William Fitzsimmons is one of the oddest people you will ever meet.

I was listening to my "recommended" radio station on yesterday and came across a guy named William Fitzsimmons.  I enjoyed his music a lot, so I decided to check out his website.  I cam across this awesome biography:
William Fitzsimmons is one of the oddest people you will ever meet. Born the youngest child of two blind parents, William was raised in the outskirts of the steel city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Due to the family's inability to communicate through normal visual means, William's childhood home was filled with a myriad of sounds to replace what eyes could not see. The house was suffused with pianos, guitars, trombones, talking birds, classical records, family sing-a-longs, bedtime stories, and the bellowing of a pipe organ, which his father built into the house with his own hands. When his father's orchestral records were not resonating through the walls, his mother would educate him on the folk stylings of James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, and Simon & Garfunkel.
His music is somewhat odd, but definitely pleasing to the ears.  Check him out.

  1. This is how I found WF also. He is odd but in a good way.
    I also found AM who is also odd not just in initials and the fact he never will tell people his name. I love his music. He can't be googled if you still use that or he is on i like Temporary One, Losing You, Pulling Triggers, I Want Someone. love your blog
