Animal Souls is an alt rock/pop ensemble headed by

songwriter/bassist/producer, Michael Fisher.

For a very long time, I've held on to a dream of forming my own band to record and perform my songs and the band was to be named Animal Souls. I've played in countless cover and original bands over the years, but none featured any of my original material... until now. The arrival of the Covid 19 pandemic changed everything. My 27 year career with Live Nation Entertainment came to a swift, unceremonious ending and my current cover band, SwitchCraft has been idle during this pandemic as well. This downtime presented me with the perfect opportunity to do what I've always wanted to do... record an album of my stuff!

I'm fortunate to live where I do. The Fraser Valley in British Columbia is home to some of the best musical talent around and somehow I was able to convince (coerce) about 20 or so of my musical mates to play on the record. The result is "Wisdom of Crowds" (aptly named I would say), containing 10 tracks, a combination of old tunes (written over 30 years ago) and some brand new ones. I've been told that it has a Brit-Pop feel to it, which pleases me, but the truth is that every song has its own style, no two are the same. I hope you like it... it took a long time to get here.
