Born and bred in Auckland, New Zealand, Joel Kanji was a finalist at various New Zealand song-writing competitions, and knew from a young age that he had a knack for song writing. A compliment on his song writing from renowned international Artist Kimbra further endorsed his desire to write and perform music.

During Joel’s final Schooling years a series of medical conditions threatened Joel’s ability to pursue music, however after overcoming these battles Joel was more fuelled than ever to write and release positive music. Having been greatly influenced and inspired by faith filled Artists such as Switchfoot, Relient K, and Owl City, Joel Kanji is set to use his own story and faith to help and encourage others through this crazy journey of life!

2019 saw Joel’s first round of single releases including the single ‘Turn Around’, an up-beat feel-good summer pop anthem with a tinge of pop-rock. With the next round of releases soon to come Joel’s story will continue to unfold!
