"Country Star Genevieve Fisher’s London, ON Favourites"

London’s music scene will get you humming and set your toes tapping. Whatever your taste, we’ve got you covered at live venues, recording studios and the Music Hall of Fame that showcases world-class performers from the city. For a week in November 2021, the Canadian Country Music Awards return to Budweiser Gardens to celebrate country music full force. After hosting the awards in 2016, and the Ontario Music Awards for three years, the city is eager to welcome back the best.

One of the best is London’s own Genevieve Fisher who has earned six Female Artist of the Year nominations and numerous nominations for Single of the Year and Songwriter of the Year from the CMAO (Country Music Association of Ontario). The CCMA recognized her talent while still a teen by inviting her to perform at the 2012 New Artist Showcase. Her accomplishments include nine top 50 hits on both Billboard BDS and Mediabase Canadian National Country Charts and Country musician in the Forest City London Music Awards in 2017 and 2019. Genevieve’s Indigenous background has allowed her to earn three No. 1 hits on the North American Indigenous Music Countdown charts. She continues to write with some of the top names in country music - Tourism London

"London's homegrown talent showcased at JUNOfest"

The Bull & Barrel Urban Saloon had a busy few nights, hosting Western alum Genevieve Fisher on the Friday. She singled out members of the crowd to sing to as they danced along to her original tracks and a cover of The Tragically Hip song “Blow at High Dough.”

Fisher’s music has come full circle; she began her career at two years old when her grandmother entered her in the Ilderton Fair singing competition, and now Fisher is working on her latest song, “1943,” about her grandmother.

Fisher travels to Nashville when writing songs and recording, and has been doing so since her undergraduate degree in popular music studies. She likes to go into songwriting sessions with a title and a basic story. Then, she works out the rhythm with her songwriters. Storytelling, she explains, is the most important part of country music, whether that be about love, heartbreak or a night out with friends.

Genevieve Fisher covers the classic Tragically Hip song "Blow at High Dough" to an excited audience, March 15, 2019.

This is the first year Fisher has performed with the Junos, saying that this honour means so much more in her hometown of London - Western Gazette
