Los Angeles musician, Joel Stanton, writes and produces synth-driven indie pop songs. When he's not writing and performing as lead singer of psych-pop outfit Perfect Families, Joel spends his downtime exploring the digital landscape of synth and drum modules. Over a few years and dozens of bedroom demos, Joel has honed in on a sound that balances dreamy vocals, drowsy synth layers, and down-tempo rhythms.

Joel draws much of his influence from contemporaries in the new wave, R&B, and chillwave arenas, while a fondness for Paul Simon and Hall and Oates linger in his singer-songwriter subconscious. His vocal-forward approach is an ode to the pop music tradition that has inspired him since day one.
