"This man is country to the bone", declares Destiny Now president Bret Walton. Of course, he is speaking about none other than Christian Country artist Joel Lance. "He just bares his soul when he sings and there's just no way that it's not going to move you." That seems to be a sentiment shared by many, including fellow artists.
"He reminds me of Vern Gosdin, and yet he sounds unique", muses Tim Stout of God's Country Band. He continues, "Joel is real country like we are."
While Joel takes all this critical acclaim in stride, he continues to raise the bar for himself again and again. With his first two CD's behind him, Joel decided to once again exceed his prior accomplishments. His third project contains ten original songs written by none other than Mr. Joel Lance. While Joel sincerely downplays his songwriting abilities, the truth of the matter is that he has written some great songs. Christian Country Music will definitely be affected by this man.
As if writing and recording ten original songs for his third project wasn't enough, Joel Lance is now a presence on the internet. Yes, the official Joel Lance website is now up and running complete with audio samples of his entire discography, photos, news and events, and even a guest book. Designed by Destiny Now's very own Bret Walton, the feedback has been extremely positive.
While some artists rest on their laurels, Joel keeps pushing himself and is always rewarded for his efforts. Never one to be defined by what others are doing, Mr. Lance blazes his own trail into the future of Christian Country music. No doubt, it's a path others will follow for generations to come.
