Speaking of Michigan…Joe Hertler welcomes you!

Joe Hertler

So looking for a Michigan singer-songwriter who clearly is someone you both want to hang out with and listen to?  Well, for all of you that are not (or are) Michiganites/Michiganers/Mittens, you have the guitar strumming of Joe Hertler to help if you are lacking.

Joe Hertler’s music is why we are here and Joe has the songs that cause you to almost enjoy life (despite what the subject matter might be) and I like it.  I thought of Joe when I posted that Frontier Ruckus piece earlier today (as they are from Michigan and he has shared the stage with them previously).  I do think that the obvious choice right now is a song like “Welcome to Michigan” for it’s appropriateness – and here we go.

“Welcome to Michigan”

So, now you are welcomed, what else is there?  Well there is much more from Joe on his Bandcamp page – notably the fantastic “the Hard Times LP” that can be downloaded for “name your price” (which includes free you cheapies…  just kidding, I love all of you).  So let’s have another taster before you head over for a download of this young talent.  You can’t help but want to sing along, the hook in the chorus is almost bullet proof and I am always a sucker for acoustics that bring harmonica to the party.

“He Was Crushed”

Take a moment to stop by and visit Joe Hertler:

    Hell yeah. Joe Hertler is a mega nice guy who makes sweet music. I’d back him up any day if he needed. For sure take a listen to the tunes and you will not be disappointed.

    The album is great! I saw him play a set with Matt Pond PA a while back. He was just the opener but damn did he tear it up. Super nice guy too with a powerful live set! This kid’s going to blow up in a few years…

    I’ve met him before. we go to the same university, but the last time I saw him play was at Kaya coffee where he held his CD release show. He played with jeff pianki, and jt royster and the place was completely packed. very good show too!
