Hari Newmark grew up with Joey Fennel. They went to Woodland Junior High and Fayetteville High School together. He was there when "Joey" became "Joseph," a step toward "breaking away from being a kid to becoming a man," Newmark says. And he remembers when Fennel's stage name became "Joseph Israel," a reflection of both his music and his spirituality.
