LUKE FISHER MUSIC

3 img 2335
       Luke Fisher likes to make up songs and sing them to people.  He believes that every song is a love song at its core.  Sometimes that love is good; sometimes it's bad. Sometimes it's ... strange.  He says, "Every one of my songs are true, but some of 'em are a little more factual than others."
       And there is a deep current of truth running through his music.  These songs are revealing, but never take themselves too seriously.  From ballads to straight up honky-tonk rockers, when you see him play, whether solo or with the band, you know he means it, and he gives you everything he has.  And he has a hell of a good time doing it.

Gumtree Festival Songwriters Competition 

The semi-finalists (including me) will play this Saturday from about noon until 3:00, with the finalists being announced at 4:00.  If I'm one of three finalists, I'll get to play a twenty minute set after lunch on Sunday.

Semi-finalist at the Gumtree Festival songwriters competition 

I'm excited to be a semi-finalist in Tupelo's Gumtree Festival Songwriters Competition this year! I'll play at the festival around noon on Saturday, May 13 on the Spring Street Stage with other semi-finalists.  The top three will play on Sunday with competition judge and 3 time Grammy winner Lari White.  Here is a video of me playing one of the songs I entered, "Blind."

Fun time in Nashville! 

My friend Drew Laney had me on her show, Reminisce Radio, on Radio Free Nashville last Tuesday, then I got invited to play songwriters night at the Commodore Lounge with Les Kerr and Steve Haggard the next night.  We had a great time, and I hope to get back there soon.

New Goings On 

I've got a lot of shows in June, including a couple of shows with the full band, a few with an acoustic duo and some solo shows.  In particular, the Yocknapatawpha Arts Council's Summer Sunset Series show in The Grove at the University of Mississippi will be awesome!  It's a great family evening evening, and they do it every Sunday evening in June.

Also, I've been threatening to put out an Album any time now.  It looks like it's really going to happen.  We're doing final mixes and have a great mastering engineer booked, so cross your fingers!

I look forward to seeing you soon!

Luke Fisher at Hometown Pizza Cafe in Water Valley April 9 

I've started eating at Hometown Pizza in Water Valley when I'm in Luke Fisher Music World Headquarters later in the evening.  I enjoy the food and the people are nice.  Plus, they have live music on Saturday nights.  So far I've just eaten pizza off the buffet, but I'm going over there tonight and I might have to try a philly Cheese Steak Hoagie!  Any way, I'll be playing for my supper there on Saturday evening, April 9, 2016.  If you're in the area, come support a great local restaurant and local music.  It's a win-win situation! (Or win-win-win-win-win, if you bring the family.)

I've moved! 

Big changes have come with the new year!  I have set up the Luke Fisher Music World Headquarters in Water Valley, MS, about 20 miles south of Oxford.  I now have a space where I can practice, rehearse with a band, do a little recording, and blare my stereo, all during the day, along with doing office-y things that need doing (lots)! Plus Water Valley is a nascent arts community with a lot of cool people and things to do, and a great vibe for doing what I do.  Change is good!
