Singer-songwriter and music producer William Fitzsimmons announces a handful of dates that launches February 20th in Solana Beach, CA and heads up the west coast, wrapping February 29th in Portland, OR. Featuring fellow singer-songwriters (& friends) Joshua Radin and Ben Kweller, audiences will experience an intimate evening of acoustic sets in a storytelling-in-the-round setting.

Out now, Fitzsimmons shares his first new recording since last year’s album Mission Bell.  “What Kind of Love Is Like That” is his take on an unreleased Aaron Espe song. 

Ever since my time working in the field of psychology, I’ve always been fascinated by the way in which change occurs in the mind and heart. This is never more apparent than in the area of romantic love. A couple can go from the high of soul mate belief to signing divorce papers in a matter of years. This song, originally by Aaron Espe, hits the nail on the head from the perspective of the one being left. “I was such a fool, thinking I could have you for myself.” Watching joy turn into heartbreak. And realizing the follies we so often make with love,” says Fitzsimmons.

Mission Bell is a chronicling of the tumultuous last year of his life, particularly of the separation from his second wife. An initial version of the album was originally recorded in Fitzsimmons’ home studio in the summer of 2017 but was subsequently abandoned during the course of, and as a result of, the separation.  The process and the results are both painful and healing, but also respect the complexity of humans, especially at their worst. The album includes songs about betrayal, but also reconciliation and forgiveness. Choosing to go deeper than mere absolutism and fate, these are stories of people doing their best, but still managing to often destroy each other in the process.
