Album Notes
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 put his Radio, T.V. and Film Degree to work in various jobs including executive/production assistant, announcer and, finally, as a writer of fiction, music, comedy and screenplays. His creative training includes two years of study with The Groundlings, three years as a performer with the improvised soap opera, Specific Hospital, and he is a lifetime alum of the Writers Boot Camp Think Tank. "I like to think I have one foot in fiction, the other in screenwriting and my heart in music."

Follow A Hunch is Robert's first critically-acclaimed CD, released in 1996 and foreshadows the neo-narrative style which Robert would further develop across 4 albums with Darryl Purpose and ultimately lead to his 2005 follow-up, Built Myself a Greenhouse (see below). 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 also on his own Imperative Records label and also co-produced by Chad Watson. That 14-song CD is also available here in CD Baby and features guest performances by: David Arkenstone, Ned Beatty, Delaney Bramlett, Rosemary Butler, Albert Lee, John McEuen, Augie Meyers, John Molo, Vern Monnett, Chris Montez, Mickey Raphael, Don Randi, Jimmy Raschel, Sky Saxon, Daryl S, Chris Spedding, Brad Swanson and Ethan Wiley. 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," delivered as a duet with Rosemary Butler, famous for her vocal work backing up (among others) Jackson Browne and Neil Diamond.
