Naked to the World recorded five CDs, was awarded Acoustic Band of the Year by the National Academy of Songwriters, and even got a little national airplay. In the 1990s, they toured extensively in a van that broke down all the time, which was documented in the song "Nowhere Else But Here".

Naked to the World is primarily a vehicle for singer-songwriter Kevin Fisher's literate and melodic folk songs. A former rock & roll junkie with a degree in English literature who converted to folk music because he thought it would be a more sensitive medium for his poetic lyrics, Fisher started his career as a solo performer and a staff songwriter for a Nashville publishing company. It was not until 1993, when Fisher was approached by Daryl S., a violinist with training in classical, jazz, and folk music and connections to the Turtle Island String Quartet, that Naked to the World was born. The band's self-titled debut focused on the collaboration between the two artists.
