Album: Black Sheep
Written By: Chris Sligh/Ryland Fisher
Produced By: Adam Shoenfeld
A signature sign of a Ryland Fisher track is his relatable recounting of relationships that just feel stuck. In ‘It Is What It Is,’ Fisher wears his heart on his sleeve through an angsty vocal and a steady, R&B-meets-country groove. He brilliantly captures the dichotomy of wanting something so badly to work out—while acknowledging the looming, hopeless writing on the wall. Like a true artist, Fisher can make even the toughest situations something you want to sway and sing along to.
