Jeremy Fisher Announces Goodbye Blue Monday 10th Anniversary Tour

A lot can change in 10 years and nothing is more true for Jeremy Fisher.

Now an award-winning artist, sought-after producer and dad, it’s easy to forget that a decade ago this troubadour released his career-changing album, Goodbye Blue Monday. Home to one of Fisher’s top charting singles  “Cigarette,” Goodbye Blue Monday laid the foundation for his first of 3 JUNO Award nominations (New Artist of the Year, Adult Alternative Album of the Year (2)).

It also saw Jeremy work with Hawksley Workman, tour extensively throughout Canada, Australia and the USA, where he appeared twice on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

In celebration of the album’s 2007 release, Fisher will release a limited vinyl re-mastered anniversary edition of the record.
