Los Angeles, United States (2008 – present)

Fitz and the Tantrums are an American group from Los Angeles, California. The group was founded in 2008 by Michael Fitzpatrick, who had begun writing music for a solo project on an old church organ he had purchased. He added friend James King to the group as an arranger and soon after expanded the band to a seven-piece, including several horns. Fitzpatrick shares the vocal duties with Noelle Scaggs. Other members include Joseph Karnes, Jeremy Ruzumna, and John Wicks.

The group’s debut EP, Songs for a Breakup, Vol. 1, was released in 2009. Dangerbird Records signed the group in 2010 and issued their first full-length album, Pickin’ Up the Pieces, in August of that year. The album reached #15 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. Los Angeles Times music critic Ann Powers wrote, “Fitz & the Tantrums is the kind of band that communicates best in concert, but this album serves as a fine proxy and party-starter.” Aly Comingore of the Santa Barbara Independent wrote that the band members craft “soulful, nostalgia pop that’s not only infectious, but just fresh enough to make it stand apart from its predecessors.”

In 2010 the group opened several dates on tour with Maroon 5. On January 12, 2011, Fitz & the Tantrums performed the songs “MoneyGrabber” and “Don’t Gotta Work It Out” on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live in Los Angeles. In 2010 the groups music video for the song “MoneyGrabber” was incorporated into the opening scene of a sixth season episode of the CBS crime-drama Criminal Minds entitled “Safe Haven”.

    Дебютник отличный, а второй альбом - попса голимая. Я в недоумении.

    'More than just a dream' is throughout an irreproachable album. Best musical discovery of last semester, hands down.

    Spark, The Walker and Get Away are the best of the More Than Just A Dream. Out Of My League is not so good. Because of her, almost stopped listening to their first album which is great.

    One of my favorite bands right now! They fit into the alternative genre but have a unique sound.

    Why is there two's for the same artist? The "&" shouldn't make a difference. It's like the word "The" and it should disregards it. iTunes has it sold and labeled with the & not the and. Regardless, that shouldn't make a difference. So if you download music from iTunes you have to 're-name' your artist then? Well it's good I only scrobbled this artist twice, looks like I'll use the and and not the &.
