Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Joachim Cooder is one of America's dedicated musical pioneers.

"I grew up in a household very much alive with Irish music. My dad Ry Cooder, collaborated with Paddy Maloney and the Chieftains, so I experienced that sound up close and let it sink in and influence me as a player and songwriter. One of the last times I saw Paddy we mentioned my dad's people were the O'Learys and he said, "the O'Learys are from Cork, so this trip is a bit of a pilgrimage to find my Cork O'Learys! Come on down!"

Joachim Cooder performed on now-legendary recordings with his father Ry Cooder like the landmark Buena Vista Social Club sessions. He has played with Ali Farka Touré, who inspired Cooder to take up the mbira.

'Dreamer's Motel' (2024) builds on the success of 'Over That Road I'm Bound' (2020 Nonesuch Records) and features Ry Cooder, Rayna Gellert, Juliette Commagere, Sam Gendel, Glenn Patscha, Amir Yaghmai, Dan Gellert, and Vieux Farka Touré.

Uncut calls the album "..warm, uplifting and quietly spectacular" . Mojo said, 'there's a reassuringly Cooderesque familiarity to it. Perfect late-night listening accompanied by a tumbler of something strong." BBC Radio 2's Mark Radcliffe said it was "one of the most intriguing releases we've heard this year."
