Growing up in the musical melting pot of New Orleans, local harpist Patrice Fisher was surrounded by the sounds of jazz from every angle. She admits playing the harp felt natural to her, but she wanted to incorporate a mixture into her style of music.

“I was lucky to fall in love with a Guatemalan musician and videographer (Carlos Valladares, percussion), so we travel to Latin America a lot. All these influences come together to make the music that I write,” Fisher says.
