Artist: Jeremy Fisher, Album: Goodbye Blue Monday, Song: Scar That Never Heals

"She runs guns, everyone wants guns.  She runs guns, everyone wants...there she goes."  Canadian folk-rock troubadour, Jeremy Fisher, originally from Hamilton and now residing anywhere and everywhere but it seems.  Jeremy started his solo career in 2001 with his indie debut.  Goodbye Blue Monday is his third release but first with the label Aquarius.  It was released in 2007.  He is superb at crafting the perfect pop melody much like the artist, Ben Lee.  I find his singing reminiscent of Simon and Garfunkel at times.  Oddly enough, he recently accompanied Jesse Cook on a cover version of Cecilia.  Interesting facts about Jeremy Fisher include the following.  In support of his 2001 debut, he toured by bicycle from Seattle to Halifax.  7500 kms, 30 shows and all the proceeds went to charity.  His You Tube videos are really good.  His video for the song, Cigarette, has been seen by over 2.3 million viewers.  You can see the excellent video for a Scar That Never Heals on You Tube as well (  According to his website , the song will be featured in the ABC show, Rookie Blue.  The album is available on Itunes and  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
