BIO:

Ian Fisher’s music is a Euro-American hybrid. Half Americana & Half Abbey Road-Worthy Pop. A rarity of a songwriter who, building on his Midwestern folk roots, has found a delicate balance between deep, meaningful subtext and entertaining music. World aware, he uses his platform to voice his thoughts on society in a way that blurs the line between personal and political as only a restless traveler can. Simple, yet emotionally complex, Fisher’s insightful compositions resemble the acoustic grit of Hiss Golden Messenger and Vic Chestnutt with pen ready to strike a’la Billy Bragg meets an old Johnny Cash notebook. A one of a kind, heartbreaking voice, he sings like his life depends on it with a Jim Croce warmth and a McCartneyesque range.  Prolifically writing over one and a half thousand songs and touring the last decade and a half around Europe, America, and Africa, Fisher currently lives between Germany, Austria, and his family farm in Missouri.
