The Tide Pulls from the Moon

Biography

"The last couple years have been...full (kind of difficult to describe years in a single word). They have been wonderful, painful, long, incredibly brief, and more educational and rewarding than any I've ever lived before.

I finished touring on the previous record feeling very conflicted. The longer I'm given the wonderful opportunity to write and create things, and ... Read more in Amazon's William Fitzsimmons Store

Editorial Reviews

For many years, armed with a Master's degree in counseling from Geneva College, William Fitzsimmons worked as a mental health therapist, and only began recording his songs during graduate school breaks.While previous releases have been a detailed and agonizing retelling of events, Gold In The Shadow is about Fitzsimmons personal regeneration in the aftermath of those experiences. Based on a specific set of psychopathological disorders from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders IV (DSM-IV), Fitzsimmons describes the songs as "a real and long coming confrontation with personal demons, past mistakes, and the specter of mental illness which has hovered over me for the great majority of my life."

This deluxe edition comes with a bonus disc featuring ten more songs unavailable on the regular edition.

You know how it goes: you buy a CD for a song or two that you enjoy & skip past the ones that never seem to grow on you. Well, that isn't going to happen here. This is one helluva good album. Every track pulls the listener into Fitzsimmons' world; spellbound and hanging onto every whispered word. It is at once calming and exciting, normal and extraordinary, pained and peaceful, haunted and hopeful. I cannot say enough good about this album. (I got mine via iTunes to get the bonus tracks. Blood and Bones (a bonus) is worth the jaunt away from Amazon for a moment.)

This type of self-centered confessional music could be an absolute disaster, but in the hands of the prolific William Fitzsimmons, you can forget about the meaning of it all and just enjoy the music, which is engaging, pleasant and light, with wonderful touches throughout. For one thing, you can't hear the lyrics clearly unless you try, he sings in a soft breathy manner that hides the content. "Tide" charms you right off the bat, it would be like Kristin Hirsch made an album as a man, but less urgently than she is as a woman, and every song thereafter maintains the groove, spare, harmonious, lovely. Four albums in a relatively short period of time and he finds nice hooks in every song? This man has music inside of him, by all means check it out, a very accomplished album, a seamless and shimmering listen.

William Fitzsimmons is underrated and relatively unknown but bound to be a cult figure much like Nick Drake. He has crafted an amazing sound all of his own, much like Sufjan Stevens or Alexi Murdoch.

Any recognition, praise or accolade directed at William Fitzsimmons is more than deserved, and probably not nearly enough. The soul-bearing, heart-pouring nature of the lyrics and emotion with which Mr. Fitzsimmons delivers them is nothing short of breathtaking. Every album he's released has been a building progression toward perfection, and his first CD was a masterpiece in itself. Do yourself a favor; buy this CD and the others in his collection of releases, go see him play live (I prefer the intimate setting of him and his guitar), then be amazed. William Fitzsimmons is a wonderful talent.

Love all of William's music. This CD is no exception. There are several songs I like here, including Beautiful Girl and Let You Break.

Once again Fitzsimmons has made an album of beautiful songs. I like the more fleshed-out production touches on this record too. I bought the record for my wife, who loves it, but I am listening to it just as much. Fitz is one of America's true rising stars, and if you haven't seen him live, make sure you do. He is a brilliant showman, excellent acoustic guitarist and all round entertaining performer. We first saw him live in SF a few years ago and were instant fans. His opening act Rosi Golan was fantastic too. Be sure to check her out. Meanwhile, thanks Billy Fitz for the soulful songwriting.

This title describes William to a "T": gold in the shadow. A musician worth his weight in gold but overshadowed by the cheap, dime-a-dozen, mogul backed artists of the day. His music is simple and honest. His voice is soft, soothing, and powerful in it's meekness. His lyrics resonate with me and I could listen to his creations over and over without tiring. I'm so glad I found this gold in the shadow. Buy this album. You won't be disappointed.
