We're just waiting for Santa to arrive tonight, but Cat already knows what her belated birthdaypresent is going to be: our first house concert of 2015 will feature the inventive and deceptively entertaining Jeremy Fisher!
Jeremy is a recent returnee to Ottawa, and 2014 saw him release The Lemon Squeeze, his seventh album. What makes Jeremy an ideal BobCat performer? He's got a distinctive voice (he says "sounds like Simon, looks like Garfunkel"), he's got considerable skill on guitar and piano, and his songs range over a broad range from pop-inspired tunes to broadwayesque story songs with a mix of sincerity and sly wit that is captivating.
He's toured the country by bicycle and by less fun means of transportation, he's toured with such notables as Xavier Rudd, Sarah Slean, Peter Katz, and Danny Michel, Cat loves him (Bob too), and if you haven't discovered him yet, you will be a fan by the end of the night.
You can stream the album here to get a sense of how smart and fun Jeremy's music is. See you on the 21st?
