Musician. Performance artist.
Blending elements from a variety of genres and decades, Brian Fitzy falls somewhere between Daryl Hall and Jamiroquai by way of A Tribe Called Quest. A vocalist, electric violinist, guitarist, keyboardist, and beat-boxer, he brings these elements together live with looping technology. The result is soul-pop with undertones from the golden age of hip hop.
Brian's post-college career began with a bang when he performed with the Foo Fighters at the Grammy Awards as a Top 3 finalist in the "My Grammy Moment" competition. That performance garnered him support and features from TV stations such as 6ABC, NBC10, and CBS3 in Philadelphia, as well as prime regional radio coverage. Since then, Brian's career has blossomed as a solo artist and a sideman. He's performed everywhere from dives to Madison Square Garden. He's also earned endorsements from Fishman Transducers, Wood Violins, and Westone. In addition, he's had the good fortune of working with bands he grew up admiring such as Rusted Root and members of the Roots Crew.
Brian Fitzy's latest full-length album, "Hard Times For Dreamers" has been described by Paste Magazine as "a record that acts as a breath of fresh air for anyone tired of generic Top 40 radio singles. Hard Time for Dreamers shows an impressive range and an extraordinary amount of potential. It's a wild, diverse ride and well worth a listen."
