Beaumont singer makes his way in industry

Posted: Updated:

The stage lights are turning up for a Beaumont man making his name known in the world of country music.

David Joel has just signed with Bou Boy'z Entertainment and is now recording his first album.

Joel got his start at an early age. He was given his first guitar when he was just 9-years-old.

"I started learning just several little cords and by the time I was 12 or 13, I was playing full songs," he says.

He followed his parents footsteps. His mother sang in church and his father played guitar.

When he hit middle school, Joel's love for music grew.

As he grew older, his musical career took off; entertaining crowds to rockin' country music.

"My show is a high energy show and the song selection and the message is about the groove," he says.

His talents caught the eye of world renown songwriter Randy Boudreaux who is known for writing hit singles such as "Alibis" by Tracy Lawrence.

"One night, I was about to leave Nashville, about to give up and my wife said 'You know you need to get down on your knees and say a little prayer. Maybe God will give you something good' and that's the night I wrote "Alibis", says Boudreaux.

Boudreaux signed Joel to the label Bou Boy'z Entertainment and will be sitting side by side with Joel who has been in the studio recording his first record.
