"Listen" is the feature song on the film "V: The Legacy of Sheila Varian"

TWO AWARD WINNING SONGS on this CD

"LISTEN": 2013 WMA Song of the Year

"STILL THERE":2014 Western Writers Of America Spur Award Best Song of the Year

Review by Western Horseman Magazine:

     "The latest CD release from singer-songwriter Juni Fisher gets to the heart of the horse-human bond and takes listeners on a musical journey celebrating stock horses and the people who ride them.

     The journey begins on the CD cover, where Fisher writes: “The true horsemen and women who listen to this album may be inspired to laugh, cry, and share the word. Those who do not fully understand may seek to learn more, and for that, the horses of the world are celebrating.”

     Listeners are treated to 11 traditional Western songs with a horse related theme, six of which are written by Fisher. In three of the songs, cowboy poets Waddie Mitchell and Diane Tribitt join Fisher.

     The title track “Listen” has a natural horsemanship message of tuning into a horse and trying to see things from its perspective. The fourth track, “Fillinic” is a tribute to the legendary Quarter Horse mare who started a cow-horse dynasty, while track seven, “Patrick,” written by Mike Beck, honors Bill Dorrance and one of his bridle horses. Track eight, “Cuttin’ Horse Pen,” is an upbeat anthem dedicated to those who compete in cutting.

     Before her music career ignited, the award-winning entertainer spent her early years training horses and working on ranches. Even though she now spends most of her time on the road performing, she still gets horseback as often as she can. Her knowledge of and sensitivity to the horse come through in her lyrics, and anyone who knows horses can tell they were written from personal experience. As much autobiographical as it is entertaining, the CD is perfect to play in the barn, in the truck, or at home."

Jennifer Dennison, for Western Horseman

 

"Juni returns to her equine roots with 11 emotional and thought-provoking songs about horses and horse people. Farriers, trainers, reiners, bridle horses, racers, cutters, and mustangs are all presented as only a lover of equus caballus can. You can almost smell the dust and sweat."

American Cowboy Magazine, August/September 2013

If you do not have Juni Fisher's new CD "Listen" you are missing out on a wonderful music experience. I am just able to listen to the song "Fillinic" without tears but I still get a lump in my throat. It brings back memories of horses or any pet that was dear to you and if you knew Greg you can just see him and Fillinic riding at night. If you have never been on a horse "Ride With Your Heart Open" will make you a rider. "Cuttin Horse Pen" makes you laugh and lets you experience what it is like to show a horse. There is not one song that you will not fall in love with. I know a great singer needs a great producer like Dave Martin and you both did an amazing job.

You need to purchase this amazing CD and if you have never met this talented singer/songwriter/horsemen you need to come to the Monterey Cowboy Poetry & Music Festival in December.

Dee Dee Garcia White, Monterey Cowboy Poetry and Music Festival.

Juni is Juni. You know going in that a new CD from her will be well worth your investment and time. But this time there is one more aspect that is worth both. Read oll of the liner notes before hearing a note of it.

     Up to now, Juni has shown us events, characters, new directions, history, and inspirations. In this release, more than ever before, she shows us heart. "Listen" subtitled "to the horse" was born from her own rediscovery of Vitamin Equine. In her writes and co-writes with Waddie Mitchell and Diane Tribitt as well as her covers of Mike Beck's "Patrick" and the old standard "Stewball," Juni explores the fact that horse sense may well rank somewhere above even common sense, and at least three of our five senses as well.  "Hearing" is one we most need to employ with a horse, with "Touch" ranking a close second...Just "Listen!!" It's another fine one from Her Ladyship. Eleven tracks total.

Rick Huff, Western Way Magazine

 

"Before I listened to Juni Fisher's new album, "LISTEN to the Horse", I was thinking, there's no way she can keep producing outstanding albums, one after another. After all, 9 of the 11 songs were written or co-written by her....that requires creativity, dedication and craftsmanship. Boy, after listening to her new album, I have to admit I was dead wrong!! She pulled off another winner. Kudos also to Dave Martin, producer. The title song is worth the price of the CD. It has a great, solo guitar back up by Tom Britt, who must have played in a Salvation Army band at one time....that is a positive. The two selections co-written by Miss Juni and Waddie are classic poetry in song....."Still There" and a reprise of "Who They Are", which should be in everone's collection....superb!! "Night Hawk" a collaboration with poet Daine Tribett is also a winner. The concept album provides a look into Juni Fisher's soul as she's been transparent in sharing how she had to get over the memory of a terrible horse wreck and get back in the saddle again. The last song "Ride with Your Heart Open" depicts overcoming the wrecks that come along now and then to those of us who love God's greatest creation, next to woman. Chalk up another victory for Juni......I shouldn't have doubted her! Go buy her new album and see her in person. You'll be glad you did!" Gary Brown, Venue owner, Mavericks Roasting Company, and founder of the Monterey Cowboy Poetry Festival

"The main title of Juni Fisher's latest recording, Listen, is deceptively spare. Even before you listen to the dazzling music, the engaging liner notes draw you into into her world and the unique experience of the project; you're listening before a note is played. You follow her journey and learn how she came to listen to her own heart in a greatly healing way. What results are songs—from blues to ballads that are deep, moving, exhilarating, and complex—with a singular passion: the horse.
Along with her own outstanding compositions, there are collaborations with poets Waddie Mitchell and Diane Tribitt; a cover of Mike Beck's iconic "Patrick"; and the traditional "Stewball."
A "warning" on CD states, "The true horsemen and women who listen to this album may be inspired to laugh, cry, and share the word. Those who do not fully understand may seek to learn more, and for that, the horses of the world are celebrating..." In short: everyone should listen.
Produced by Dave Martin, the music is flawless. Carolyn Martin joins in on Harmonies in the title track. Jeri Dobrowski of Lamesteer Publishing & Graphics designed the attractive package, which includes a photograph by California's Cindy Stout Quigley.

Margo Metagrano, CowboyPoetry.com


Juni Fisher takes the willing horseman and woman on a journey that enters the essence and heart of horsemanship: the deep connection between horse, and those humans willing to look for it.

In the empathetic title track “Listen” the horse implores the rider to tune in to what is going on, the honoring of the work of the farrier in “For Want of a Nail,” and then the eerily prophetic look at the treatment of America’s native people in Mitchell and Fisher’s “Still There,” one would feel that they know where this is going, but the easy going sound of “Fillinic,” written about the great mare that created the Greg Ward dynasty in the reined Cow Horse world will carry the listener along ‘til the last verses, and then deliver a hard hitting message that is sure to linger in the heart of horsemen.

“Fly Without Leaving the Ground” is as autobiographical as Fisher has ever written, we get a glimpse into what she had and almost lost, and then regained, and “Stewball” was a childhood favorite of hers. Juni loved Mike Beck’s fine tribute to Bill Dorrance and his bridle horse “Patrick,” and “Cuttin’ Horse Pen” is destined to be the national anthem of cutting horse riders and enthusiasts.

Poet Diane Tribitt shared her wonderful poem “Song of the Nighthawk,” and Fisher found a hauntingly beautiful way to give it a musical voice. “Who They Are” was one of the first songs Fisher and Mitchell wrote together several years ago, and was a perfect fit to honor horsemen and women. The final track, “Ride With Your Heart Open” celebrates the horsemen of the world who are willing to help people understand their own unique, and ever evolving connection with horses. This is an album for horses and the humans who dedicate their lives to them. Listen...you will understand.

"An epic journey, an historical masterpiece, featuring Juni's Great Grandfather... Juni's finest storytelling through song ever"

Sedalia Colorado was the birthplace of Juni's maternal Grandmother, and the scene of successes and heartbreaks for her Grandmother's father, John E. Overstreet. Juni set out to uncover a long kept family secret, about John's first family: his wife and child who shared a ranch and life with him.
From his birthplace in Missouri, to long cattle drives as a teenager, to his first marriage and child on a historic Colorado ranch, John Overstreet lived his dream as a cowboy, leaving an indelible and still present mark on Sedalia. Songwriting legend Ian Tyson sent Juni his "Range Delivery," and writer of "Old Double Diamond," Gary McMahon contributed "Waitin' For Spring". Top Producer Rich O'Brien added incredible guitar and mandolin, as well as his keen ear for production. Patty Clayton's beautiful harmonies are perfect throughout. If you love storytelling through song, and want to experience a classic journey, buy this for yourself and your family members.
"Juni's new CD is absolutely the best she's ever done ! Call it luck that started a personal search for the true story about her family. Call it brilliant that she'd put the pieces together into a cohesive story-line. Call Rich O'Brien's production efforts masterful (and superb harmony from Patty Clayton is only part of the magic) !" Bill Barwick, AWA Male Performer of the Year, The Voice of the Encore Western Channel.

Here is Juni's highly acclaimed first album, full of stories in song about the folks who made their way west. From Irish immigrants to the Chinese laundry-man/opium dealer, from an aging, whisky sodden Calamity Jane to a nervous, trigger happy Barney Fife of a sheriff, a whining sodbuster to the cow who becomes her only friend, from a happy to be alive Cavalry mule to a grieving Cavalry widow, they are all here. Juni's follow ups to Marty Robbin's "ElPaso" and to the comical "Sierry Peakes" are works of lyrical art. It's the history of the American west like you have never heard it before.
