A pioneer of the Brooklyn music scene, Howard Fishman began his career on the streets of New Orleans and in the subways of NYC, experiences that still resonate in his "disarmingly un-showbizy" concerts (Backstage). A pioneer of the Brooklyn music scene, Fishman "brings a feeling to a room that is reunion-like. Everyone there is part of a communityit can't be helped." (11211 Magazine). His music has been featured in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The International Herald Tribune, The Los Angeles Times and on NPR's Fresh Air, World Café and Soundcheck, among many others.
A testament to his wide-ranging appeal, Fishman has appeared on bills with such diverse artists as Califone, Odetta, Yo-Yo Ma, Maceo Parker, Robyn Hitchcock, Taj Mahal and Allen Holdsworth. He hasbeen featured as a headlining performer on major stages worldwide, including Lincoln Center (as part of the American Songbook Series); The New York Guitar Festival at Merkin Hall; at The Steppenwolf Theatre; and The Pasadena Playhouse.
Fishman's travels and omnivorous curiosity inform his constantly-expanding repertoire of special projects, from his original oratorio "we are destroyed," about The Donner Party, to his multi-media travelogue "No Further Instructions," to his New Orleans-inspired Biting Fish Brass Band. His tenth CD, "Moon Country," was released in October.
