Joel James – ‘Adorn Above’ Single

JOEL JAMES to release ‘Adorn Above’ single

on January 19th.

Joel James makes a statement in new single Adorn Above telling the industry, he is here to stay.


Adorn Above is a battlecry in the form of a rock orchestral sound. Joel James lands his delicate poetry in between the whaling sounds of triumph. The track illustrates rejection being a societal norm but shows the urge to keep fighting, while having an endless desire to come out on top.

“‘Been torn apart a thousand times, but now there’s more of me to see’ – When I wrote that line, the song made sense. It’s such a bad ass statement, so much attitude. I believe that anyone who is used to rejection, no matter the industry they are in, will live and breath those lyrics” – Joel James

Adorn Above is exactly what it sounds like, a battlecry. It’s about a certain breaking point, having a whole industry crush you, losing everything to an unfair advantage. The song highlights the burning desire to bounce back head first and straight into the deep end without hesitation. Rejection becoming the norm, and success becoming our meaning to lif

The song was written, recorded, produced and mastered in Joel’s childhood bedroom by himself. That’s how all his releases are created.

In 2016 Joel James released debut EP I’m a Fool opening with hit Still Around, generating buzz on Australia’s Hit Network and creating waves in the Gold Coast reaching number 8 on the 102.9 Hot Tomato Playlist.

While Joel is laying the foundations of what looks like a solid career, he continues to raise the bar with every release, always experimenting with new colours of music and building the world he dreams of.

Best said by 102.9 Hot Tomato radio host ‘Scoot’, his sound lies some point between Imagine Dragons and Twenty One Pilots, but, with a little flavour of himself to make the difference.

When Joel is not making music, he… well… he is always making music.


For Fans Of: Imagine Dragons | Twenty One Pilots

‘Adorn Above’ will be in Digital Stores on the 19th of January.
