About me

Since moving to the North East, Joe Steels continues to establish himself as an exciting guitarist on the jazz scene. He plays with a deep consideration of the tradition, mixed with innovation and a strong melodic sense. He draws inspiration from Grant Green, John Scofield, and British guitarist Mike Walker, among others.

Joe has performed across the UK with British jazz greats such as Arnie Somogyi, Ross Stanley, and Andy Panayi. He has performed at the ‘Love Supreme’, Newcastle Jazz Festival, and many other venues. Joe currently leads his own project Borealis, releasing their debut album in May ‘23, and touring in the summer.
