This episode’s guest on “Midwest BEAT with Tom Lounges” is S. JOEL NORMAN a gifted Chicagoland singer/songwriter who made Tom Lounges’ annual “Top 10 Regional Albums of the Year” list published in The Northwest Indiana Times for 2012 with his debut release, “TAKE IT IN STRIDE.”
“We are way overdue in having Joel on this show and I’m glad we’ve finally found a date in our respective schedules to make it happen tonight,” said Lounges. “He’ll be live in the studio with his acoustic guitar and new songs from his latest CD ‘TRAVELING LIGHT’ that I will also be hearing for the very first time along with my listeners.”
As for Norman’s music — It’s a soulful, gospel sound tempered with a southern rock growl polished with a hot Chicago brass section and sweet vocal harmony. Norman’s voice reflects The Black Crowes’ Chris Robinson, and his honest, rock and soul music compliments his blue collar roots and disarming sense of humor.
His band is a hand-picked group of some of the finest players from the best groups in Chicago. Tonight on 89.1FM-The Lakeshore, music fans will hear the full band via the new recordings we will spotlight and Norman’s raw talents stripped down in a few special live studio performances.
