Joel Cage is an award winning veteran singer-songwriter and guitarist from Boston who stands alone. You can't compare Cage to any other player. He inspires amazement. His command over his guitar is incredible – an original, completely subsumed by the instrument. Spend the evening with the virtuoso guitarist and impassioned vocalist.

Joel Cage's music is both evocative and raucous. He spans the gamut from sounding like a full rock band to 'hear your own heartbeat' intimacy. He is also a master interpreter of other people's music, spanning a wide field of musical genres, garnering him the oft used moniker "Acoustic Rock Song Stylist".

It has been said that “Joel Cage plays every song he plays exactly the same way: differently.” Each show is a unique performance. “Joel puts on a show you are sure you will never see again. Every time.” (Ray Brady, Dedham Square Coffeehouse)

Cage is a consummate performer. More than one reviewer proclaims “You must see him live!” He has performed at house concerts, churches, coffeehouses, concert venues, fairs, festivals, nightclubs, restaurants – just about everywhere in the minstrel's milieu.

In his 20 years as a soloist, Cage's music has evolved. He says, “Over the years my songwriting has gone from imitating my favorites, to trying to write the ultimate folk song, to timeless rock anthems, to architectural experiments in the science of song structure and stylistic influence, eventually evolving into the discovery of my own voice and point of view; a travelogue of my personal spiritual journey … observations, hypotheses, and conclusions regarding the nature of existence.”

Cage has released five CDs and has appeared at some of the most prestigious folk and acoustic venues and festivals in the country, including the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas where he was awarded top prize in the Kerrville New Folk Competition. Among his many accolades: the top prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, three-time winner of the USA Songwriter's Competition, and multiple nominations for the Boston Music Awards.
