Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Christy Fisher will be featured in a solo performance for this month’s Music in the Stacks concert series on Thursday, August 25 from 5-6:30 p.m. in the Fireside Hall of the Camp Verde Community Library.

Nominated in four categories by the 2021 International Association of Singers and Songwriters, Christy’s performances are a combination of award-winning songwriting, unusual audio engineering techniques and powerful vocals that have been compared to Annie Lennox, Ani DiFranco and Linda Ronstadt.

Based in Jerome, Christy has played with a few local musical groups throughout her 30 years in the region, including Mountain Stranded Time, Cattywampus, Christy and Frenz, The Jerome Philharmonic Convergence and the Jerome Ukulele Orchestra…and has released two albums. over the past year that now appear in more than 40 countries.

“The pandemic lockdown had a silver lining,” she says. “The time of lockdown gave me the time I needed to build a home recording studio and start pursuing my music seriously again.”

Not a newcomer to the music business, Christy has been one of the voices behind many other musical ventures, including signing to Decca Records and releasing a single from Jesus Christ Superstar. “My first release was a 45 in the 70s, when playlists included a spindle and an insert.”

His rock ‘n’ roll life has included Barry White, Buddy Miles, Tom Petty, Warren Zevon, Frank Zappa and many more.

His performance includes a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of some of his recordings. Christy often uses objects like walls, stairwells or kitchen utensils to build drum tracks…then works the audio magic with effects and loops, layering bass and keyboards.

You’ll hear her perform some of her “twisted covers” (where she smashes and spins everything from Britney Spears to Zombies) as well as original material from her first two albums, plus new material from her third album.

The Camp Verde Community Library is located just off Montezuma Castle Highway at 130 Black Bridge Road, Camp Verde. For more information about this or any other library program, visit the library’s website at CVLibrary.org or call 92-554-8391.
