Chad Fisher has become one of the most sought-after musicians in the South. He began his career playing the trombone in the rich soul, blues and jazz scenes of Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi, playing with local and regional bands. He was also leading his own band, then performing nationally with soul legends The Temptations, Four Tops, The O’Jays, Muscle Shoals’ The Swampers and a host of others, according to his bio. 

Fisher is a member of Birmingham, Alabama’s own St. Paul and The Broken Bones, and contributed to two albums, “Sea of Noise” in 2016 and “Young Sick Camellia” in 2018, which led to national and international tours as well as late night television performances on NBC, CBS, ABC, MTV and TBS. The band has performed with Elton John and opened concerts for The Rolling Stones. Fisher can also be heard on Grammy-winning songwriter Jason Isbell’s record “Live from Alabama” and appeared on Isbell’s recent performance on PBS’ “Live at Lincoln Center.” 

Fisher’s own band of all-star musicians is becoming known as one of the region’s best. His songwriting is full of vocal melodies and harmonies inspired by the country music he heard as a boy, but combines the instrumental textures, horns and rhythms of soul, Afro-beat and rock to create a unique and exciting music.
