This was the introductory album from Fighter. Fighter was a new group of musicians from Iowa including husband and wife, Amy and Jim Wolter. Billy Heller, Mark Pence, and Sean Murphy rounded out the lineup. The album has trade off vocals from Amy and Sean and it works well. It’s a good Rock & Roll album that has more of a mid eighties sound than a early nineties sound. Fighter did very well on the independent Christian Rock charts in fact they may have been one of the highest charting introductory bands of the time. If you like your Rock with an arena feel you’ll love this album.

One thought on “Fighter – The Waiting – 1991”
Before her marriage to Jim, Amy Wolter was in a band called Sapphire who released an LP named “Crytal Clear” in 1980. It was a nice pop effort. Amy Swartzendruber (as she then was) is credited with writing five of the 11 songs and co-wrote a sixth one. In 1994, Amy Wolter released an album under her own name, “Hit Me in The Heart.” It’s comparable to Fighter.
