DALE FISHER "Sometimes in life, I'm finding out you've got to ask a lot of questions to yourself, keep sharpening your knife, cutting the doubt with a new direction for yourself..." -Dale Fisher, "Lift Me Up" In a city where stars are expected to shine bright, burn out and fade away, the stars that shine steady are too often overlooked. Dale Fisher is one such star. He's a well-traveled musician who has written and recorded with John Mellencamp, conquered the Los Angeles local scene, climbed a mountain of soundtracks, recorded and performed around the world, and even penned a commercial jingle or two. But it is only now, more than 20 years after he decided to make music his life, that he is releasing his first solo effort, appropriately titled "Dale Fisher." Fisher, an Iowa native who transplanted in Los Angeles after musical detours in Colorado and New Orleans, offers a perspective that's not common in the ever-changing, always-cynical music industry; he boasts an airy and buoyant, acoustic guitar-based sound, densely spackled around a farm-fresh foundation. He can, and has, impressed staunch Hollywood crowds and celebrity types with his dynamic lyrics about life and love, and he does so with a musical transparency virtually unheard of in a city where the neon nights of the Sunset Strip offer so little solitude to the bleeding heart of a wear-your-heart-on-your-sleeve singer-songwriter. "People have that 'impress me' attitude here," says Fisher of Los Angeles, continuing with two things that never run short in his company, a laugh and a story: "The other night, I was at a show, and I was a little cold, and I folded my arms-my girlfriend looked at me and said, 'Don't do that, you look like one of those people!" But Fisher will never be mistaken for one of those people. It's just not in him. "When you meet people here, they're immediately shaking you up and down, wondering what you can do for them and thinking, 'How can you help me?' But when I got here, I was genuinely asking them, 'What can I do for you?' I realized that that actually made me a little too squirrely for some people. I have that same attitude onstage, because that's the person I am. I thought that because the college girls liked it, everyone would!" The band that Fisher moved to Los Angeles with, the Qkumbrz, became a name of local L.A. legend in the '90s, saturating the South Bay area with the same Midwest-flavor that had made Fisher such a consistent crowd-friendly favorite. Blitzing crowds with infectious, guitar-and-keyboard driven pop and feel good, celebratory rock, it wasn't long before they were noticed by a local management team with ties to Heartland rocker John Mellencamp, who not only hand-picked the band to share a stage with him at Farm Aid, but also wrote and recorded with Fisher and his Qkumbrz, placing their "Hold Me Like You Used To Do" on the acclaimed soundtrack for his motion picture directing debut, "Falling From Grace." The decade that followed was good to Fisher. An alumni of the heralded Berklee School of Music, he has recorded nearly a dozen albums at home and abroad, been awarded a gold record for his work on Poe's "Hello" debut in 1995, had a hit single with the song "Take It All In" (a track that was also featured on the soundtrack of Christine Ricci's "No Vacancy" in 1999), and evolved his Qkumbrz into the alternative-rock leaning Jettson, a current fixture on the Hollywood scene. Now, with a resume longer than most modern celebrity rap sheets, Dale Fisher is setting out on his own. Surrounded by players hand-picked to supplement his lush musical and lyrical tapestries, the songs on his solo debut shine with the tranquil warmth of "California Sunshine," the vibrant bounce of "Kay Sara" and the pleading forgiveness of "I Fall Apart." He packs infectious hooks that suit the stripped-down style of Adult Alternative radio, while clamoring with a folk-flavored '70s soul, weaving a sound so perfectly suited for Adult Contemporary formats, it is uncanny. On an album with no shortage of musical and emotional highlights, the crowning achievement is "The First Thing In The Morning," a string section caressing the country-rock inflections to epic heights. It's a simple love song, but one so perfect, it's a career-maker. The band are equally impressive, Fisher and his acoustic guitar fronting a lineup that boasts Wallflowers organist/piano player Rami Jaffee (the fingers responsible for tickling the ivory on "One Headlight"), bassist Paul Ill (Linda Perry, Juliette and the Licks) and drummer Kelli Scott (Veruca Salt, Failure). Even Veruca Salt frontwoman Louise Post joins the mix, contributing vocals on the jangling guitars of "Someone To Hold On To" and the more pensive "Factual." For a quarter century, Dale Fisher has never had a hard time finding people to support his music. Now, with his eponymous solo debut, he's opening his soul and embracing the opportunity to support himself. Welcome to his world...
