Robert Morgan Fisher hails from Los Angeles, California and has released "Notes For A Novel" just this year, 2012. Robert refers to himself as a "Narrative Engineer", which couldn't describe his style any better. All 12 songs are penned as complete stories, exceptionally well written and married with music exquisitely. Robert Morgan Fisher sings about life, love, current events and experiences but adds his unique perspectives giving a full bodied, rich feel to his music. His lyrics are solid and have a life of their own. Robert Morgan Fisher writes from a place of honesty which is addictive and oh so much needed and missed.
I found "Notes For A Novel" an impressive album. Robert Morgan Fisher is an established musician and does a marvelous job on vocals. It is obvious to all who hear this album, Robert Morgan Fisher has honed his skills to perfection. The back vocals frame Robert's voice beautifully. The level of instrumentation achieved on this album is magnificent. Superbly orchestrated and produced, "Notes For A Novel" is definitely one of those albums I will be playing for years to come.
The three tracks I have set aside are:
1 - Unimpressed (Fisher)
This is an upbeat track about being unimpressed with things happening around us. It is an honest look at life, perhaps a bit cynical, but aren't we all at times. Robert Morgan Fisher's strong lyrics take you on a journey. His gorgeous vocals make this song a keeper.
2 - Harold Examiner (Fisher)
Another magnificent track from this exceptional album "Notes For A Novel". It has absolutely brilliant lyrics. Once again, Robert Morgan Fisher mesmerizes us with his gorgeous narrative vocal style. The sound of the trumpet makes this song shine. Wonderfully done.
3 - Don't You Wanna Go To Mars (Fisher)
This track will touch your heart. Robert Morgan Fisher has done a spectacular job on the lyrics. You will feel like you know who he is speaking of and you will want to go to mars. Such a special song. Stunning!
Big Joe and Phantom 309 (Faile)
This song is an absolute treasure. Robert Morgan Fisher, in a narrative fashion, tells a story of Big Joe and Phantom 309 that will leave goose pimples on your arms. It is a pure and simply orchestrated track which leaves you breathless and hanging on every word Robert utters. Stunning job! Robert Morgan Fisher's sexy voice will stay with you for hours. LOVE IT!
Robert Morgan Fisher - "Notes For A Novel" 2012, has to be one of the purest forms of folk I have heard in a very long time. He will transport you back to when folk was taken seriously as a story board, one you can sing about love or protest wrongs in society. Robert Morgan Fisher embodies the richness and honesty of a true folk singer/songwriter. He really is a "Narrative Engineer". You need to hear this album, it is astounding. One for the "good stack". Come on... join the Fisher Zone!!
