“Top 10 Nashville Band To Add To Your Playlist”


Arts Fishing Club draws on their folk roots and infuses it with modern pop…the infectious rhythms will drag you out onto the dancefloor and have you singing along.
— PopDust
Arts Fishing Club bring a fresh, modern approach to the Americana sound — not to mention, near-boundless energy.
— The Boot


The name 'Arts Fishing Club' is an homage to frontman Christopher Kessenich’s grandfathers (Colonel Arthur Kessenich and Arthur Schmidt) and serves as reminder to approach music in the same way the Arts taught to fish: go out every day with the sincerest intention for success, casting out again and again despite the inevitable empty-handed reels. A successful day of fishing is not determined by what you end up with at but rather the beauty of engaging in the activity with people you love. Fishing, music, and life are about the adventure that they take you on and the people you get to share it with.

Christopher Kessenich’s voice is where young people go to retire.
— Adriana Zzarza, APCA
Part rock, part folk, part soul and ALL ENERGY.
