“Joe is far too young to be such a good songwriter and performer. Watch him at the festival and you can tell everyone you caught him before he was famous.”– Nick Rheinberger, ABC Illawarra

A rising star in the folk scene – Joe Visser’s lyrics and musical thinking span beyond his years. Definitely one to watch!” – Sivan and Todd Mayhew, The April Maze

“It was a great delight to have Joe Visser perform at the SeeChange Jervis Arts Festival 2018. The Pocket pop-up theatre was the perfect intimate setting to soak up his original songs and the stories they tell. The audience loved every minute.” – Natalie McDonagh, Festival Director
