WHO IS FRED FISCHER?
Fred is a highly energetic and entertaining drummer from Boise, Idaho whose passion for drumming is apparent in his larger-than-life performances. Besides his love for the stage, Fred also enjoys working in the recording studio and has recorded albums for his own bands and as a hired musician. Fred shares his passion for drumming by teaching private lessons and coaching a high school drumline. He is also a drummer for hire.
Fred has 28 years of professional experience where he has played over 3,500 concerts and toured in 15 states. While Fred currently plays most frequently with the funk driven Emily Stanton Band, Fred’s most notable work has been with Boise-based rock band, Midline, with whom he has played since 1995. Midline’s early radio success in the Boise market lead to years of touring and numerous opening slots for national acts in larger clubs and arenas. Midline was signed in 2002 to independent label, Gotham Records, with a national CD release through ADA/Time Warner distribution that lead to the licensing of four songs to ESPN’s Re-Evolution of Sports. Midline continues to perform as a support artist to national bands coming through Boise and is currently writing music with a target release for early 2019.
80’s inspired throw-back band, X-Drive, is a recording project featuring LA musicians Keith St. John (Montrose and Burning Rain) and James LoMenzo (White Lion, David Lee Roth, Megadeth, and John Fogerty). Guitarist and project leader Jeremy Brunner knew and admired Fred’s playing through local projects and flew him to LA to record and shoot a music video. With producers Wyn Davis and Andy Johns, X-Drive was released world wide through Frontiers Records and debuted at #22 in Japan.
Fred also drums with Cure for the Fall - an original local rock band who has released 2 singles on nationally syndicated Christian radio station, The Effect.
