“These songs are here to hold you and remind you - that all that you are is enough, you are enough.” - Katherine Fischer
Hailing from London Ontario, Katherine Fischer writes songs for souls with big feelings. Katherine's debut full length album "Great Loves" was released November 2022, and has garnered over 100,000 streams and 10,000+ listeners worldwide. Songs off of Great Loves have been added to multiple editorial playlists including “Today’s Singer-songwriters” (YouTube) “Renegade Folk” (Spotify) and “Folk & Friends” (Spotify). "Great Loves' “ blends Americana, indie pop, cinematic strings and harmonies that wrap around you to create a breathtaking folk album. Great Loves is the story of all encapsulating love, of the land, of people, of yourself. Her latest single "Last One Gone" was released June 2023.
In August 2016 Katherine released her debut EP "Here I Am" followed by her sophomore release "Wildflower Heart" in 2019. Her songs share folky heart led narratives that rival your favourite coming of age novel. Katherine's song "I Choose You" was included on Amazon's "Best of 2020: Folk" playlist alongside Kathleen Edwards and John Prine. In 2021 her single "Memories" was released and placed on Spotify's "New Music Friday" and most recently her songs "The Current" and “Explain It” were added to Spotify's "Folk and Friends" playlist.
From coast to coast Katherine has played over 250 shows from festival performances at Winnipeg Folk Festival, Live From The Rock and main stage at Home County Music and Art Festival to living rooms with SOFAR Sounds. In summer 2024 Katherine will be collaborating with Ontario Parks to bring the first ever musical tour to Ontario Parks across the province. This project is generously supported by the Ontario Arts Council.
To see her play, is to know her story and end the night as if parting from an old friend. Come to listen, stay to connect and, if anything, know that Katherine Fischer’s songs are her gift to you.
Her songs weave the tellings of an empath soul, with radiant vocals, windblown guitar and a pop sensibility grounded in truth.
