Many people describe Fiscella's award winning music as inspiring instrumental music from the heart that is both peaceful and passionate, music that fits your life.

Fiscella's music is created for peaceful relaxing, but to also draw listeners in by painting musical portraits and telling stories through beautiful and uplifting music.

His passion is to use his gifts and talents to glorify the Lord, draw others to God, and help create an atmosphere that provides the listener with relaxing meditative music to unwind and relax from the stress of everyday life. Other than writing music, Fiscella's current focus in ministry is with Youth/College students and leading worship.
Musically, Fiscella is often compared to musical greats George Winston, Jim Brickman, Yiruma, and David Nevue. His songs often combine a unique rhythmic sense (particularly his use of rubato) with melodic simplicity and counterpoint. The fusion often produces a particularly delicate sound in the balance between melody and harmony, and rhythmically creates a soft and interesting harmonic feel, especially in his use of 12/8 time signature.
