Indie troubadour William Fitzsimmons’ first studio CD, ‘The Sparrow And The Crow’, will be released April 7th by leading independent label Downtown Records’ newly launched imprint, Mercer Street.
Fitzsimmons has a haunting sound that evokes references to Iron & Wine, Bright Eyes and Elliott Smith. His forthright album tells the true story of two people who didn’t make it: William conceived ‘The Sparrow And The Crow’ as an apology and a confessional to his former wife…and then set those words to music. The result is a hushed and heartbreaking collection of songs that charts a path from regret to reconciliation.
