Jeremy Fisher – Mint Juleps (Hidden Pony)

Singer-songwriter Jeremy Fisher has been somewhat quietly toiling away here in Canada for the past number of years. On Mint Juleps, his fifth record, Fisher offers a collection of originals alongside finely assembled covers by the likes of John Hiatt, Jean Leloup, and more, helping give a great appreciation on how far this singer-songwriter has come. The original and cover tracks on Mint Juleps actually blend together so seamlessly, don’t be surprised if you’re checking the songwriting credits on this largely acoustic record to see if what you’re listening to is an original or if it is a cover. Yes, Fisher is that good.
