Joel Jasper has been writing music and playing shows in various projects since a teenager. In high school, he teamed up with drummer Zach Mabry to form the gum-drop math-rock band Forest of Tongue. They released the Bacon & Eggs EP and the album Body Pains (self recorded and mixed by Joel). Joel also recorded a less-math-more-pop project dubbed Gorgeous and released the Gold EP. Soon after, Joel started working on a new set of solo songs with a new sound. With a beat machine and a loop pedal, he created his own beats and bass lines and began writing the dreamy pop songs that would become the Summer-Body 7” released on Porch Party Records in September 2013. In 2014, Joel followed up his 7" with 2 digital releases- Winter-Body and Home-Body.

In the summer of 2014, Forest of Tongue began practicing together again, and ended up writing a new album. In August 2015, Porch Party Records released their cassette Fancy Itch:

"sounds a lot like Deerhoof and the Muppets band ate marzipan intestines soaked in PCP, and an hour later reduced themselves to a pile of blood, splinters of resonant wood, and polyester fur." -Tiny Mix Tapes

While playing shows with Forest of Tongue and several other projects, Joel kept writing songs of his own. In Spring 2017, Joel will release his appropriately titled fourth 3-song EP titled Spring-Body.

Joel also performs/tours with Nico Yaryan and Rufrano.
