About Me

Joseph Vella has spent the past three decades as a forward thinking force in the digital music space specialized on content development, marketing strategies, audio and video production, podcasting, and social media branding. He ventured into the digital world in 1991 with the creation of Jazz Online, one of the internet’s earliest music sites and the first targeting the jazz audience. With this groundbreaking enterprise, Vella formed his company, Vella Interactive, and he was called upon to advise a wide range of record companies and high profile musical artists to develop their earliest online properties, content and marketing strategies. Today, he continues to evolve his practice in the digital frontier producing a variety of websites, social branding campaigns, online radio programming and video content, podcast series including the trend setting works The Beach Boys (Pet Sounds), John Coltrane (The Traneumentary), the Miles Davis Podcast, Pat Metheny (About The Music), Motown 50, Stephen Sondheim (The Story So Far), and Yo-Yo Ma (An Intimate Tour Through the Music). Vella also teaches master classes at NYU focused on digital content production and marketing.

My Jazz Story

I love jazz because it represents a way of life (an attitude) and transcends one specific music style within the genre.
