Elle Magazine interview

24 Nov, 2010

Joel gives interview to Elle about what inspired her to write her single Notice Me.

I had a crush on this guy who was in my band (musician Cass Dillon), and there was a lot of tension. He was afraid to “go there” because of work, and I was getting frustrated, and that dynamic inspired Notice Me. He was my date at the premiere of my father’s movie (the documentary Last Play at Shea). I remember I was huddling in the corner of the after-party, and I just started to write it.
