Singer / Songwriter
Australian country music singer Shea Fisher not only sings about country life, she lives it. The daughter of bull riding and bareback riding champion Eddie Fisher, and champion barrel racer Joanne Fisher, Shea grew up on the rodeo circuit. In 1998, ten-year-old Shea and her family moved to America. Her father was competing on the Professional Bull Riding circuit, and when Shea saw Pam Minick at the PBR events, her whole world changed.
“I used to stand in front of the mirror with my hair brush and practice interviewing my toys like I saw Pam do on TV with the cowboys. I knew I wanted to do that one day.”
Fast forward twelve years, Shea has fulfilled that dream and then some. In 2007, at the age of sixteen, Shea signed a record deal with ABC Music. She released her debut album, titled “Everyday Girl” the same year. Shea has two #1 songs from her first album at just age 17. On the release of her second album self titled “Shea” she continued to have another two #1 songs in Australia.
Now based in Nashville, Tennessee and Weatherford, Texas, she has worked on several TV networks and is the face of multiple international western brands.
After the release of her first album, Shea toured throughout Australia, was the most requested artist on CMC, sold the most albums of any new country artist, and had more #1 songs than any new country artist that year. Shea has had four #1 songs in Australia and a CMT Top 20 song in the United States.
Following the success of her first album, Shea released a second album, self-titled ‘Shea’, in 2009, and this led to her signing with a US record label. Shea’s music inspiration comes from all areas of her country life, and she loves nothing more than saddling up her horse and going for a ride to clear her head.
“I wouldn’t trade my country roots for anything. I am proud of who I am. The sky is the limit if you dream big and believe in yourself, when people tell me I can’t achieve something it makes me work harder.”
