Joel Hanson arrived on the national Christian music scene back in the early 90’s as part of musical trio PFR (Pray For Rain) on Verio Records. Verio was launched that year by mega hit producer, Brown Bannister in partnership with Sparrow Records.

PFR has a fascinating history which we will relate when we feature a song from the band.

Outside of his work with PFR Joel has worked with Phil Keaggy, Geoff Moore and Sara Groves.

Joel Hanson is now a worship leader at Church of the Open Door in Maple Grove, MN.
