Fishman, who got his start playing the streets of New Orleans and the subways of Manhattan, recently released his 11th album, Uncollected Stories, on his own Monkey Farms label. His confessional songs, which incorporate elements of gospel, rock, blues, folk, punk, and country, have won him rave notices from the Washington Post, the New York Times, and The New Yorker, and he’s appeared on NPR’s “Fresh Air” with Terry Gross and other prominent radio programs.
This is him and his band performing “A Ghost” in 2008:
