Joe Fessler is an aspiring, indie artist based out of the Twin Cities. He was born in Kansas City, MO, but spent most of his life growing up in Minnesota. Joe showed an early interest in music. As a baby, he used to sit at the piano on his sister's lap while she practiced and tried to follow her hands as they moved across the keys. He picked up the guitar at age 16 and taught himself how to play and sing some of his favorite covers, like "Keep Your Head Up" by Andy Grammar. His natural ear for music soon led to music composition.
Growing up wasn’t always easy – broken home, divorced parents, and all the struggles that go along with being an adolescent - and music became Joe’s outlet to the stress and uncertainty of everyday life. Any moment he could find, he played guitar and piano and sang. Through this daily ritual, he discovered songwriting, as a way of processing his life experiences and expressing them in a poetic way. Each song Joe writes is a unique story – one that is interwoven with his thoughts, beliefs, and reflections on life, relationships, and everything in between.
The most important people in Joe's life are family, friends, and God, and knowing how fragile life can be sometimes, he has learned not to take those he loves for granted. He is the youngest of seven talented kids – 3 brothers and 3 sisters, who are a Marine helicopter pilot, a registered nurse, an amazing mom, an ER Pediatrician, a musician, and an actor. His mom has been his biggest fan and support from the beginning and has pushed him to pursue his dream of spreading his passion for music to the world. Though music is Joe's first love, he also enjoys photography, sports, Italian food, and hanging with friends.
He has just completed his debut album Worth It, a compilation of fresh, new songs about love, hope, truth, and finding happiness and purpose in even the most difficult moments. Currently, Joe is the worship leader at Relevant Church in Plymouth, MN and he has been playing shows at various venues across the Twin Cities and Midwest, building his fan base, and establishing himself as a singer/songwriter.
