Biography

Ron Wasserman (aka “Aaron Waters”, aka “The Mighty RAW”), is an American music artist best known for composing the original theme song for Power Rangers (then known as “Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers”), and for the large volume of original songs he also recorded for the series. He also fronts the band Fisher. He is married to Kathleen Fisher and they have a son named Aaron. The Mighty RAW, although wrongly much referred to as a ‘band’, is just an alias for the singer himself.

Being fascinated with music since he was just three years old, he started a rockband in the mid 80s with present day actress E.G. Daily. After the band fell apart in short time he started working for Saban Entertainment 1989 to fill in for one afternoon and eventually stayed there six and a half years. There he scored many shows for Saban, but is probably most recognizable for his work on Power Rangers. Several of Wasserman’s most popular scores and songs were eventually released on a successful concept album (Power Rangers: A Rock Adventure) which linked his music around a variation on the opening episodes of season two “The Mutiny” (except the second track, “Fight”).

Prior to his work on Power Rangers, Wasserman began working for Saban earlier in 1989, and developed scores and co-wrote themes on a regular basis for several of their smaller series, his success with the PR soundtrack led to his work on bigger projects, and he contributed music for Sweet Valley High, VR Troopers, and the animated X-Men series. He left Saban in 1995, citing exhaustion.

After he left Saban in 1996 he started a band with girlfriend Kathy Fisher, whom he later married. The band, Fisher, got the title ‘most downloaded song on the Internet’ in 2000 and has enjoyed a steady stream of success since then.

He also began working on various video game titles with Pink Floyd producer Bob Ezrin, and contributed to DIC Entertainment around the same time. In 1998, his band Fisher contributed a song for the movie Great Expectations. The band would eventually generate 18,000 downloads after they uploaded content from a recent album to MP3 Internet sites, with the song “I Will Love You” receiving the most hits.

After a series of problems regarding CD Shipping, Fisher split from their then-manager and regained their independence, they remain reliable contributors to the world of television and commercial soundtracks, as well as continuing to distribute albums.

Wasserman returned to solo work again in 2005, and even returned to Power Rangers in 2005, composing the theme song for the thirteenth Power Rangers season Power Rangers SPD. News of his involvement reached the fanbase and demo versions of the theme were leaked, infuriating Disney executives. His ties to the fandom may have reinforced their decision not to bring Wasserman back to work on their 2006 season Power Rangers Mystic Force, even though Wasserman pitched two different theme songs for them to use that followed their “rap/hip hop” recommendations for the theme. Wasserman later contributed an instrumental version of his rock theme, as well as scoring work (for free) for a recent Power Rangers fanfilm, titled Celestial Fury.

He remains active with other television and commercial projects, his recent work includes music for America’s Next Top Model.
