Review: Mr. Billy Fitzgerald – An Introduction

An Introduction by Mr. Billy Fitzgerald is a lo-fi pop portrait with swaths of 80’s dance music. This multi-instrumentalist impresses with apt musicianship and engaging, exuberant melodies.

Work For It displays this dance music atmosphere with playful pop hooks.

Old Loves, my personal favorite of these tracks, is simply lovely—chorus, melody, and delightful changes.

Give Me A Chance highlights an infectious, bouncy vivacity. It’s danceable tempos with catchy chorus sung with some impressive vocal calisthenics, and hitting some noteworthy falsetto notes.

A bit edgier and grittier, but would still fit nicely on the playlist somewhere between David Gray and Brett Dennen.

Well, Mr. Billy Fitzgerald, it’s been lovely to have been “introduced”. We hope to hear more from you.
