It’s quite easy to label William Fitzsimmons as a sad bastard. In fact, the singer-songwriter who now lives in Jacksonville, Illinois, might even agree with you. He sings in a hushed voice, and his songs are often based on broken relationships and broken hearts. Plus, that beard he sports just makes him look a little lonely, no?
And although today’s JOTD isn’t exactly something you would find playing at a Passion Pit show, it features a wave of electronica elements that warrant an upbeat attitude from the listener. Yes, I realize he’s saying, “Cut me open, please.” Try to smile, anyway.
You can purchase Fitzsimmons’ latest album, Gold in the Shadow, now. And, he’ll be playing at The Firebird in Saint Louis on Sunday, May 1st.
