Fitz's original material is fleshed out, embellished with frequent bandmate, Ken Clark, an explosive and rhythmic Hammond B-3 artist. Their collaboration is so natural. The two "have no brakes" their approach to this music is infused with natural spark.
Fitz has grown up in the Blues tradition. He has a sensibility that Blues lovers can relate to. His songs are tales of a musician who has lived the Blues on the road for many years, working 7 days a week, gaining dedicated fans in audiences from all over New England to Europe and from Memphis to California.
The listener is at once lifted up by his ethereal Blues and then pitched back down into the rocky road of reality, all the while thrilling to the virtuosity of this masterful guitar player. Fitz's talent spans the collection of Blues styles. He can offer a sweet Delta style finger picking tune then break into a strong, muscular sound. The next moment his sound is quite tender and haunting and he can swing with the best of them! He is a consummate entertainer.
