Released Thursday, 8th May 2014
Good episode? Give it some love!
Radio can be an intimate relationship. The airwaves connect the ideas from one mouth to the ears of another, with only a dial and airwaves in between. Yet this intimate relationship is inherently lopsided–only one side’s expression can be voiced and heard. When a musician steps on stage, however, the intimacy can work both ways. When William Fitzsimmons steps on stage, his beard brushing against the microphone and his four guitars waiting expectantly on stage, he is imploring the audience to join him and meet him halfway. Before a small show at the Englert Theatre in Iowa City, the gentle singer-songwriter sat down with Erasing Boundaries and dug into the art of expressing emotion.
