Ben Fisher, a singer-songwriter from Seattle, has just released his first full-length album, Heavy Boots & Underwoods, earlier this summer. Carving out a niche for himself busking, Fisher has moved to the studio in hopes to do the same. Partially funded by a Kickstarter campaign, the majority of the record’s support came from the generous people roaming the farmer’s markets or walking the Seattle streets. An enterprising street performer, Fisher would rather busk than book a show at one of Seattle’s many clubs. This passion even comes through in the raw, acoustic production of Heavy Boots & Underwoods, a commendable effort both musically and lyrically. I’m certain the future holds more for Fisher. Maybe a more polished busker? You know what they say, you can take the busker off the streets but you can’t take the busker out of the artist…Or, something like that.
