The undisputed “King of Cajun,” Grammy nominated artist, Jo'el Sonnier, was the biggest break-out star of Goldband Records. A true fusion of Cajun French roots, country, rock and other pop influences, Sonnier’s catchy hooks and accordion driven singles earned him praise from industry elites including Dylan, Costello, and Hank Williams Jr. to name a few. Jo'el has had his songs recorded by artist's such as Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, EmmyLou Harris and George Strait among others. Sonnier is still actively recording and playing live to this day.
