You’d be forgiven if you’ve never heard of Joel Adams.

The 19 year old from Brisbane is a virtual unknown in Australia, but he’s been slogging it out worldwide promoting his debut single “Please Don’t Go”.

Now the song has just hit #34 on Spotify’s USA Chart and is continuing to rise.

Joel appeared on The X Factor in 2012 (the year Samantha Jade won) under the name “Joel Goncalves”, but amazingly he is still signed to an independent recording label.

He’s spending 2016 writing new material in Europe and we can’t wait to hear more from him!
