Hailing from Sydney, soul/funk artist Joel Sena released a jazz meets hip hop nostalgic track dubbed ‘Grindin’ featuring Phoebe Day.
Grindin’ delivers delicious sax drenched soul, fusing different genres together, sprinkled with Phoebe Day’s sultry vocals.
It’s a song about striving and yearning to live a life of meaning and purpose and about taking a risk on something you believe in.
“It’s a song about the struggle we all face when we dare to take that chance and work towards something we’re passionate about. It’s something that a lot of young people struggle with these days,” said Joel.
“Our generation is weary of doing menial, meaningless work – we want to contribute and make a difference,” he said.
Joel is inspired by great jazz artists such as Michael Brecker, Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock as well as great producers like Quincy Jones, Prince and Robert Glasper.
His upcoming EP slated for release later this year, features two of Australia’s most prominent musicians – Mike Pensini (Deni Hines, James Morrison) and Buddy Siolo (Delta Goodrem, Jess Mauboy).
