Eglash Creative, owned and operated by Joe Eglash, specializes in producing professional-grade brand and image identity development (logo and print graphic design and web site design) for small-to-medium-sized businesses, independent artists, and publishing companies. We are located in Syracuse, New York.
In addition to Eglash Creative, Joe Eglash (aka Joel N. Eglash) created oySongs.com, the leading online source for Jewish music (audio and sheet music downloads). It was sold in 2012. Formerly Managing Director of Transcontinental Music Publications and URJ Press, music/book publishing divisions of the Union for Reform Judaism, he has hundreds of publications to his credit. In 2015, he returned to Transcontinental Music as its first director under American Conference of Cantors ownership. Under Joe's leadership, the first Jewish music licensing agency, JLicense, was created, and was launched in 2017.
As editor and contributor to some of the most popular and widely-used publications, songbooks, and anthologies in the Jewish world, his name is synonymous with quality and excellence. Independent musical artists, small businesses, and publishers know Joe as a jack-of-all-trades designer, consultant, compositor, engraver, and publisher. He is a recognized authority in the Jewish music industry, and is a consultant of musical repertoire, licensing, marketing, and building congregational instrumental ensembles. His popular T'filah Band songbook series, containing arrangements of liturgical music for synagogue band and choir, was published by Tara Publications.
Raised in a family of folk music enthusiasts in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Joe studied the guitar and saxophone. Before earning his B.A. in Judaic Studies from Brooklyn College, he studied classical guitar with Jeffrey Van at the University of Minnesota, where he formed a band, The Flood.
For years, The Flood toured large college and community venues to capacity crowds, earning a substantial following. They released three popular albums of original music.
Build a Fire, Joe's debut solo recording, was released in 2009, and his sophomore follow-up, So Wired, in 2011. Three, released in 2013, marked a leap forward in recording and songwriting. Transitions (2016), his fourth solo album, has the feel of a classic double vinyl album: Frequent style changes interplay with nods to familiar influences. He plays every instrument, sings, records, and writes the entirety of his solo efforts.
In addition to the Eglash Creative blog, Joe writes a food blog ( What You're Not Eating ).
Joe is active as a guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, bandleader, arranger, and composer in Syracuse, New York, where he resides with his wife and kids. He is a member of ASCAP and GTM.
