New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Fitzpatrick who has led Milwaukee's Dave Fitzpatrick Band for decades will release his first major solo work entitled "Parachutes in Hurricanes" on Daystorm Music. Known for his production résumé, musician/engineer/producer Gary Tanin (Jack Spann, Sam Llanas, Roger
Powell, Daryl Stuermer) was recruited to collaborate on Fitzpatrick's solo opus due to arrive April 27th.
Nearly three years in the making, many musicians provided their artistry along with core members of David's band. Fitzpatrick and Tanin spent countless session hours crafting the melodies and arrangements that resulted in the compositions on the album. "It was an extensive undertaking that could only have been steered by this songwriter's single-minded passion for perfection," explains producer Gary Tanin, "It took David's uncompromising excellence, courage, persistence, and dedication to the art form. I'm extremely proud of our achievement."
Under the eagle eye of veteran engineer Ric Probst, Planet Green Productions recorded the entourage at Tanner-Monagle, Inc. Guest musicians included Jack Spann, Jazz Guitar legend Dick Eliot, Dave Schoepke, Michael Koch, Ethan Bender, Saxophonist Luke Lilla, and Dave Fitzpatrick Band members Paul Noeske, Gerry Ochoa, Craig
Brog and Tom Buckley.
"Fitzpatrick's vocalizing comes on like Metallica's James
Hetfield raised on an aural diet of John Mellencamp
and The Smithereens tops off a sound at once reassuringly familiar and yet currently unique." Jamie Lee Rake - Shepherd Express
A "spiritual restlessness" in a body of work that represents a life's worth of insight, "Parachutes in Hurricanes" balances joy and darkness expressing down-to-earth emotion packed with heartfelt examinations of love and life that every person can relate to.
The album releases April 27th in digital formats and June 8th in physical formats through Daystorm Music. Available digitally on 04/27 via iTunes, Amazon or CD Baby.
