We in the Muruch household have loved Fisher’s music as long as we have loved each other. Fisher’s “I Will Love You” was Editor Vic’s first mp3 download in 1999, the mp3.com link of which was sent to her by then boyfriend Brendan. Husband and wife duo Fisher were kind enough to dedicate the song to us during their 2001 set at Mountain Stage on our 1st wedding anniversary. Here we are about to celebrate our 15th anniversary this winter and Fisher just released their 9th studio album, 3. You probably heard my excited scream when I saw Fisher covered Temple of the Dog’s “Hunger Strike” (one of our recent Throwback Thursday videos).
Fisher is a band we here at Muruch have been fans of for 15 years now, in fact their song “I Will Love You” was Editor Vic’s very first mp3 download in the autumn of 1999. Fisher’s music has since been featured on several television shows and commercials, most recently on a few American soap operas. The track “Find Me” from General Hospital is available for $1 at Bandcamp and you can download the gorgeous “Never Ending” (featured on The Young & the Restless) mp3 for free at Soundcloud. Fisher are finishing a new studio album, which should be available later this Summer.
