role of provider. Luck was mixed and mastered by Micah Smith (Perfect Families, Beakr).
When he's not writing and performing as lead singer for dream-pop outfit Perfect Families, Joel spends his downtime exploring the digital landscape of synth and drum modules. Over three years and dozens of bedroom demos Joel honed in on a sound that balances dreamy vocals, drowsy synth layers, and down-tempo rhythms. His vocal-forward approach is an ode to the pop music tradition that has inspired him since day one.
Joel draws much of his electronic influence from contemporaries like Little Dragon and Blood Orange, while a fondness for Paul Simon and Hall and Oates linger in his singer-songwriter subconscious.
