"...Fitzgerald’s hard-boiled tales of loners and open spaces, combined with his evocative guitar work, creates an epic sound...not so much country-rock as high desert rock...there is a wind-carved harshness and mystical poetry to the songs..."  ~ Michael McCall

Here are 11 songs to fire your imagination. Saddle up and ride from the windswept American high plains to the desolate terrain of a moonlit Delta night with The Flying Dutchman, The Last Time, Oklahoma Road, Outlaw Blues, Another Sun Goes Down, Straw Dogs, Right Between The Eyes, In These Hills, Your Imagination, and Bonus Track, Seven Keys.

Digitally processed from analog master tapes recorded in Nashville at Sound Emporium Studios A & B, Silverline/Goldline, and Buffalo Way. Remastered to WAV format by Gary Laney at Lakeside Recording Studio in San Angelo, Texas; CD mastering at Buffalo Way. The session personnel are some of Nashville's best, and the performances are outstanding. The Digipak sleeve and production insert card photos were shot on locations for the motion picture, Into The Wild.  Everything comes to you packed inside one of three themed presentation envelopes, sealed and wrapped in a loose, crystal clear bag.

In These Hills is available in CD format at Amazon and CD Baby.

Digital Downloads of single songs or the entire album are available at iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby
