"We Are Famous For Not Being Famous" (Kathy Fisher quote 2009)
Kathy Fisher and Ron Wasserman formed Fisher in 1998 when they received their first break with a cut on the soundtrack for Great Expectations. After that they were offered a few Lilith Fair shows and discovered they had a fan base. They decided to release their first CD "One" the following year.
The mp3 craze was just starting and Ron uploaded a few tracks to mp3.com. Within a few weeks they were getting 18,000 downloads a day. This caught the attention of Time Magazine and CNN which caught the attention of Doug Morris at Universal Music. The band signed a deal with UMG on Christmas eve 1999.
In November 2000 "True North" was released and their song "I Will Love You" hit #1 at 40 major top 40 stations. The wild ride had begun but sadly there were distribution problems and so after getting a taste of life on a major label Fisher left UMG in 2001.
Luckily the project was going strong, so Fisher released their 2nd double CD "Uppers and Downers" in 2002. As before with their 1st release (One), several songs from U&D were licensed for commercials, Movies (How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days) and other projects.
In 2005 Fisher released "The Lovely Years" on IRIS Records. Again many of the tracks were licensed for TV and movies.
In late 2008 TLC network used "Beautiful Life" for their Monday night promos. Immediately the emails starting pouring in and over 900,000 new people came to Fisher's MySpace site alone.
The success of TLC and a resurgence of interest in Fisher caused Ron Wasserman to start writing the band's next release. Now 6 months later "Water" is ready.
The new CD covers exactly two years of Kathy and Ron's life. Love, death, happiness and peace are the experiences they have conveyed in "Water."
