ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ian Fisher is a touring singer/songwriter with his roots in Mid-Western America.
From an early age he was interested in music, but it wasn't till he picked up a bass guitar and started singing at the age of 13 that his once mere interest was transformed into his life and passion. He soon switched to electric guitar and started a band with some grade school friends in his hometown of Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. From very early on Ian started writing his own songs. Though the band would perform some of his songs, Ian began to take his work more seriously after it broke up when he was 17. In 2006, he began recording his first "professional" album, Invasions, and half of his first album with a band, Stained Glass. In the mean time he played dozens of shows around Missouri and wrote many new songs. As he grew older and became more interested in his studies of Political Science, the subject matter of most of his songs moved from love and emotions to political and social issues. In the summer of 2008 he went on a nation wide tour with the very politically-minded band called Holy!Holy!Holy!, finished recording the album Stained Glass, and recorded his second acoustic album, Pawn Heart. That fall he moved to Europe and began playing shows all over Austria and Germany, often supporting or joining some of the most popular Austrian independent bands, such as A Life, A Song, A Cigarette and Bernhard Eder. In the spring of 2009 he finally released Stained Glass. Before the release of Stained Glass he already started work on his fourth album, Vienna You White Moon, which was written and recorded in Vienna, Austria, but has not yet been formally released. Though his songwriting is still inspired by a passion for political and social issues, most of his most recent songs have come out of feelings of confusion and isolation and were written in an attempt to coop with those feelings. In May of 2009, Ian formed a band called Nowhere Train with four other Austrian musicians. Their two week "grassroots" tour through Austria was documented on film and followed by Austria's most popular alternative radio station; FM4. It is hard to find Ian settled in one location now-a-days, as he moves from one country to another, but many listeners do find this artist's sound to be comparable to that of Bob Dylan, Jeff Buckley, Jose Gonzalez, and Nick Drake, to name a few.
