We Could Use a Little Rain
'..a cross between Tony Rice, James Taylor and Guy Clark..' 'Tom Fisch is a singer/songwriter in the classic sense.This tuneful and friendly album is simplistic in approach. It's nice to hear things that aren't over-produced. This is mellow American folk music...' Shake! Magazine, Nashville, TN 'Dan Seals meets Dave Mallett--great voice, great lyrics..' Jeannette Robinson WCHG Hot Springs, VA '...Fisch has refined his warm, relaxed singing style while eschewing the typically glitzy Music City over-production tendencies. With one foot in folk and the other in country Fisch offers a cover of Guy Clark's classic 'Homegrown Tomatoes' and 10 solid original tunes, including 'Kid From Yesterday' and the wonderful title track.' Greg Haymes Albany NY Times-Union Growing up in Albany, NY, Tom won his first guitar in a raffle at a school bazaar when he was ten years old. That began a lifelong love and appreciation of music from a variety of genres. Tom says, 'As the years went by, I found myself getting into singers and players like Doc Watson, James Taylor, Dan Fogelberg, Tony Rice, the Byrds, and traditional folk and country artists. I was also influenced by singer-songwriters such as Dave Mallet, John Prine, Steve Goodman, Dave Loggins, and Jonathan Edwards.' Tom entertained audiences for many years throughout the Northeast at colleges, clubs,coffeehouses,festivals and fairs. In 1991 Tom moved to Nashville, TN to further his songwriting career. He formed his own publishing company and his songs have been recorded by a number of artists, including the Oak Ridge Boys and Swiss country singer Erica Arnold. Tom continues to pitch his songs to other artists but his main focus now lies in his own career as a performer. In 2004, Tom relocated to Western North Carolina and it's thriving acoustic music scene. With the backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains for inspiration, Tom and his music have found a comfortable place to call home. And wherever he performs, audiences continue to connect with the warm, appealling style, diverse range of material, and talent this seasoned performer brings to the stage.
