Alexa Ray Joel, daughter of legendary musical artist and pianist Billy Joel, will perform her own original blend of contemporary pop, jazz and blues at Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood, FL, on January 18 at 10:30 p.m. immediately following her father’s concert at Hard Rock Live Sunday night. The performance at Hard Rock Cafe is FREE and open to the public.

Alexa Ray Joel has never been one to ride on anyone’s coattails. Since self-releasing her first EP in 2006, Joel has embraced a DIY ethic and an almost old-fashioned musical aesthetic where everything flows from a well-written song, backed by a pitch-perfect and powerful voice. Without any label support or team of handlers, Alexa writes all of her own music, books her own shows and takes charge of any decisions affecting her career.
