The Lovely Years

by Fisher

The Lovely Years is a tender pause in a hectic life to express those things we think about but often don't take the time to say. It's a journey into streams of experience, the icy waters as well as the warm, all of which say life. Songs like "Sleepyhead,

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
WHAT'S NEXT AFTER BECOMING TRAILBLAZERS OF THE MUSIC DOWNLOADING REVOLUTION AND THE ROLLERCOASTER OF NOTORIETY THAT FOLLOWS?

IF YOU'RE FISHER, YOU TURN REAL LIFE INTO A REVEALING LOVE POEM TO THE WORLD


"THE LOVELY YEARS" ON BEN TAYLOR'S IRIS RECORDS DROPS APRIL 26 WITH HEART

NEW YORK, NY- March 15- As early explorers of the MP3.com landscape, Fisher became the 1st band signed to a major label deal on the basis of the strength of its musical downloads. They garnered three million downloads of their single "I Will Love You" before most bands figured out there were other ways than brick-and-mortar to reach listeners. With no publicity machine behind them, they built enough buzz on their own to be profiled in Time, Entertainment Weekly, and the Los Angeles Times as vanguards of the digital music revolution -- and be invited to the coveted desk side seat next to Jay Leno after tearing it up on "The Tonight Show." An open invitation to return stands. Fisher's music is also sought after by advertisers looking to tap into the band's melodic punch over genuine lyrics to relate to their consumers. Toyota has been airing "Beautiful Life" incessantly for one of its national campaigns and has received tens of thousands of calls inquiring about the band.

It's a typical day in the Fisher-Wasserman home, the principals behind alternapop group Fisher. Kathy and Ron are simultaneously caring for their year old son, Aron, writing, doing business, completing commercial assignments and working on new music for a children's show. Snow covers the ground beneath stands of pinion pines and redwood trees that circle them for nearly seventy miles at the foot of the looming Mt. Pinos. It is within this pristine and stunning setting that the harried and sometimes messy life of Fisher unfolds. Yet for all of the unpredictable twists and turns of juggling a family with dual musical careers in the wilderness, poet Kathy Fisher and composer Ron Wasserman, have uncovered the vibrant beauty in the simplicity of living this life and on their new CD The Lovely Years, Fisher captures it with a childlike wonder and a lust for life.

The Lovely Years will be released on Ben Taylor's Iris Records on April 26. The first single is "Beautiful Life." According to Ben, Fisher's music is "Pop redemption at long last".

And while no grass grows under their feet, The Lovely Years is a tender pause in a hectic life to express those things we think about but often don't take the time to say. It's a journey into streams of experience, the icy waters as well as the warm, all of which say life. Songs like "Sleepyhead," inspired by a Sylvia Plath poem "Mad Girls Love Song" flipped to describe the powerful beauty of a 3am meteor shower - "Angels have filled the sky with fiery tails, they flash like cameras in the night, and fall into the grass to live again, as they turn into fire flies"; "Surrender," written when Ron's father was gravely ill - "Only thing you will regret is what you do not do at all - even more than the stupid things you too, better take the chance..."; and "You," the lovely lullaby written for Aron which closes the album.

Kathy described, "This album reflects Ron and my attempt to look forward in our lives and appreciate what we have now, savor it, and treasure it while also reflecting on the normal day to day issues."

Structure was stifling for child prodigies, Ron and Kathy. The precocious pair had their visions and talents carved out at a ripe age. Ron, a native Californian, began to toy with the piano at the age of 3, by 4 was creating his own piano lessons, and at 5 1/2 had his very own finger exercises published in music books. Ron's immense fascination with fantasy and animation would later lead to a string of successful compositions ranging from the uber popular Mighty Morphin Power Rangers theme song to the music for the classic animated comic, "X-Men". Meanwhile in West Virginia...a poet was born, Kathleen Fisher. An award-winning scribe by grade 5, this proverbial adolescent reveled in her uniqueness and edgy sensibilities from the get-go. As a student, Kathy once turned in a paper on how structure killed art; as a mother she now sensibly will proclaim that poetry is about moving the story forward. From the early years to the lovely years, this dynamic duo will continue to balance left-of-center with accessibility, creating a steadiness all their own.

For Fisher, it's all in the small details and with The Lovely Years, Fisher offers a glimpse into one small life while extending a love poem to the world.

Loved it!
Drawn here by the song from the Toyota Ad and loved the rest of the CD. Looking to get some of their others now. CD-baby makes that easy...

Tamara Turner, CD Baby


These are the breed of songs that seem to know you better than you know yourself- that hook into some aspect of your personality tucked away in the shadows, bringing out these threads of cleverness, possibility and optimism. These are the kind of full-bodied pop songs that put you in those zones where seven wonderful minutes later, you wonder how you got where you are. Fisher locks in eleven tracks of magically subversive but outright catchy pop songs, drawing from a palette similiar in color to that of Tori Amos and Sarah MacLachlan. Smart, rich, brisk and distinct from beginning to end, "The Lovely Years" will haunt you in moments of silence, leaving an imprint that is reluctant to fade.

This is what I think...
This CD is awesome, quite a unique sound, a CD that we (my finacee' and I) will have it in our collection. We are making our own CD for our wedding, "I will love you" will be on there!

Roon

Never disappoints
I happily purchase Fisher albums knowing I will never be disappointed. Beautiful vocals, catchy lyrics and amazing arrangements. A great bonus for your collection.

Leah Crist

Totally Cool
The different rhythms and beats on the album were awesome! I really enjoyed the first track, Beautiful Day. Surrender is a favorite as well. I look forward to purchasing more of this artist. So talented!

Cathy had two babies!
It's a beautiful CD about babies, certainly not what most singers sing about, even female singers. Yet even just hearing the music a mother's joy comes through in a simple, and poignant way.

As I said to Kathy Fisher herself: "Thank you for your beautiful music. I didn't know that babies could have this effect, but I guess someone had two babies instead of one."

Scott

Love it and have been telling others about Fisher
The Early Years is fun and entertaining. I love music that lifts me up and sounds great in the truck. Kathy's voice is F.I.N.E. and the music is very unique. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Loved it... must listen
Definately one of the best i've ever bought...i must admit i didnt like the version of so much on this one. i've heard a better one, but nevermind =) Fisher are absolutely gorgous and i'd love to get their other albums

gru

wow wow wow and did i say wow?
not a bad song in the bunch, i like this much better than "one" to be honest. kathy's vocals are indescribably delish.

ps -- anyone who lives under a rock and hasn't downloaded the band's earlier "l will love you" needs to do so NOW - it is one of the most moving love songs i have ever heard.
