Ryan Fitzsimmons' first full-lenth recording since 2004 entitled "Cold Sky" is in the final stages. Help Ryan make it a reality!

I'm nearing completion on my first full-length CD since 2004. The record is being produced by David "Goody" Goodrich (Peter Mulvey, Chris Smither), and recorded at Signature Sounds Studios. Over the last few years my band and I have entered the studio for a series of sessions, yeilding some fantastic results.  Now it is time to bring the record to fruition by mixing and mastering with my production team at Signature Sounds, so that I can release the record this year in it's fully realized form.

Over the past 6 years I've continued to perform throughout the North East. Some highlights include:

  • 2008 Newport Folk Festival - one of 4 selected OurStage artists.
  • 2008 Harpoon UFO Hefeweizen Best Unfiltered Band Top 10 Finalist
  • 2008 NERFA TriCentric Showcase
  • 2007 Best Local Male Vocalist - Providence Phoenix Best Music Poll
  • 2007 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist Showcase
  • 2005 Best Male Vocalist and Best Local CD - Rhode Island Motif Readers Poll
  • 2005 Winner Starbucks/Nemo Emerging Artist
  • “Open All Night” Providence Phoenix Best of 2004

My goal is to raise at least $3000, hopefully more. The funds will be used to pay for studio time scheduled within the coming month to finalize mixing and mastering. They will also cover duplication expenses and help in the initial promotion of the CD. With your help, I can bring this project to life!
