New single LEFT BEHIND out now


Singer/songwriter Joe Visser first appeared on the Australian music scene as a starry-eyed kid. He grew up playing local venues in his coastal home town, and supporting the likes of Sally SeltmannBobby Alu

This Way NorthThe Bean Project and others.


As Joe moved on and began playing shows further from home, his sound continued to develop. Drawing on references from Leon Bridges to Julia Jacklin and beyond, Joe’s sound has matured into a strong individual voice.


Blending classic folk sounds with the nuances of contemporary indie music, Joe continues to broaden his horizons, and draw inspiration from wherever it may come.


His first EP, a limited edition, CD-only release featured a handful of original songs and was released in December of 2017. ‘Playing With Fire’ from that EP was shortlisted in the 2017 ACMF National Songwriting Awards.


Joe’s follow-up single, a one-off release titled ‘Freakshow Carnival’ incorporates the sounds of his coastal upbringing, resulting in a breezy time capsule of teenage years spent on the South Coast of NSW. ‘Freakshow Carnival’ was shortlisted for the 2019 ACMF National Songwriting Awards.


Joe Visser is now based in Sydney, and his new single ‘Left Behind‘ is out now, with more announcements to come.
