Ryan Fischer is a Toronto born, Canadian singer-songwriter. He released his debut album “Commercials For Heaven” in the fall of 2021.
Ryan began writing songs as an impulse to get through tough times in Toronto where he was struggling to make films and pay the rent; songs initially meant to only cheer and empower himself until the songs took over and led him onto a new path.
After a 2 month trip to Mexico in the winter of 2015 – where he survived a dangerous encounter with a riptide in Zipolite (“Beach of The Dead”) – he returned to focus solely on music. In 2016 he rolled out to the West Coast of BC in search of mountains, forests, ocean air and musical adventure.
He currently performs as a duo with his girlfriend Sara Wazani who sings backup and plays lead guitar. They played at the 2022 Northwest Folk Festival in Seattle and the 2022 Harrison Hot Springs Bands on The Beach Festival.
Ryan Fischer was recently awarded a busking licence for the city of Vancouver. You can catch him playing for the public on various Skytrain stations throughout the tri-cities. He also plays regularly at local pubs and breweries around the lower mainland.
His songs mix self-deprecating humour with recurring themes of self-doubt and a longing for solace. As a celebration of his own and the world’s collective human flaws, music is Ryan Fischer’s way of coming to a place of jubilant acceptance and inner freedom.
