Funeral Home Upbringing Helps Singer Come Alive

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you’re looking for musical inspiration, you could do worse than hang around a funeral home.

Hey, it worked for singer Gran Bel Fisher, who spent his formative years at his family’s funeral home in Sabina, Ohio.

Fisher – who is part of the Grammy-nominated soundtrack to Grey’s Anatomy – is dead serious when he says the experience helped his songwriting.

As he puts it, “You’re seeing people come and go and experiencing them on the worst day of their lives. It taught me that everybody is the same.”

He learned there are other musical benefits to growing up in a funeral home. In his words, “The acoustics are great.”

Fisher is currently promoting his latest CD, Full Moon Cigarette, but says if the music thing doesn’t work out, he may study to be a mortician himself.
