Jessen Farrell is comprised of teen guitar phenom Lee Jessen and veteran guitar master Robert Farrell. The two originally met as teacher/student in 2010 and wrote their first original song 'Wishing Tree' in 2014. Favourable feedback from their early collaboration lead to more songwriting and the eventual release of their first album 'Lift Me Up.'
