"Darren Fisher is the sort of artist that wears his musical heart on his sleeve.
A festival living childhood has only served to ingrain each thoughtfully crafted note, holding hands with words that draw you further into his wordsmith storytelling world.
The obvious compassion would be Dylan and Donovan, but that would be a grave injustice.
His sound may have started life with them but an artist of this type only comes but once a generation.
There is only one softly spoken Darren Fisher.
Listen , learn and enjoy the journey with him."

“I love feathers and oak trees, bought it in a bar in Plymouth after a particularly epic gig. The more I listen to it the more people and characters I see in the songs, the more I relate to it. In simple terms its fucking brilliant.”

“Original studio recorded songs that will take you on a journey from the most tender of soul searching acoustic innocence to the darkest cries of grunge rock and beyond.
Every album recorded and released by Darren Fisher is the product of a long and thoughtful recording experience, utilising the talent of class session musicians and production. This attention to detail along with his natural feel for music combines to make albums timeless in quality that will become a friend for life and like a good bottle of wine, will get better with age.”
“This debut album is the freshest most organic homegrown album I’ve heard this last decade. Not overly trying to sound retro or cool. But succeeding in capturing the essence of what many of the great song writers of our time have done. The likes of ’The Band’, ’Dylan’, ’The Wallflowers’, ’Counting Crows’, and ’REM’ spring to mind. This album is just full of great tracks. The soundtrack to a future summer I feel. Stand out tracks have to be 'Madaran', 'Emily', and ’Ain’t got time’. However the album seller has to be the song ’Changed’, a modern tale of the recent events of the world. Darren Fisher sings with a passion so intense that a fleet of firefighters would struggle to put this guys inferno of emotion out. This is definately my album of the year.”
“‘Life is change…and change is pain’. Darren Fisher is not the first artist to depict our craving for love — to sketch our collective desperation — through the paintbrush of musical poetry. What ranks this album with other great works, is the grace of a living philosophy; a vision... both born and ready to be realised. ‘Feathers and Oak Trees’ does not limit itself to the daggers of greed or the horror and beauty in death; it is also a celebration of long summer nights playing music, getting high, laughing: embracing the ancient, and all-but-forgotten, gift of life.
My most alive memories resound with Darren in the dingy flats and open fields of Brighton, where we plotted to wake the masses from their sterile dream. This album catapults me back into that majestic frame of mind — which Mr Fisher has always inhabited, and he will continue to radiate universally through his music.

“Breathtaking voice and strong lyrics...”

“So I was at a gig in Torbay where my cousin was playing and I got chatting to this super hot guy with long hair. Anyway, not only was this dude cute, I found out he had a couple of albums so I asked for one! I placed it in my bag and vowed to listen to it when I got home, a huge smile on my face at the thought of a new music interest. To be honest, I didn't know what to expect - the cover art was really cool and there were some fab track names so when I popped it on, I was thrilled to hear some banging tunage with a fantastic voice singing at me from out of the CD player. I loved On A Roll and With You, fantastic album and I hope to see some live stuff from Darren Fisher soon!”
