Life and CareerEdit
In 1995, at the age of 16, Joel Madden, his brother Benji, and a friend started their own band. The band was short-lived and the Maddens eventually recruited fellow high schoolers Billy Martin, Paul Thomas and Aaron Escolopio to form their current band Good Charlotte. They took the name Good Charlotte from a children's book.
On November 23, 2011, Madden was confirmed as one of the four vocal coaches in the first season of the Australian version of the reality singing competition The Voice. His brother, Benji Madden was later his mentor on the show. Joel continued on as a coach in season 2. Because of his commitments to The Voice Australia, he relocated to Sydney, Australia.
