  • Biography Ben Fisher was born clutching a copy of Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited on cassette. Through his middle and high school years, he was ridiculed for listening to John Prine and Joan Baez instead of Nelly and Lil’ Jon. After being hit in the face with a baseball, and consistently being picked last for recess football games, he stopped playing sports and decided that a less aerobic past time was better for him, so he picked up the guitar. On any given day, you may be able to find him busking for loose change in front of the UW bookstore or at the Ballard Farmer’s Market. Chances are, you’ll mistake him for a homeless person.
