Indie-folk artist Jared Fiske is celebrating the release of his new album, We’re Already Gone (CD included with each ticket purchased). A longtime performer in the central MA area, Fiske’s award-winning songwriting is front and center on his latest release. Mark Erelli says of Fiske’s new album, “With double-tracked vocals, acoustic guitars, and layers of subtle atmospheric textures, [Fiske] draws you into these richly detailed vignettes, while never forgetting the power of a catchy chorus. Listen to this one on headphones and you can thank me later.” Victor Infante of Worcester magazine says “There’s really no way to prepare oneself for how achingly beautiful and melancholy Jared Fiske’s new album, “We’re Already Gone,” is.”
