The Fuss Des Moines, IA


The Fuss

The Fuss is a DIY Indie-Rock group from Des Moines, Iowa (est. 2015). Combining guitar-centric elements of ‘60s

garage-rock, poignant lyricism and buoyant vocal melodies, they’ve crafted an engaging and energetic live set with a

sound that’s been described as “sonically adventurous*” and “severely catchy**”. Beginning as the solo project of

songwriter Joey Lyons, The Fuss now features Matt Nelson, Ben Waldschmitt, and has been dubbed “one of Des Moines’

best young bands***” by the Iowa State Daily. They have released two self-produced EP’s to date, as well as their first full-

length, self-produced album. The band has received numerous noteworthy acknowledgments from local organizations

such as the Des Moines Music Coalition1

, and the Iowa Music Project2

. The band has quickly built a loyal local following and

has completed its first Midwest tour in support of their latest record, Self-Titled, which was released on July 1st, 2017. *(Ben
