    Michael Fitzpatrick

    Lead Vocalist & Principal Songwriter, Fitz and the Tantrums

    Michael Fitzpatrick began his career as a studio engineer working with Producer Mickey Petralia, with whom he started a commercial music house called NewMath, with clients including Pedigree, Nissan, Dasani, and Coca Cola. Fitz simultaneously worked on his own music and fulfilled his dream in front of the mic with his band Fitz and The Tantrums. After the 2009 EP Songs for a Breakup, Vol. 1, Fitz and The Tantrums found themselves touring with Maroon 5 and recording their full-length debut, Pickin’ Up the Pieces, which was awarded three-and-a-half stars by Rolling Stone and spent 73 weeks on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart. For their 2013 Elektra Records debut, More Than Just A Dream, Fitz and The Tantrums worked with producer Tony Hoffer and ramped up the timeless song craft and sonic force that made them a worldwide sensation. They have graced our televisions on Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Leno, Conan, and played every major festival in the country.
