Biography

Heath Green and Chad Fisher met a few years ago playing gigs around Birmingham. They soon discovered their shared love and country, soul, and rock & started playing together in clubs around the city. These shows were never rehearsed and featured a rotating cast of musicians. The results were often very raw and always had great energy. Green and Fisher started FisherGreen out of a desire to refine this sound, form a steady working band and focus on writing new material. Soon after FisherGreen was formed. Former friends and bandmates of Fisher and Green joined forces to create somewhat of a Birmingham supergroup; it wasn't long before the band had gained the reputation as one of the best live acts in the area.

Fisher plays regularly as a sideman for many acts, such as The Temptations, Gregg Allman, and Jason Isbell - most recently arranging and leading the horn section on Isbell's recent album, Live From Alabama.
Green is one of the most in-demand musicians in Birmingham and is regarded as one of the most soulful singers in Alabama. On September 18th, 2012 FisherGreen released their Debut Album, Keep It Together. The album was recorded at Ol Elegante Studio and produced by Les Nuby (Verbena, Vulture Whale) and FisherGreen.

Lyrics

Tearin' Down My Soul

Written By: FisherGreen

Well They're tearin’ down my soul lord
They're tearin’ down my soul
They're tearin’ down my soul lord
So Jesus don't wait on me

They're tearin’ down my soul lord
They're tearin’ down my soul
They're tearin’ down my soul lord
So Jesus don’t wait on me

I can't take the lies they tell themselves their children and their wives
And they all believe
It wasn't that long ago they all sold their souls
For their own false beliefs
How naive

They're tearin’ down my soul lord (Tearin’ down my soul)
Tearin’ down my soul (Tearin’ Tearin’)
Tearin’ down my soul lord(tearin down my soul)
Jesus don't wait on me

They're tearin’ down my soul lord(tearin’ down my soul)
Tearin’ down my soul(Tearin’ Tearin’)
Tearin’ down my soul lord
So Jesus don't wait on me

Like fat little rats that dig around in the trash
Eatin’ up their own dignity
They'll buy and sell just about anything
Just as long as it feeds their own greed
That's so obscene

Tell me now brother have you forgotten how love and act around one another
Well if push comes to shove and you've forgotten how to love
There'll blood in the streets
but it won't come from me

They're tearin’ down my soul lord(Tearin’ down my soul)
Tearin’ down my soul(Tearin’ tearin’)
Tearin’ down my soul lord
So Jesus don't wait on me

They're tearin’ down my soul lord(tearin’ down my soul)
Tearin’ down my soul(Tearin’ tearin’)
Tearin’ down my soul lord
so Jesus don't wait on me

Flicker

Written By: FisherGreen

It's been so long since I've been sane
then I met you on forgotten lane
You know my friends tell me to wait
but if I do it might be too late

And it seems a shame to wait so long
so very long
And it seems a shame to move so slow
so gotta know

That I'm gonna call you
I'm gonna call you

One thought of you, then a smile
Now I can't wait to walk another mile
And that waterfall don't have to fall
if we can just flicker all day lone

And it seems a shame to wait so long
so very long
And it seems a shame to move so slow
so gotta know

That I'm gonna call you
I'm gonna call you

It's okay to flicker
and we don't have to choose
It's okay to flicker
cuz I just want some time with you
I just need some time

Intrumental

It's okay to flicker
and we don't have to choose
It's okay to flicker
cuz I just want some time with you
I just need some time

It's been so long since I've been sane
then I met you on forgotten lane
Though know my friends tell me to wait
but if I do it might be too late

So I'm gonna call you
I'm gonna call you

Sick Or Well

Written By: FisherGreen

Sometimes it's hard to tell
if you're sick or if you're well
You can't find no peace in yourself
with the words you sing

And It ain't easy to believe
in something you can't touch or see
And if it is or will ever come to be
there's a hope that it brings

So you keep on moving
Don't waste no time at all
Keep on groovin'
Gotta believe in your song
Keep it together
or you're left with nothing at all
No love, no song, no soul

Sometimes it all gets you down
Don't give in to the fear or doubt
Gotta get up, get it out, make a sound
cuz you got a song to sing

So you keep on moving
Don't waste no time at all
Keep on groovin'
Gotta believe in your song
Keep it together
or you're left with nothing at all
No love, no song, no soul

guitar

Sometimes it's hard to tell
when you're sick or when you're well
Find that peace in yourself
Sing your song

Sisters Brothers

Written By: FisherGreen

Put your hands together
Stomp your feet on the floor
We're gonna try it again like they did before
Open up your mind turn off that radio
Ain't sellin' nothin' here just sharing a little bit of soul

Come on sisters brothers
We owe this to each other
Come on brothers sisters
Sit back let music hit ya

Let me see ya
Let me see ya shake it loose
Don't worry what that fools thinkin next to you
Drop it like it's hot right down on the floor
When you think you've had enough get up and get you some more

Come on sisters brothers
We owe this to each other
Come on brothers sisters
Sit back let that music hit ya

Come on sisters brothers
We owe this to each other
Come on brothers sisters
Sit back let that music hit ya.....

The Spins

Written By: FisherGreen

Moody asked me who played lead on the Herman Band in '63
It don't matter to me
My drinks are free
And I hope I don't get the spins
I'll be spinning around and round in Galveston

T got up out of his seat he was fueled by rum to move his feet
but that's not for me
I drink for free
And I hope I don't get the spins
I'll be spinning around and round in Galveston

Yeah that record plays through my head
Reminds me of the things we did as I
stagger down the strand
No that two-face life is not for me
The end you know it won't come cheap so I'll
have another round
And I hope I don't get the spins
I'll be spinning around and round in Galveston

Those thoughts of you come back to me, seems to me they'll never leave
No it never ends
or begins
And I hope I don't get the spins
I'll be spinning around and round in Galveston

And I hope I don't get the spins
I'll be spinning around and round in Galveston

No I hope I don't get the spins
I'll be spinning around and round in Galveston
