William Fitzsimmons - Press 2015

Beloved bearded songwriter WILLIAM FITZSIMMONS has shared the title-track off his forthcoming mini-album Pittsburgh. As reported before the seven-track strong record will feature the first new material since 2014’s Lions. It will be released on May 18 and will be the first of two mini albums the musician will release this year.

FITZSIMMONS on the record: ‘My grandmother, Virginia, died October 15, 2014. She was born and raised in the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The city of my youth. She gave the gift of music to my mother, and, from my mother, was thus passed to me. In that same month I returned home for three days to celebrate Virginia’s life, mourn her passing, and help to lay her body to rest. These seven songs were born from those three days and are in memoriam to her passing and in remembrance of the city we shared. She will be perpetually missed. Until the day we meet again.’
