Confessions in Verse
Released 2003



Joseph Messing is a singer songwriter living in Chicago, Illinois. Though a musician his entire life, he first began performing his own writing in Chicago in 2001. At that time he developed a very strong following and performed throughout the city leading up to the release of his self-produced CD, Confessions in Verse. After the release of his CD in 2003, he was joined by Dan Huber, a classically trained bassist playing both upright bass and electric bass. The pair went on to perform with several different variations of band members over a two year period, and after a long hiatus, have now settled on their bread and butter, the personal connection of the singer/songwriter format. The music is primarily written by Joseph Messing and covers a wide range of both musical genres and topics. Messing's strengths lie in strong, emotive vocals and identifiable lyrics. Huber compliments this presence with a grace and flexibility which truly show his talent. The changes the pair have endured bring a fresh depth and meaning to their latest music, showing that the duo has only begun to show their capabilities.
