Interview: Ian Fischer talks meaning behind new song "tell ya"


Ian Fischer is a Miami-based artist to be on the lookout for. His music can be described as uptempo mixed with chill/pop type of music, where he fully knows how to express himself and tell stories that his audience can relate to. While he's a newcomer to the music game, his talent speaks for itself and it's a fact that he has something to say on every record that he puts out.


Fischer is definitely a talented artist and his newest single "tell ya" reflects all the hard work he's been putting in. "Tell ya" is a song about a girl who he never got to express his feelings to after having a summer fling with her. She ends up leaving for school and Fischer sings about wanting to tell her how he felt about her.


Some of Fischer's musical influences are John Mayer, Adam Levine (Maroon 5), Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam), Elton John, Coldplay, and Charlie Puth, and it's clear to see in his music how his inspirations contribute to his sound.

What city are you from/ Where are you based now?

I am from New York and am now based out of Miami, FL. I am attending the frost school of music at the University of Miami.


What is your artist's name? What is your real name? How did you get your artist name?

My artist name is my real name, Ian Fischer! Nothing too crazy about how I got my name.


How would you describe your sound to readers who may not be familiar with you?

My music is a mix of uptempo and chill pop music. My most recent singles have been more uptempo compared to some of my unreleased music that is a chiller vibe, and shows the different styles my voice can cover.


What’s one reason you are passionate about music, and what inspires you?

Music has been my passion my entire life, and now I am at the age to create music that can relate to people and inspire my fans to listen to the lyrics of my music because there is a story behind everything.


Who are some of your main musical influences?

My main musical influences are John Mayer, Adam Levine (Maroon 5), Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam), Elton John, Coldplay, and Charlie Puth.


Tell us the name of the project you are currently promoting? What inspired this project?

My new single is called "tell ya." This project is about having a summer fling with someone and wishing it turned out to be more (a relationship) rather than her going off to school and not being able to tell her how I feel.


What’s next for you? Are you working on any upcoming projects we should be on the lookout for? Include some dates if you have them.

I'm working on a bunch of new singles that will drop over the next couple of months. I will also be releasing an EP or Album by the end of 2022!


What message do you hope fans take away from your music and this project?

The message I want to create for my fans is to follow your dreams because if you put the time and work in, the results will start coming slowly but surely. The second message I hope to create is to help my fans get through certain times in their life by listening and relating to my music. I try to create an uptempo vibe for most songs, even if they aren’t about the best story.
