We’ve Got a Live One Rock fans know it can be hard for struggling artists to make it in the modern music industry, but independent singer-songwriter John Fishell recently did the impossible – he released his first ever live album, the breathtaking We’ve Got a Live One. The album, recorded in June 2020 at the Wreckingroom Studio in Lyons, Colorado and officially released on January 15, 2023, offers a unique insight into Fishell’s creative process.
His signature mix of high-energy rock, heartfelt emotion, and impressive musicianship sets the stage for an amazing live session. At just 45 minutes, the album is brief but packs a powerful punch. From the Foo Fighter-esque tracks Here’s Looking at You and God Save the Queen, to the AC/DC-influenced Hells Bells and the 80s and 90s rock-inspired Pushing and Pulling, Fishell manages to masterfully demonstrate his writing and performance chops.
The veteran rhythm section of Brian McRae on drums and Mario Pagliarulo on bass add an extra depth to the sound, and Fishell himself shows his diversity as he shifts between searing guitar solos, soaring vocals, and tight, well-crafted songs. We’ve Got a Live One is a must-listen for any fans of mainstream rock music. Fishell has created something special here, and he shows no signs of slowing down. Be sure to give this album a chance and you won’t be disappointed.
