Bio

Robert Morgan Fisher was born in Austin, Texas. His father was a Naval Flight Officer, so the Fisher family spent time in California, Washington State, Ohio, Virginia and Florida. Robert returned to The University of Texas at Austin where he began performing music in bars and coffeehouses. He soon migrated to Los Angeles where he found work as a writer of fiction, music, comedy and screenplays.

In 1996, Robert released the critically-acclaimed CD, Follow A Hunch, also on his own Imperative Records label and also co-produced by Chad Watson. Other artists have taken note of Robert's narrative songwriting skills. He's collaborated on songs with the late Dr. Timothy Leary and internationally-known neo-narrative singer/songwriter Darryl Purpose. "The songs I've written with Robert are all home runs," says Purpose, "I close my shows with them." Fisher/Purpose co-writes include: "Ring On My Hand," "Traveler's Code," "Dangerous Game," "Late For Dinner," "Granted," "Oughta Be A Highway," "You Must Go Home For Christmas" and many others. Their most famous co-write is probably "Mr. Schwinn" -- winner of no less than three major songwriting festivals and now a contemporary folk classic.

In the summer of 2005, Robert released Built Myself a Greenhouse on his own Imperative Records label. The 14-song CD was co-produced by Chad Watson and features guest performances by: David Arkenstone, Ned Beatty, Delaney Bramlett, Rosemary Butler, Albert Lee, John McEuen, Augie Meyers, Chris Montez, Mickey Raphael, Sky Saxon, Daryl S and Chris Spedding. The title cut, "Greenhouse," showcases the neo-narrative style for which Robert is well-known, as does "A Life in Music," "Numbah One Boom-Boom," "That's Why They Call it a Shot" and the poignant anthem for childless couples, "Question of Family." "A Life In Music" from this album was a top-5 finalist for the 2005 VH-1 Song of the Year in the Folk Category.

Robert has also served as the occasional Music Director of Second City's Totally Looped. Featuring such improv/comedy luminaries as Dan Castellaneta (The Simpsons), Laraine Newman (Saturday Night Live), Rick Overton (standup superstar) and Gail Matthius (Saturday Night Live), Totally Looped "dubs" dialogue into classic movie clips.

In 2006, Robert's song "We'll Buy a Flag" went to #1 on the Neil Young Living With War Songs of our Times Chart -- out of over 4,000 songs. Another song, "Jester King," also went to #1. Robert's "Angel Within" was selected by Narrative Music Canada as the Self-Discovery - 1st Place Lyric of International Narrative Song Competition 2006. The INSC is the biggest competition for narrative (storytelling) songs in the world.

Robert writes one thematically-linked collection of short stories per year and posts "companion songs" to many of the stories at:
