OBJ - The Band

Formed by four friends in 2022, Once Below Joy is an alternative progressive rock band from the Charlotte, NC area. Austin Collins (lead guitar), Jesse Griesman (guitar/vocals), Skylar Wade (bass), and Wyatt Fregerio (drums/vocals) make up this group of talented musicians.

Their first release, the EP "Through the Fog" is available on all streaming platforms and for purchase online. Smooth guitar licks, clever lyrics, varied melodies, and psychedelic undertones can be heard in these original compositions. Their music aims to give voice to an unspoken part of their generation.


Our EP, Through the Fog, is on BandCamp and streaming services (i.e. Spotify and Apple Music)

Follow us on social media. Any support of our music is appreciated!

We love meeting any fans of music!
