New album NASHVILLAIN available now on all popular streaming platforms & online.

Fish Fisher: The Godfather Of Ghettobilly

Fish Fisher is an award winning songwriter, singer & producer based out of both Gatlinburg TN & Toledo Oh. He regularly plays his special hybrid of original music across the country but is especially fond of touring all of southern Appalachia. 

Fish has co-written with hundreds of other songwriters and in all genres. Many artists have cut his songs from his catalog of approximately 1,800 works. He literally has over 200 released songs available on spotify & other popular streaming platforms written & recorded by himself or other artists & bands, .  

Fish’s signature sound is always gruff, rootsy and down-home, but genre-hopping is his specialty. Call his style whatever you want, he's just happy you're listening. 

Fisher was born & raised by a southern family of West Virginia roots in a poor but hard working northern neighborhood in Toledo, a blue collar city within the shadow of Detroit. He's an anomaly of a country music singer who has never claimed to be raised on a farm, worn a cowboy boot on a dirt road or lived in a  small town. This may explain his proclivity for more urban subject matters, aggressive rhythms and howling vocal deliveries to working-class stories and lyrics.

He currently lives in Gatlinburg TN and still maintains a home in Toledo to be near his family whenever he gets a break. For over 10 years he simply continues to travel various highways and stages back & forth to both “homes” while also keeping regular presence in Nashville too.  

Having cultivated a loyal following by touring the Great Lakes region and southern Appalachia nonstop for over a decade, Fisher offers something for outlaw-country fans everywhere. His live performances encapsulate his unique blend of where “the Rust Belt meets the Coal Belt.”

NASHVILLAIN is Fisher’s seventh full-length solo album, with numerous other endeavors released with other bands and side projects within the Southern rock, country and alt-folk genres. It will drop on November 10 through most digital music outlets, with CDs available at live shows and at
