About the Artist

As early explorers of the MP3.com landscape, Fisher became the 1st band signed to a major label deal on the basis of the strength of its musical downloads. They garnered three million downloads of their single "I Will Love You" before most bands figured out there were other ways than brick-and-mortar to reach listeners. With no publicity machine behind them, they built enough buzz on their own to be profiled in "Time," "Entertainment Weekly," and the "Los Angeles Times" as vanguards of the digital music revolution--and be invited to the coveted desk side seat next to Jay Leno after tearing it up on "The Tonight Show."

new moms will be particularly attracted to the pretty songs. the lullaby "you" is especially nice -- one of only two Lullaby songs to actually make me weepy-eyed thinking about my wee one (who is now 8) (the other song was "baby mine" by alison krauss)

her voice is as lush and memorable as ever, and the music and arrangements are even better than on previous works.

stand outs other than "you": "all i ask" "beautiful day" "sleepy head" "lovely years" "turn around" and "be here".

good stuff! cd universe has the cd for $3 cheaper. i guess amazon gets their shipping cost one way or another.....

The lovely years is a lovely cd with something for everyone.

There is the upbeat songs like "Beautiful Life" (featured in the Toyota commercial),

The quirky "Biggest fan"

A Beautiful duet "So Much" with Ben Taylor (son of James Taylor and Carly Simon)

a haunting ballad "Sleepyhead"

and more.

If your a Fisher fan its a MUST have if your not a fan yet,you will be.

I discovered Kath Fisher on itunes and fell in love with her album "One". Her voice is truly her instrument, so controlled and multi-layered, soulful and capable of long notes and belts. She has a good range, with shades of Tori, Alanis, but with a deep tone that makes her truly unique. Her lyrics are cool, with an enunciation that makes them understandable. Her tunes are catchy, but not your typical radio pop, though I have heard her on San Diego radio. Standouts include "I will love you" on ONE; I love "Beautiful Life" which you may recognize from the Toyota commerical; and "The Lovely Years" from the new album of the same name. I actually have all of her albums, and all songs are just great. UPPERS AND DOWNERS is an album of 1/2 quick tempo songs and 1/2 slower songs, with lots of covers, including a cool version of "Dream On". If you are looking for a great, but for some reason undiscovered in the mainstream true talent, you can't go wrong with Fisher. Why isn't this girl famous?

Format: Audio CD
The music is equal parts soulful yet sometimes playful, sorrow filled and lamenting, serious yet sometimes flippant, a dichotomy that becomes apparent upon one's first listen to The Lovely Years- - the accessibility and simple beauty of the music accompanies deeply emotional themes. Kathy's voice melts around and pulls you inside the music. With power and grace Kathy's voice creates a connection with the listener and sometimes she almost dares you to turn away. For those of you who haven't heard Fisher's music before it is a bit like Fiona Apple (although Fisher may not like this comparison, listen to their song The Life) meets Radiohead meets Nina Simone-creating a sound that is uniquely their own. Almost like a Saint Kathy breathes in carbon dioxide and exhales oxygen breathing new life into the listeners.

The only thing more impressive than the songs on "The Lovely Years" is the set of circumstances that led to their creation. Fisher got a break when their song "I Will Love You" was downloaded 3 million times. They became one of the first bands to be signed to a major label based on the MP3 downloads. Their label didn't appreciate the beauty or hard work of the band. They were left with no one. Rather than getting soured, Fisher got inspired and got a new label, Iris Records, which should inspire you to run out and buy the Lovely Years.

I love Fisher's music, and bought this the day it came out. The music is good, but I was a little disappointed that the theme for the album was about how wonderful it is to be parents. Not that babies aren't wonderful, they are, but if you aren't a new parent you may not relate well to this album and True North would be a better pick.
