“A supercool Motown-style combo in the Mark Ronson/Sharon Jones/mid-period-ABC vein…imagine if Amy Winehouse was blonde, male, and sane, and that’s Fitz” Yahoo! Music

“You can practically hear the record needle drop on the scratchy 45 when listening to Fitz and The Tantrums, a stylish retro-styled 60’s pop/soul combo” NBC Los Angeles

“Bringing back all the smooth feel of the Motown golden age with some new bounce. Fitz and his Tantrums are sure to install some smooth soul with a little extra.” IndieRockReviews.com

“Rare Soul mixed with indie that hits you right in the gut and raises you to a new level” FMLY Blog

“They’re one part old, forgotten soul, one part Nuggets, style garage rock, along with a dash of early “She’s Gone” era Hall & Oates. Fitz’s voice has elements of Jack White along with echoes of dozens of forgotten one shot hit makers of 70’s AM gold, and he rarely fails to delight.” A Deeper Shade of Soul

“A soulful voice with infectious songs, Fitz’s music makes you wanna’ grab a tambourine and dance.” Pasadena Magazine

 

It all started with a phone call. The X. Best to let voicemail pick that one up! YOU HAVE 1 NEW MESSAGE: “Hey, sorry to call but my neighbor has got to leave L.A in a hurry, he’s selling everything including this old church organ for 50 bucks. Do you want it?” This was worth the pain of calling the heartbreaker. “He’s got someone coming later today to see it, I don’t know what kind it is, if it works…it’s gigantic “Pay him, pay him now! Put the 50 dollars in his hand!”. “Okay but the landlord says it has to be out of the basement tonight”. 13 phone calls to piano movers and 50 dollars later four guys were trying to fit this thing through the front door. That was the beginning. “Breakin’ the Chains of Love” was written that night and the inspiration for the record was born. All the pain of splitting with someone poured out into this 5 song EP of 1960’s inspired Soul music. SONGS FOR A BREAK-UP VOL.1 was recorded entirely in Fitz’s living room, using one crappy old mic. The songs are influenced by ’67 AM radio, Motown and early Hall and Oates records. Fitz was born in France and moved to L.A. as a child. This half French, half Irish kid fended off the California rays with a lot of sunscreen to emerge as an artist with a vision. A soulful voice with infectious songs, Fitz’s music makes you wanna’ grab a tambourine and dance.

On August 11th, the debut EP, ‘Songs For A Break-Up Vol.1′, will be released on Future Sounds Records digitally on iTunes. The song, “Breakin’ The Chains of Love” was featured as the opening track on the Future Sounds 33 compilation released in June and the EP unveils four new tracks.
