Description

Soulful singer-songwriter strangeness
Funky and reflective. Rollicking and real
Compassionate and focused on the human experience.
Destined for the the dusty budget bins of another day to be rescued by some curious future digger

Thanks to all of the lovely friends who took the time to contribute to the making of this album. There are far too many to list and I think the session notes may have been consumed in a fire or flood or wind storm somewhere along the way. You know who you are and you are loved! Thank you!!...


Adam Fitz is a Chicago native blue-eyed soul belter that happens to write obscenely catchy pop rock rather than the throwback soul his full-bodied, crazy preacher, beyond-his-years rasp would have you expect. If Alex Chilton fronted Big Star and still sang like he was in the Box Tops, it might sound something like this. Adam and his band are soulful enough to have opened for Sharon Jones and the Dap- Kings, Syl Johnson and Roscoe Robinson, but are comfy enough in the guitar-pop realm to have opened for Spoon, the Walkmen, and the Smoking Popes.

"Curing Too Much With More" marks Fitz' second studio album and, while maintaining some of the bonhomie of the debut, this outing takes a left turn deep into the manic, paranoid, and fuzzy. Toiled over and taped together over many years in a variety of studios, the eight songs that comprise "Curing" are teeming with funky grease, sing a-longs, fuzzy departures, acoustic goodness and a human perspective that gets to the bottom of all of it. Fitz' songwriting and soulful rasp shine throughout as this song-writer steers into some new and unknown territories.

With a rhythm section drafted from a crack dub band (Chris Merrill and Anthony Abbinanti of the Drastics) and veteran multi-instrumental weirdo Eddie Dixon on keys and guitar, the band moves between soulful pockets and amped up garage rock with ease. Holding it all together is Fitz’s powerful and poignant voice which makes his heart-on-your-sleeve songs red-blooded and real and his party songs an absolute blast.

Fitz often performs behind Alabama legend Ralph “Soul” Jackson as well as renowned poet Marvin Tate and folk-noir Georgia transplant Algebro.


“an honest and often intimate blend of soul, rock and folk.” Tom Lynch New City

“[Fitz has] the same sort of roots-y bonhomie (and sandpapery vocals) that made Rod Stewart's early Mercury albums so appealing.” Bob Mehr Chicago Reader

“a damn fine rock and roll songwriter.” Vocalo.org
