Joel Hoekstra is one of the most sought after guitarists in the music industry, constantly lending his skills to session work, as well as being a member of Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Whitesnake, and others. Joel is currently part of a supergroup called Iconic, with Stryper‘s Michael Sweet, and they are about to release an album called Second Skin on June 17th, 2022 on Frontiers Records.
Hear about the ins-and-outs of Second Skin — how it was written, assembled, and produced. Joel also discusses bassist Tanya O’Callaghan and singer Dino Jelusick, the latest additions to the Whitesnake lineup. You’ll also hear this hard-working musician talk about being productive and moving forward, if he ever thought about going to “Plan B,” and what it takes to be a touring musician while having a family.
