A cute song that ties together fishing and romantic relationships with a simile. “Fisherman” is a definite summer song with a case of beer down by the lake with your significant other with fishing polls in the sand waiting for the first bite of the day. “Fisherman” features all the classic country instrumentation but what I think I like most is the tremolo effect on the guitars panned wide to me creates a sense of humidity within the composition. The lyrical content is nostalgic and sweet though with any country song their are tales of heartache within the verses. Definitely a song for the lake in the country during summer time is “Fisherman” by Linda Mizzi.
“Linda Mizzi is a singer songwriter based in Katoomba NSW in the Blue Mountains. Seamlessly blending folk, jazz and blues, she draws on influences as diverse as Rickie Lee Jones, Patty Griffin, Lucinda Williams and Doris Day! Much to the delight of some, Linda refuses to fit comfortably into any one musical niche – instead weaves all her musical influences – along with life experiences, melodies and lyrics into her songs.
She is joined by band members; Alexander Kelleron bass guitar, Stefano Cosentino on lead guitar, Ian Neil Morrison on drums and percussion, Sonja Keller on violin, and Simon Crosbie on harmonica. Linda and the band recently performed at the Blue Mountains Music Festival in March, have been accepted into Folk by the Sea in September this year and have also performed at the Maldon Folk Festival in Victoria and the Gulgong Folk Festival in 2017.”
