To be alone with a guitar or piano is to confess. In the long road that is a career, you’re either leading or being followed by what one says in song.
Blueprints have been written over and over, for many who aspire to reach the mythical, prodigious ground of rock nirvana.
Local singer/songwriter Chad Fisher has one of these blueprints.
As an ex-member of local jam outfit James In Flames, Fisher has decided to be on his own with his new self-tilted, self-released "Acoustic Electric."
Fisher chooses to pass through the serious bowels of confession, for a more lighthearted approach. "Nicodemus," and "Celebration" are mainly instrumental jams that hearken to the rustic, acoustic Led Zeppelin "three" album. Fisher obviously has the chops to strike a mean chord on the guitar. "Life" has the in-the-woods, laid-back, campfire vibe that reminds listeners of a Michigan summer up north.
The album’s oddest and best track is the ambient reverb feedback laden "Electro-time." It is an electronic freak out; reminiscent of Pink Floyd’s "Run Like Hell." "Electro-time" features samples either from a movie, or perhaps self-created, but nonetheless brilliant.
"Acoustic Electric" is a fine debut for someone looking to tap into that ever-changing, ever-evolving singer-songwriter market.
Fisher will play live Friday at Cafe Latte in East Lansing and returns there Nov. 17. He’ll also perform Nov. 29 at Espresso Royale.
My ideal show is two 45 minute sets.
