ISLANDS IN PARADISE April 2016
EXCERPT: If one closes one’s eyes and absorbs the ten tracks on Islands In Paradise, I would imagine one might easily envision the sandy beaches, the colorful flora and fauna, and of course the abundant nightlife of St. Lucia, the Cayman’s, St Kitts, St Marten, or Barbados, to name just a few of the Caribbean Islands. Let Michael Fitzsimmons guide you on a “virtual” vacation to a land of no worries, lush vegetation, warm days and starlit nights, as you let your stress melt and hair down. It’s all good, mon. Have fun and embrace all the joy and happiness that life has to offer in the “Islands.”

SKIN ON SKIN
Powerful selections from musical canvases and stories.
LIGHT IN THE VILLAGE
This album will take you to many warming fires, exotic villages and inner locales---wherever rhythm rules.
This album is a victory in spirit, vibrating with hope and life.
WATER FLOWS OVER ME
Review for Water Flows Over Me
“Fitzsimmons has discovered a new hand percussion instrument, the hang, a metal object that has a sound resembling a cross between a steel drum and a kalimba. After just one playing, I was convinced that this CD was the crowning achievement of Fitzsimmons’ career so far.
