One on One with: Fitzgerald

I recently had the chance to interview a charismatic upcoming artist from New Haven, Connecticut.
Fitzgerald is an intrinsic artist on the rise. As a child he knew being a musician was his destiny. “I’ve always been into the arts, when I was in diapers I’d be dancing all over the place.” He recollected. The 23 year-old made the move to Atlanta a few years back where he briefly attended Morehouse and began forging his musical journey.
I was able to preview some new music and a visual from Fitz and I am absolutely in love with the melodies. CaliforniaKingDreamin’ and Thinking About You are both personal inquisitions for a good time of lust, maybe even love. However, the two tunes differentiate as Thinking About You is more about infatuation and CaliforniaKingDreamin’  is a memory of love, the wish to return to it and a potential future.

Of course I had to see if a special someone inspired these songs. “I am currently single like a dollar bill! “Thinking About You” was inspired by someone I am currently chatting with but it’s nothing deep as of now.” He explained. So, lucky for anyone who’s interested, Fitz is still on the market. The soulful songwriter says: “I write from a very fluid standpoint. When I say that, I mean I want my music to be for both him and her. Life is a general experience and my music reflects as such. I write for those who can identify with self-acknowledgement and accepting their actions right or wrong.” He makes it easy for a true R&B lover to get lost in his music.
The fashion forward singer has a unique look to fit his standout sound. Fitzgerald attributes Pharrell Williams for his style inspo.
R&B’s contending front runner has been influenced by Pharrell, 3 Stacks, Carl Thomas, Frank Ocean, and Eric Bellinger. Fitz aspires to become a mogul and share his talents with the with the world.

Unbeknownst to us all, Solange had been working on her now No. 1 album, A Seat At The Table, for eight years before surprisingly releasing it on September 30, 2016. A Seat At The Table was well received by music fans worldwide. It’s evident that Solange took her time and crafted every melody. She shares the intimate songwriting process and jam sessions in this mini-movie “Beginning Stages.” Take a look below.
