My best friend guided my thirsty ears to William Fitzsimmons because of his moving lyrics and phenomenal life story. For those who listen to Nick Drake, Elliott Smith, and Sufjan Stevens – I may venture to say, that ole William Fitzsimmons surpasses them all. His new album – his third, The Sparrow and The Crow is not as good as his first album, Until When We Are Ghosts, in my humble opinion, but – still very good. For those of you in Illinois, he will be performing in the Pygmalion Music Festival (what a witty name. not.) along with RJD2, Autolux, and Iron & Wine.
So, check him out however you listen to music, be that pandora, last.fm, grooveshark, hypem.com, or elbo.ws because I have gone ahead and checked to see if he is available on all of those different portals.
And You’re Welcome.
