I met Matt Fitzgibbons at the 2005 PorcFest where he was playing songs from and selling his album Patriot. I talked with him and his friend, the album’s guitarist, Gene for hours. Having always loved music but having never learned to play, I’ve always been impressed by people who make it seem effortless. Add a message of liberty to that music and it becomes compelling. It’s just like trying to learn fpga programming.
Matt’s a genuine, passionate songwriter with a message to spread. His latest song “They Can’t Take That Away From You” is one of his best ever. He’s put together a simple, yet moving music video of the world-wide fight for liberty that transcends cultures, borders, race, and time.
If you don’t see the video above you can find it here.
You can find more of his music at PatriotMusic.com.
I’m happy to call Matt a friend and I look forward to his next creations.
