Dublin singer/songwriter Theo Fitzgibbon has released his debut single, “Waterfall” today. Despite the fact that the song is his first solo single, Theo is no stranger to performing – he has played at every major gig venue in Dublin and was previously lead vocalist and songwriter for band League of Nation. “Waterfall” marks the start of a fresh new chapter for Theo Fitzgibbon – listen to it now below.
On the release of his debut single, Theo said, “I am thrilled to be releasing my debut single . Waterfall is a tune I am really proud of, it’s what my music is all about: punchy, catchy music with a belter of a chorus and amazing production, in this case from the incredibly talented Marc Carolan.”
After his time on the gig circuit, Fitzgibbon wanted to hone his craft and went to IMW in London to study music production. Following his time studying in London, Theo took a break from music to attend a treatment centre in Dublin to address some addiction issues. After taking the time and doing the work to change his life’s direction, Theo was ready to start putting all of his energy into his music career.
In his own words, Theo wants to write the kind of pop music that “people can sing when they’re having a few drinks in a kitchen somewhere at 4am”. Fitzgibbon likes to focus on crafting catchy, belting songs that make a huge impact. He has been hugely inspired by Noel Gallagher’s advice to write a f***ing chorus. Theo uses the classic line up of instruments to create these soaring tunes: drums, piano and of course, guitar.
