Indie artist Scott Fisher has announced the release of “Once in a While”, the first single from the forthcoming album Kingdom of Ego. The new track was “conceptually and phonically inspired” by The Beatles mixed with Motown. Elements of early Soul and Gospel music also shaped Fisher’s songwriting on the track.
The song “Once in a While” covers themes of “hope, lessons from past mistakes, and craving sensuality in both a personal and artistic sense.”
Alongside Fisher, “Once in a While” features bass guitarist Tim Lefebvre (David Bowie, Elvis Costello, John Mayer) and drummer Jeff Anthony (Sheryl Crow, Chuck Prophet). Production for the track and upcoming album took place exactly where Lefebvre and Fisher met a year prior, at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, TX. There they created thirteen tracks which would ultimately become Kingdom of Ego. Production for the album began in the summer of 2022, with a main theme of “ego distorting reality” affecting most of the songs.
Scott Fisher also Produces for various television shows, some of which include Shameless, Parks and Recreation, Better Call Saul, Raising Hope, Gossip Girl, Brothers and Sisters, and The Good Doctor.
His self-titled solo project began in 2007 with a piano-Pop album. Since then, Fisher’s musical scope has encompassed Indie Folk, Classical piano, and 70’s Psychedelic Rock. Fisher has opened for artists such as Brandi Carlile, Augustana, and Pink Martini.
