Joel Hoekstra (Whitesnake, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Revolution Saints) has announced the
upcoming third release from his solo project Joel Hoekstra's 13, "Crash Of Life". "Crash Of
Life" introduces a new vocal talent into the fold as Girish Pradhan (Girish And The Chronicles,
The End Machine) takes on lead vocal duties on the album. As with the previous two albums,
the all-star cast of bassist Tony Franklin (Blue Murder, The Firm), drummer Vinny Appice
(Last In Line, ex-Dio, Black Sabbath), and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Sons Of Apollo, Black
Country Communion) contribute their immense musical talents. And as he did on the last
record, vocalist Jeff Scott Soto also lends a helping hand with background vocals.
Hoekstra once again handled the bulk of the creative process, overseeing production,
songwriting, and arranging (music and lyrics) for this stunning hard rock record. Chris Collier
returns and does a masterful job mixing and mastering here as well.
New York City based guitarist Joel Hoekstra currently plays for Whitesnake and Trans
Siberian Orchestra. He is also a member of Revolution Saints with Deen Castronovo
(Journey) and Jeff Pilson (Foreigner, The End Machine, ex-Dokken) and Iconic with Michael
Sweet (Stryper), Nathan James (Inglorious), Marco Mendoza (ex-Journey, The Dead Daisies),
and Tommy Aldridge (Whitesnake, ex-Ozzy Osbourne). Additionally, Joel is also well-known
for his work with Cher, Night Ranger, the Broadway show Rock of Ages, his fill in work with
Foreigner, annual sets on the Monsters of Rock Cruise, recording projects like VHF and his
acoustic shows with Brandon Gibbs. He is also a frequent columnist for Guitar World
Magazine. In recent years, Joel released the critically acclaimed albums "Dying to Live" and
"Running Games" from his side project Joel Hoekstra's 13. He has also released three
instrumental solo albums.
