Joell Fender has teamed up with electro/pop producers Elevns for new track Lately.
The song has a 90s retro feel that blends Fender’s voice with Elevns’ soulful synths draped over a sensuous bassline. It sounds a little throwback but contemporary and modern at the same time.

Fender was born in 1990 to Jamaican parents in London. He is a graduate of the BRIT School and his music has been inspired by Earth, Wind and Fire, Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross, Beyonce and Boyz II Men.

I give everything and it makes them (audience) fearless and confident enough to get up and dance no matter who’s watching I want this to continue, especially with my own music. I wanna show people when you do you, you get the best results”.
