ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Fishergreen's Music flows from Soul, Country and Rock n’ Roll with influences from Sly Stone, The Band, Doug Sahm, Mad Dogs and Englishmen, and James Brown.

History of the Band:

Heath Green and Chad Fisher met a few years ago playing gigs around Birmingham. They started playing together in places like Bailey’s and The Nick. These shows were never rehearsed and featured a rotating cast of musicians. The results were often very raw and always had great energy. Green and Fisher started FisherGreen out of a desire to refine this sound, form a steady working band and focus on writing new material.

Dream musical career:

“To play the music we want to play for people that want to hear it, and hopefully make a decent living doing it.”

Where you can hear them play:

Fisher has played as a sideman for many acts, such as The Temptations, Gregg Allman and Jason Isbell. Green is one of the most in-demand musicians in Birmingham and is regarded as one of the most soulful singers in Alabama. FisherGreen’s debut record is forthcoming with CD release show in September 2012. The album was recorded at Ol Elegante Studio and produced by Les Nuby and FisherGreen.

The band is known for energetic late-night sets and is often called upon to to play during late hours, most notably locally at the Secret Stages and BAAM festivals.

Band Interests:

Playing good music for good people.

The Players:

Chad Fisher (Vocals, Trombone
Heath Green (Vocals, Guitar, Keys)
Jason Lucia (Drums, Percussion)
Allen Stone (Guitar, Background Vocals)
Brian Cooper (Bass)
Rob Alley (Trumpet)
Brad Guin (Tenor Saxophone)
Les Nuby (Background Vocals)

This Debut Record "Keep It Together" has long been a labor of love for the band. Every member of Fishergreen has been playing music in one way or another for years, and loving every second of it. Because of this combined experience, it can be really special when they come together as a whole.

Keep It Together

1. "Tearin’ down my soul"

Well They're tearin’ down my soul lord
They're tearin’ down my soul
They're tearin’ down my soul lord
So Jesus don't wait on me

They're tearin’ down my soul lord
They're tearin’ down my soul
They're tearin’ down my soul lord
So Jesus don’t wait on me

I can't take the lies they tell themselves their children and their wives
And they all believe
It wasn't that long ago they all sold their souls
For their own false beliefs
How naive

They're tearin’ down my soul lord (Tearin’ down my soul)
Tearin’ down my soul (Tearin’ Tearin’)
Tearin’ down my soul lord(tearin down my soul)
Jesus don't wait on me

They're tearin’ down my soul lord(tearin’ down my soul)
Tearin’ down my soul(Tearin’ Tearin’)
Tearin’ down my soul lord
So Jesus don't wait on me

Like fat little rats that dig around in the trash
Eatin’ up their own dignity
They'll buy and sell just about anything
Just as long as it feeds their own greed
That's so obscene

Tell me now brother have you forgotten how love and act around one another
Well if push comes to shove and you've forgotten how to love
There'll blood in the streets
but it won't come from me

They're tearin’ down my soul lord(Tearin’ down my soul)
Tearin’ down my soul(Tearin’ tearin’)
Tearin’ down my soul lord
So Jesus don't wait on me

They're tearin’ down my soul lord(tearin’ down my soul)
Tearin’ down my soul(Tearin’ tearin’)
Tearin’ down my soul lord
so Jesus don't wait on me

2. "Leave it at the Door"

You walk right in
Slid a drink in your hand
Had the same stupid grin pasted right across your face

They all diggin on you
And you love it too
So you strut around like you think you own the place

Cute little tease
So confidently
You make your way up to the front of the stage

Cause you got a thing
For the boys who sing
They can make you scream but they can't remember your name

So leave it at the door Baby

We start to play
You Start to move
But everything you do well it's is all in vain

Cause we know you're out
Just sniffing around
Looking for somethin or someone to take away the pain

Cause the truth of it is
When you were a kid
Your daddy never loved you at least he never said he did
and that's a shame

You made it definitely clear
Why you're here
You think one of us gonna come and take his place

So leave it at the door Baby

Lost scared and so confused
Every night you out tryin to prove to yourself
That you were made for me and i was made for you
But i said it before and i'll say it again you can come on in
But leave at the door For me

Lost scared and so confused
Night after night you come round tryin to prove to yourself
You were made for me and i was made for your
But i told you before an i'll say it again you can come on in
But leave it at the door for me

3. "Flicker"

It's been so long since I've been sane
then I met you on forgotten lane
You know my friends tell me to wait
but if I do it might be too late

And it seems a shame to wait so long
so very long
And it seems a shame to move so slow
so gotta know

That I'm gonna call you
I'm gonna call you

One thought of you, then a smile
Now I can't wait to walk another mile
And that waterfall don't have to fall
if we can just flicker all day lone

And it seems a shame to wait so long
so very long
And it seems a shame to move so slow
so gotta know

That I'm gonna call you
I'm gonna call you

It's okay to flicker
and we don't have to choose
It's okay to flicker
cuz I just want some time with you
I just need some time

Instrumental

It's okay to flicker
and we don't have to choose
It's okay to flicker
cuz I just want some time with you
I just need some time

It's been so long since I've been sane
then I met you on forgotten lane
Though know my friends tell me to wait
but if I do it might be too late

So I'm gonna call you
I'm gonna call you

4. "Free to Play"

I don't wanna watch the news first thing in morning
I don't wanna see the kind of mess we're in today
I can't sing the same ole songs
again, and again, and again
I hope to see you in the springtime
on a sunshine day
We'll go somewhere we have never gone

I don't wanna laugh no more at things I maybe should not
I don't wanna hear the lies we all tell today
I don't wanna watch the time
again, and again, and again
I hope to see you on the morning
we are free to play
We'll go somewhere we have never gone

Maybe to a river to a sandbar in the shade
Maybe to a mountain where we can spend our days
Maybe to a garden where we have found our way
Found our way
and we don't have to leave

I don't wanna drive the roads the always lead to nowhere
I don't want to fly the skies that only go so high
So I will keep a watchful eye
again, and again, and again
I hope to see you on the morning
we are free to play
We'll go somewhere we have never gone

instrumental

Maybe to a river to a sandbar in the shade
Maybe to a mountain where we can spend our days
Maybe to a garden where we have found our way
Found our way
and we don't have to leave

5. "Sick or Well"

Sometimes it's hard to tell
if you're sick or if you're well
You can't find no peace in yourself
with the words you sing

And It ain't easy to believe
in something you can't touch or see
And if it is or will ever come to be
there's a hope that it brings

So you keep on moving
Don't waste no time at all
Keep on groovin'
Gotta believe in your song
Keep it together
or you're left with nothing at all
No love, no song, no soul

Sometimes it all gets you down
Don't give in to the fear or doubt
Gotta get up, get it out, make a sound
cuz you got a song to sing

So you keep on moving
Don't waste no time at all
Keep on groovin'
Gotta believe in your song
Keep it together
or you're left with nothing at all
No love, no song, no soul

guitar

Sometimes it's hard to tell
when you're sick or when you're well
Find that peace in yourself
Sing your song

6. "Sisters Brothers"

Put your hands together
Stomp your feet on the floor
We're gonna try it again like they did before
Open up your mind turn off that radio
Ain't sellin' nothin' here just sharing a little bit of soul

Come on sisters brothers
We owe this to each other
Come on brothers sisters
Sit back let music hit ya

Let me see ya
Let me see ya shake it loose
Don't worry what that fools thinkin next to you
Drop it like it's hot right down on the floor
When you think you've had enough get up and get you some more

Come on sisters brothers
We owe this to each other
Come on brothers sisters
Sit back let that music hit ya

Come on sisters brothers
We owe this to each other
Come on brothers sisters
Sit back let that music hit ya...

7. "The Spins"

Moody asked me who played lead on the Herman Band in '63
It don't matter to me
My drinks are free
And I hope I don't get the spins
I'll be spinning around and round in Galveston

T got up out of his seat he was fueled by rum to move his feet
but that's not for me
I drink for free
And I hope I don't get the spins
I'll be spinning around and round in Galveston

Yeah that record plays through my head
Reminds me of the things we did as I
stagger down the strand
No that two-face life is not for me
The end you know it won't come cheap so I'll
have another round
And I hope I don't get the spins
I'll be spinning around and round in Galveston

Those thoughts of you come back to me, seems to me they'll never leave
No it never ends
or begins
And I hope I don't get the spins
I'll be spinning around and round in Galveston

And I hope I don't get the spins
I'll be spinning around and round in Galveston

No I hope I don't get the spins
I'll be spinning around and round in Galveston

8. "It Was, It Is"

There you stood in the door
Right then and there I was sure to make you mine
You smiled at me And me at you
And I knew all the things i wanted to do to you

Just let me do'em baby
All I ever wanted to do
Was find someone just Like you

You took me home
We were there your hand in mine I got lost in your eyes
On the floor you screamed and scratched you begged for more
And I was happy to oblige you baby

Yes All I ever wanted to do baby
I just, I just just want to let you know thatya
You give it back to me good

And all i ever wanted was you baby
All I ever wanted
Was some one just like you

9. "Tryin' to Get Paid"

You don't know what it means to be alone
Do you know what it means to be down, broke, or broken

All day long while I struggle and strive
You don't even notice
that I am alive
But it don't matter
You don't have me in chains
and you don't think I know how things are gonna change
Are you still thinking about that
same old girl and the old dollar bill

Don't you tell me about the good old days
I'm too busy trying' to get paid
I am ready to bring it on home to me
home to me

Do you even know, do you even know how to listen
Tell me have you ever dreamed a dream for someone else besides yourself

You're always talking about what needs to be
But you're too busy talking
You don't really need
But it don't matter
You don't have me in chains
and you don't think I know how things are gonna change
Are you still thinking about that
same old girl and the old dollar bill

Don't you tell me about the good old days
I'm too busy trying' to get paid
I am ready to bring it on home to me
home to me

Don't you tell me about the good old days
I'm too busy trying' to get paid
I am ready to bring it on home to me
home to me

All day long while I struggle and strive
You don't even notice
that I am alive
But it don't matter
You don't have me in chains
and you don't think I know how things are gonna change
Are you still thinking about that
same old girl and the old dollar bill

Don't you tell me about the good old days
I'm too busy trying' to get paid
I am ready to bring it on home to me
home to me

Don't you tell me about the good old days
I'm too busy trying' to get paid
I am ready to bring it on home to me
home to me
