Animal Souls is an indie music collective based in Abbotsford, BC. The group is headed by bassist/producer Michael Fisher and features some of the best players in the Fraser Valley.

Originally from Burlington, Ontario Michael has called British Columbia home since 1983 and over the years he has played in many cover & original bands, managed and promoted artists and provided live sound services at local clubs and festivals.

When the Covid pandemic hit and Michael was 'retired' from a 27 year career at Live Nation, he called on some of his musical mates to help him record a 10-track album 'Wisdom of Crowds' which was released in August 2021. The album was a mix of old songs re-imagined from a late 80's stash of 4-track demos along with some newly written songs.

Animal Souls have since released the single 'Lessons of Love' (January 2022) and 'Soul Dance Redux' (May 2022). Next up is a re-mix of one of the album tracks 'Same Thing All Over' (June 2022) and a brand new track 'Midnight Sky' (summer 2022).

Michael also plays bass in the alternative rock band 3rd Deck, also based in Abbotsford, having just released their debut self-titled 5-song EP.

Life is good!
