[Indie Folk] William Fitzsimmons – Fortune (Acoustic)

William Fitzsimmons
Fortune (Acoustic)

Chicago-based singer/songwriter William Fitzsimmons has recently released his Acoustic Sessions EP, in which consists of the unplugged version of four songs off his “Lions” album. Among these gems we have the acoustic version of “Fortune”, where Fitzsimmons gives an excellent display of his musical genius through minimal instrumental.

Taking away the electric guitar, the fast-paced drums, the harmonizing female vocals and replaced them with melodic acoustic fingerpicking, the bearded musician provides a stripped-down, naked and more emotionally driven version of the song. His under the breath singing is similar to Joshua Radin‘s whisper-rock style, but it surely amuses us how much this tune contributes to the audience with just his voice and a guitar. His voice is too soothing for words so go give it a listen, but we definitely want to see what other tricks William Fitzsimmons got hidden in that giant beard of his.
