Album artwork for Covers Vol 2 by William Fitzsimmons

Illinois-based producer and renowned troubadour William Fitzsimmons releases the second part to his covers series. What better way to tell a musician’s story than through the songs that formed them. Listen to William with his hushed version of Billy Joel’s “Vienna,” and the Christine McVie-penned “Hold Me,” originally released by Fleetwood Mac. His bright guitar tones are complimented by string arrangements written and performed by friend and longtime collaborator Abby Gundersen.

Listeners are also treated to stirring renditions of classics like Bruce Springsteen (“Streets of Philadelphia”), James Taylor (“Fire and Rain)” and Peter Gabriel (“In Your Eyes”), as well as indie gems from Radiohead (“Weird Fishes”), JP Saxe (“A Little Bit Yours”), and Manchester Orchestra (“Sleeper 1972”). Also incuded are some unexpected offerings like Jeremy Zucker (“Scared”), Del Amitiri (“Tell Her This”), and Go West (“King of Wishful Thinking”).
