Brothers Phillip and Lindsay Hough started The Fishermen Band in the late 90's, and for the last 20 + years the band has toured and performed extensively, and supported some big names in music. Though they wrote in completely different styles, the Hough brothers music blended well and was always centered around vocal harmonies. During the course of their career they sold out shows at LA's iconic stages, haunted SXSW venues in Austin Texas, performed at popular New York City dives, graced DCs most infamous clubs, appeared on radio and television, and played countless Colleges, Fundraisers, and Festivals in between. The band came full circle and planted a flag in 2008, setting a foundation permanently in Washington DC, adding new and talented members. Many of the areas top musicians revolved in and out of the line up in support over the years.
Current members; Drummer Chris Compton and Bassist Brian Waitzman, helped to evolve the bands sound into a rock/funk/reggae/folk fusion, known for dramatic dynamics, upbeat dance-worthy tunes, and stunning three part harmony. The band does not support streaming services. We urge you to buy and download direct from the band on this website. Over the years while others posted their music to iTunes, TFB opted to self-print unique collectible CD's en masse for every single show they played starting in 2004, bearing the title of the show, date, and occasionally the signatures of the band members. They had guest artists sit down and draw unique designs on each CD cover by hand. Thousands of variations of their CD's flooded cities like Los Angeles, New York, Austin, and the entire DC area. Until 2017, outside of their hit single "Someday" and first iTunes album release "Vision" (2009), you could only get Fishermen Band music at one of their shows. After 2017 the band was forced to go to digital publishing due to technology evolution. Available exclusively here at TheFishermenBand.com for download.
