Fitzgerald is a polished songsmith who is high atop a field of great artists breaking through to festivals and folk concerts throughout the states... He is a tender songwriter who composes with a flair and golden heart, seeking out faith over all obstacles and the burning flame of hope; his songs really take you on a journey - Performer Magazine
Fitzgerald has a knack for an evocative melody, as evidenced on the soothing "Let's Go Down To Memphis," the lilting duet "Melinda Down The Line," and the strikingly magisterial "The Devil You Know." The lyrics are often transcendent, as on "Walks Like Tussaud," which is evocative of Leonard Cohen. Fitzgerald is a talent to be reckoned with. - The Noise
No Time To Be Tender is stripped down, understated brilliance. The songs here are so good, it will take many well spent hours listening to them just to figure out how good. - The Alternate Root
