In just a year or so, soulsters Fitz & the Tantrums went from the living room to the main stage. The recipe for meteoric success? Six killer musicians, five dapper suits, irresistible songs, some serendipity and one vintage organ. Since their first show at Hollywood’s Hotel Café in December 2008, Fitz and co. have toured with Maroon 5, played to thousands at Colorado’s world famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre, shared the stage New Year’s Eve with Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, and performed on KCRW’s esteemed show, Morning Becomes Eclectic, all this on the strength of their stellar five-song EP, Songs for a Breakup, Vol. 1. For some bands, it takes a lifetime to build this success, but few performers deliver an unrestrained blast of soul-clapping, get-down-on-the-floor, moneymaker shakers like Fitz and the Tantrums. Now post-release of their debut full length, Pickin’ Up the Pieces, which has since earned them a 3 ½ star album review in ROLLING STONE, the troupe is poised to get down in dancehalls across the universe. Josh Langston is a man of “This is who I Am” merit. With his in your face, take it or leave it attitude, he has been on a road of many twists and turns that fly through his music career without a doubt. His voice carries through a room like a tornado with a cause and if you ever have the chance to run him down and hear a show you will be left with no question of who he is, what he stands for, and a hum that will run through your soul like never before, finding yourself with an addiction to the sound wailing from his mic.Often being called the Steve Earle of his time; his outlaw tune is not your typical commercial jingle lingering from Nashville.
