I don’t go for the crazy heady over-the-top awe of “famous” people. I do, however, admire/appreciate people who seem to have a good head on their shoulders alongside all that talent. As of today, I have great respect for William Fitzsimmons. This is why.

  1. He is a talented musician.
  2. He lists Keith Green as an early influence.
  3. He describes his writing as “arguably inappropriate lyrical self-disclosure.”
  4. He is opening for Brooke Fraser.
  5. He seems to reply personally to fan messages on his myspace site.
  6. He used to work with mentally ill individuals.
