SIRIUSXM is launching The BILLY JOEL Channel on WEDNESDAY, MARCH 26th at 6p ET and will run through June 25th via satellite on channel 4. The BILLY JOEL Channel will also be available online and through the SIRIUSXM Internet Radio App.
The BILLY JOEL Channel will feature music spanning the singer/songwriter's 50-year career: from his earliest work with The Echoes in 1964, to his solo debut Cold Spring Harbor from 1971, through his upcoming release, A Matter of Trust: The Bridge to RUSSIA. The Channel will also feature 40 years of archival interviews, including excerpts from his "Masters Class" sessions that he conducts periodically to music students around the world, as well as rarities from the vaults, previously unavailable studio tracks and live performances captured in his earliest days as a performer.
"BILLY JOEL is one of the most beloved musicians of the past five decades whose music and cultural initiatives remain relevant to fans of every age," SIRIUSXM Pres./Chief Content Officer SCOTT GREENSTEIN said. "Our channel celebrating the legendary Piano Man will offer listeners a truly comprehensive and deep dive into the music of one of today's most important musicians."
