ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
LISTEN
Juni Fisher takes the willing horseman and woman on a journey that enters the essence and heart of horsemanship: the deep connection between horse, and those humans willing to look for it.
In the empathetic title track “Listen” the horse implores the rider to tune in to what is going on, the honoring of the work of the farrier in “For Want of a Nail,” and then the eerily prophetic look at the treatment of America’s native people in Mitchell and Fisher’s “Still There,” one would feel that they know where this is going, but the easy going sound of “Fillinic,” written about the great mare that created the Greg Ward dynasty in the reined Cow Horse world will carry the listener along ‘til the last verses, and then deliver a hard hitting message that is sure to linger in the heart of horsemen.
“Fly Without Leaving the Ground” is as autobiographical as Fisher has ever written, we get a glimpse into what she had and almost lost, and then regained, and “Stewball” was a childhood favorite of hers. Juni loved Mike Beck’s fine tribute to Bill Dorrance and his bridle horse “Patrick,” and “Cuttin’ Horse Pen” is destined to be the national anthem of cutting horse riders and enthusiasts.
Poet Diane Tribitt shared her wonderful poem “Song of the Nighthawk,” and Fisher found a hauntingly beautiful way to give it a musical voice. “Who They Are” was one of the first songs Fisher and Mitchell wrote together several years ago, and was a perfect fit to honor horsemen and women. The final track, “Ride With Your Heart Open” celebrates the horsemen of the world who are willing to help people understand their own unique, and ever evolving connection with horses. This is an album for horses and the humans who dedicate their lives to them. Listen...you will understand.

Review by Western Horseman Magazine:
The latest CD release from singer-songwriter Juni Fisher gets to the heart of the horse-human bond and takes listeners on a musical journey celebrating stock horses and the people who ride them.
The journey begins on the CD cover, where Fisher writes: “The true horsemen and women who listen to this album may be inspired to laugh, cry, and share the word. Those who do not fully understand may seek to learn more, and for that, the horses of the world are celebrating.”
Listeners are treated to 11 traditional Western songs with a horse related theme, six of which are written by Fisher. In three of the songs, cowboy poets Waddie Mitchell and Diane Tribitt join Fisher.
The title track “Listen” has a natural horsemanship message of tuning into a horse and trying to see things from its perspective. The fourth track, “Fillinic” is a tribute to the legendary Quarter Horse mare who started a cow-horse dynasty, while track seven, “Patrick,” written by Mike Beck, honors Bill Dorrance and one of his bridle horses. Track eight, “Cuttin’ Horse Pen,” is an upbeat anthem dedicated to those who compete in cutting.
Before her music career ignited, the award-winning entertainer spent her early years training horses and working on ranches. Even though she now spends most of her time on the road performing, she still gets horseback as often as she can. Her knowledge of and sensitivity to the horse come through in her lyrics, and anyone who knows horses can tell they were written from personal experience. As much autobiographical as it is entertaining, the CD is perfect to play in the barn, in the truck, or at home.
Jennifer Dennison, for Western Horseman
