Serenity Fisher's "Winter"

Serenity Fisher & The Cardboard Hearts is a family band in many senses of the phrase, and not just because Michael, who plays cello, is married to the lead singer (pictured in the center here). There are all kinds of family ties that bind this group together, literal and figurative.

The band blends playful pop-rock with a Tim Burton-esque quirkiness, which is especially true on this song. A wordsmith, Serenity coaxes stories into becoming songs by telling her truth, writing lyrics that are especially visual, and melodies that are dreamy. She is a powerhouse singer whose nuanced vocals vary from bluesy belt to sultry whisper, from technical prowess to stripped-down raw emotion. Her piano style is theatrical and passionate. Her music has been compared to Regina Spektor, Tori Amos and Fiona Apple.

She has a background in theatre and enjoys singing jazz, musical theatre and classical pieces. These styles are evident in her original music and have led her to writing numerous musical plays, three of which were voted Audience Pick of the Cincinnati Fringe Festival.

Serenity teaches private piano and songwriting lessons as well as facilitating playwriting and songwriting workshops. When she is not teaching and performing, she does recording session work, plays weddings and other events.
