Fern Barishman, native New Yorker, has been making music since she was 7. Although her first love was the accordion, she smartly switched to piano at age 12 and has been playing it ever since.

At 21, she traveled to Hollywood, telling her parents she’d be home in 3 months. Instead, she found herself working on such TV shows as Name That Tune, The Midnight Special, Tony Orlando & Dawn, and The New Soupy Sales Show. After winning an Emmy for Hot Hero Sandwich on NBC , Fern decided to exit stage left, or should we say North, and left Hollywood for the tinier hamlet of Ojai.

Fern plays at a variety of venues and private events in and around Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. She can also be heard in her living room teaching piano to both adults and children.

Fern lives with her 2 chihuahuas, Roxie and PearlieGirl, who you can sometimes hear singing back-up.
