Acoustic Rock Song Stylist
“With his treasured guitar bearing earnest timeworn character, Mr. Cage delivers a performance music lovers quest. In true artist form, Joel reverently puts his heart and soul into his music as evidenced with the onset of each song when his eyes close and, devoid of all visual distraction, he transitions from his physical space into a spiritual place - his music. His guitar skills are commanding taking you on a musical journey under constant direction of his soulful rhythm weaving artistic inflections produced only by skill and technique at the hands of time. Keeping intrigue alive, Joel interjects percussive choreography with an impassioned spirit that takes animated form working him into a sweat- an honorable sign of a soulful musician. Whether he’s delivering a raspy quality from deep within or the light-hearted easiness of natural tones, his vocal qualities lend rich substance and meaning to his repertoire of songs in full complement to his genre. Then, as if backing out of his spiritual place, Joel returns to the place he began looking pleased with his journey just taken and rendering his audience rewarded for having traveled along with him. A sound musician and entertainer in his own right, he’s a “must see”. Elise Saad
You can’t compare Joel Cage to any other player – he stands alone. He inspires amazement. His command over his guitar is incredible – he’s an original – completely subsumed by the instrument..
When you go see Joel Cage play in a restaurant or tavern, you want to watch him as if you were at a concert .. When you do this, the hustle and bustle of the establishment doing business disappears, and you get a better view of the place from which he plays. It’s a whole different environment .. and while Joel would insist that it’s a lateral move, you can’t help but get a feeling of transcendence..
