Hi. My name is Joel Willson.
I’m a composer, songwriter, and violinist based in New Orleans, LA. I write vulnerable, whole-hearted songs and compose music for film and media.
This is my Arts Manifesto
Art is Spiritual:
I believe that God is creative and as creatures designed by a spark of the divine we are called to create art.
Art is Entrepreneurial:
I believe that musicians and artists should act entrepreneurially and create self-sustaining business models that break the stereotype of the starving artist.
Art is Serving:
I believe art is not merely self-expression, but exists for the purpose of serving others.
Art is Community:
I believe art is communal and artists are called to be leaders that shape cities, spread love, and create connections that break down barriers.
