‘The Sparrow And The Crow’, the third album from Illinois-based William Fitzsimmons’ will be released in the UK on December 7th 2009. The Boston Herald described the album as “a near masterpiece” and iTunes US voted it as the Folk Album Of The Year, and it now deserves to be brought to the attention of British music lovers!
The divorce of William Fitzsimmons’ blind parents’ was so traumatic he wrote an album about it. The recording of that album (debut ‘Goodnight’) in turn proved so harrowing it precipitated the breakup of his own marriage, which the ex-psychotherapist has documented on this album, ‘The Sparrow And The Crow’. The two albums are intertwined Fitzsimmons explains, “I intentionally connected the two records because they’re different chapters of a similar book.”
