William Fitzsimmons The Pittsburgh Collection Volumes 1 & 2: Pittsburgh & Charleroi on LP

Pittsburgh is a collection of songs about the city William Fitzsimmons was born and spent most of his life in. The gift of music is something Fitzsimmons credits his mother and his grandmother with passing on to him. In October 2014, his grandmother passed away and during the three days spent putting her to rest, Pittsburgh, the album, was born. The seven songs are in memoriam to her and in remembrance of the city they shared.

Charleroi: Volume 2 is the companion piece to Pittsburgh. Fitzsimmons' father was returned to the hospital as an infant, ill with whooping cough and left there for several months as an orphan. A kind doctor who became his father finally adopted him. Never knowing his birth family it was assumed that mystery would always remain. In 2015, after over 60 years of searching, Fitzsimmons' father's birth family was found. Having been mistakenly told that Fitzsimmons' father died in infancy, the remainder of his biological family never sought him out. Sadly, his mother passed away several years before having a chance to ever see her son again.

The Pittsburgh album was about the grandmother Fitzsimmons knew. Charleroi is about the one he never did. This album brings the two mini albums together for the first time as one stand alone album called The Pittsburgh Collection: Volumes 1 & 2: Pittsburgh & Charleroi. Pittsburgh and Charleroi follows-up Fitzsimmons' 2014 full-length Lions (produced by Chris Walla/Death Cab For Cutie) that debuted at No. 2 on the Top New Artist Albums' chart, as well as Top 5 on the Folk Albums chart.
