Joel Svenfelt

My name is Joel Svenfelt and I’m a freelance musician, guitarist and guitarinstructor currently based in Jakobstad (Finland).


About me


I started out playing guitar when I was nine years old. My interest for music grew stronger during elementary, middle and high school, which naturally led to me applying to Novia UAS in Pietarsaari, to study music. From which I graduated with a BA in Culture and arts within the degree programme in music (Educator).


I’ve had opportunities to play at several different concerts alongside artists such as Nils Landgren, Chris Kläfford, Jan Johansen, Samuel Ljungblahd, Krista Siegfrids and Osmo Ikonen, to name a few. 


My playing is mainly based on american blues/soul/pop/acoustic music. Artists who have inspired me and who I look up to are; John Mayer, Tommy Emmanuel, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Steve Lukather, Cory Wong, etc. Throughout the years I’ve widend my skills which is why I’m more than happy to play most genres out there.



You can book me as a musician for a variety of different projects such as a cooperating musician for artists, choirs and theatres. I play acoustic-, country-, rock-, blues-, jazz-, funk-, RnB/soul-, and popmusic

I offer music entertainment in a variety of evironments such as; restaurants, weddings and other events. I can perform with a duo, trio or a full band.  

You can hire me as a session musician for studio recordings. You can also order guitar tracks to your studioproject, both electric guitars and acoustic guitars.
