Quote from Novelist & Blues Harpist Kevin Robinson on Fisher’s debut WPI CD:
“'Just A Few Old Memories' is a treasure chest, filled with so much more than memories. Much of what we call “American History" is spun, filtered, and without much substance, but Debbie's new CD is a picture of America's true soul, a beautiful tour of traditional music that carried me away on the first play through. While the movers and shakers throughout history build fortunes and gather power, real people work hard and--sometimes--write songs about life as it is: the good, the bad, the ugly, and the beautiful. Debbie Fisher handles these national treasures with skillful and loving care; and, because she does, listeners will stop, smile and experience feelings that have nothing to do with marketing, branding, and/or tweets. No matter what happens around us, good music always cuts through to the heart, and Just a Few Old Memories slides right in ("On the Wings of a Dove?") and makes itself right at home!"
"On the Rio Grande" speaks to the border issues of Mexican immigrants. In January 2016, Fisher performed the song at the 3rd "Hugs Not Walls" event in El Paso, TX January 2017.
In the summer of 2017, Fisher composed & performed a song: "Hope Rocks" for those in Recovery at the 1st Festival of it's kind, “Hope Rocks Festival” in Saugerties & returns annually to spread joy with The Sunshine Bus & music.
