William Fitzsimmons

Before earning comparisons to Iron & Wine and Sufjan Stevens with his hushed, eclectic folk music, singer/songwriter William Fitzsimmons honed his skills in Pennsylvania. Born in Pittsburgh to two blind parents, both of whom were living-room musicians, he began playing piano and trombone in elementary school and taught himself guitar as a junior-high student. Over time, he also learned to play banjo, melodica, ukulele, and mandolin. While pursuing a master's degree at Geneva College, Fitzsimmons began tracking some of his songs on home recording equipment. These self-produced recordings were compiled together and released as 2005's Until When We Are Ghosts, a strong debut album that appeared during Fitzsimmons' time working as a mental health therapist.

Over time, Fitzsimmons began to attract a following on MySpace. Of course, it didn't hurt that his songs started showing up on various television soundtracks, too, including Grey's Anatomy, General Hospital, Life of Ryan, and Army Wives. A second self-produced album, Goodnight, appeared in 2006, influenced heavily by his parents' divorce during his childhood. By this point, Fitzsimmons had settled on a distinct sound: a gentle mixture of folk-rock and electronica applied to carefully written (and often autobiographical) songs that, at their best, delivered a quiet emotional punch. He carried the theme of divorce into his first official studio album, 2008's The Sparrow and the Crow, which dealt with a recent split with his wife. Released in 2010, Derivatives lightened things up by focusing on electronica remixes of his past work (as well as a cover of Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl"), and 2011's Gold in the Shadow found Fitzsimmons confronting his demons with help from guest artists like Julia Stone. Lions arrived early in 2014. ~ Steve Leggett & Andrew Leahey, Rovi

You have to live it in order to write it as Fitzsimmons does. I know. I'm diving head first into that dark pool.

@kelley229 if you're not opportunisti c , you will lose at life. :)
First time listening to this song, i like what im hearing :)
His music is all I want to listen to at all times of the day.
mrod141, you're a nimrod
two blind parents? wow. his song. I Don't Feel It Anymore is just amazing. My god.
Makes me happy that I can discover great music like Will from Pandora; Don't think I would have come across this music without it :)
He's so overlooked and, like a lot of talent, not well known. It's unfortunate because this is the kind of music people need to listen to so they can repel all the stupid things they hear.
Love that Raspy voice, great songwriting and arrangement. The Pink Ganther Remix is phenomenal

i don't judge blah, just simply two thumbs up
what a f**king opportunisti c douche bag, this guy.
Good morning, Will!
simply gorgeous!!
I adore his voice ... Its so calming . <3
