Joe Wamsley, a Fort Lee resident, expresses his faith through the lyrics of his song and creates music to inspire and encourage. His favorite verse, Corinthians 2:9, "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him." really summarizes his journey ever since he allowed his life to be used by the Lord.
He got started with music as a bass player in a family band about twenty years ago. He would play at some local clubs in the area and he did this for about eight years.
Since then he has written many songs and has been blessed with many opportunities to perform with some of his Christian musician friends in the tri-state area, at coffee houses, Churches, Christian Overcomer's events, Ocean Grove Gospel music ministries.
He's the lead worship at the First Reformed Church of the Palisades in Fort Lee NJ for the past 17 years. To learn more, go to JoeWamsley.com
