The WDVX Blue Plate Special live at Visit Knoxville – 2/1 – Fish Fisher & EmiSunshine & the Rain
February 1, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Rolling Stone once named 15-year-old EmiSunshine among “10 new country artists you need to know.” There is no better way than to get to know this young singer/songwriter than “Family Wars.”
“Family Wars” is EmiSunshine and The Rain’s most personal project to date. With ten songs and one bonus track, the album addresses domestic violence, dysfunctional families, political corruption, mass murder, lost love, and freedom—those who have it, and those who seek it.
“The album is about working through different types of conflicts,” Emi says. “I’m just voicing my opinion about what I see going on in the world, but hopefully in a way that won’t offend. I’m looking at problems and trying to make something beautiful out of them.”
Emi has been attracting national attention since the age of nine, with appearances on “The Today Show,” NBC’s “Little Big Shots,” “Pickler & Ben,” the Grand Ole Opry and elsewhere. In 2018, she was featured in the Grammy-nominated Elvis Presley documentary film “The King,” alongside Rosanne Cash, Emmylou Harris, Ashton Kutcher, Alec Baldwin and other stars.
Fish Fisher is an award winning songwriter & Country, Folk & Southern Rock singer based out of Gatlinburg, Toledo & Nashville. He regularly plays his special hybrid of original music across the country but is especially fond of touring Appalachia.
Fish has co-written with hundreds of other songwriters and in all genres. Many artists have cut his songs over the past 10 years from his catalog of approximately 1,800 works.
Fish’s signature sound is always gruff, rootsy and down-home, but genre-hopping is his specialty. Call his style whatever you want.
Fish performs & records as a solo artist but is also found in several other bands & projects like:
*STRONG ARMED ROBBERS – Outlaw-Country music team-up with EmiSunshine, Big Diddy & Fish Fisher based out of east TN.
*S.U.S. – Hard Rock band from Toledo with Fisher as the frontman featuring over 10 albums worth of songs released.
*Distinguished Bastards of the Foothills – Detroit based band with that garage-Rock sound.
…as well as various other touring side projects & recording collaborations.
