Life treats keyboardist Kirk Fischer well. During the 70’s he was touring and recording in various bands for almost 10 years. Later he took a job in a piano and organ store, where he met his wife Carol. He put music on hold and pursued education, business, and family. Playing music was not a job anymore and just for fun. Today he works as Associate Professor of Accounting at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor.
During the late 90’s he started performing on weekends and recording in his own home studio. Over the past twenty years he produced some projects and performs today in the locally popular band Touch of Class. Through a kickstarter support for East Bay Soul 2.0 he came in contact with Greg and Andrea Adams.
Greg returned the favor and produced and arranged Kirk’s debut album Friends, which is scheduled for release in February. While Kirk plays the keys, he is surrounded by the following musicians: Herman Matthews (drums), Kay-Ta Matsuno (guitar), Dwayne “Smitty” Smith (bass), Johnny Sandoval (percussion), Greg Adams (trumpet, flugelhorn), Lee Thornburg (trumpet, flugelhorn, trombone), Greg Vail (sax) and the ROQ Goddess String Quartet.
