Fitz-the-Tantrums Fitz & The Tantrums

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'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.
