With more than 500,000 fans on Facebook and more than 100 million video clicks on YouTube, the singer and songwriter Joel Brandenstein from Düsseldorf/Germany is already a star in the social networks. His first published song “Diese Liebe” reached the 18th chart position in the official German single charts without a label. His second solo song, "Grenzenlos", also was placed in the Top 20.
"Brandenstein touches and moves with his honest way, with his underdog story and the sensitive lyrics." (RP Online) An unmistakable voice, underpinned by handmade songs from his own basement studio: this is how JOEL BRANDENSTEIN started his music career in 2011. With over 550,000 fans on Facebook, 125,000 Instagram followers and a total of over 200 million video views of his music videos on YouTube, the singer-songwriter has long since arrived at the center of the German music scene.
In 2017, JOEL BRANDENSTEIN succeeded with his debut album "Emotionen" in what many artists only dream of: direct entry from 0 to No. 1 in the German album charts. Today, his first work is on the verge of gold status. In his emotional and honest lyrics, the Ratingen native tells stories about failed love, the courage to dream and the multifaceted nature of interpersonal relationships. He addresses everyday things, even things taken from the middle of life, and has sung his way straight into the hearts of his fans.
