Troy junior Joe Hertler performs a song Monday in his bedroom studio. Hertler has been singing and playing music since elementary school, where he picked up violin. He now plays more than a dozen instruments. Hertler is working on creating a registered student organization called The Pleasant Town Art Collective, which he hopes will promote local art and culture. "There is not much culture (in Mt. Pleasant)" Hertler said. "(My goal is to) create a cohesive force among the art community". Hertler recently released his first album titled "the Hard Times LP", which can be downloaded from his website www.JoeHertler.com for free or you can name your own price.
