William Fitzsimmons To Release Mini-Album (May 12); North American Tour With Denison Witmer Begins On Release Day

On May 12, William Fitzsimmons will release a mini-album titled Pittsburgh, a collection of seven songs about the city where he was born and raised. Fitzsimmons credits the gift of music to his mother, and consequently his grandmother. In October 2014, his grandmother passed away and during the three days spent putting her to rest, Pittsburgh was formed. The seven songs are in memoriam to her and in remembrance of the city they shared.

Yesterday, Fitzsimmons partnered with Guitar World's Acoustic Nation to premiere the official music video for the title track.

Fitzsimmons’ music has also been licensed to a wide variety of networks including ABC, NBC, MTV, Lifetime and CW and he has been featured in Billboard, NPR, Rolling Stone, Wall Street Journal, Paste, Spin, NYLON Guys, Musikexpress, Uncut, Q Magazine and American Songwriter Magazine.
