Singer-songwriter Gran Bel Fisher
's compositions start slowly, but build to sweeping choruses. They even borrow a little from Coldplay both the piano-driven melodies and Fisher's Chris Martin-like falsetto.

(which comes out next month), appropriately reflects the rustic intimacy of his hometown. Fisher is wrapping up a monthlong nationwide tour with some Midwest gigs.
