Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills. 

Joeker’s moniker was developed as a tribute to his parents, Joe and Kerry. After building a career with the United States Marine Corps his former line of work was cut short and after an honorable discharge in 2015 his ambition has turned to his love of hip hop. Growing up in South Side Chicago influenced him tremendously as he would escape the complications in life by listening to 2pac, Biggie Smalls, Eminem and the likes.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song. 

Joeker considers himself an artist of all genres and he branches out to everyone, whether it’s songwriting, producing, beat making, or engineering he doesn’t limit himself. When Joeker first started as a hip hop artist his biggest struggle was trying to find his own sound and not sound like everyone else that is in the saturated industry. The message of the song/video “Changes” is a song full of content, professional quality mixing and mastering, professional quality beats, and a visual that is stunning.

He was able to do so when he began having more creative control over his       sound and work on producing for a while and went to school for things such as music business, music theory, vocal lessons and more. Creating a brand that people can connect with is huge, touring is great way for an indie artist to expand their fan base and also make money        to finance your movement.
