A dusky tenor can't disguise Andy Fitzpatrick's reinforced Dublin accent; it's edges are hardened by more than a decade spent in New York. Yet Fitzpatrick's debut album, a short collection of songs that relies solely on that voice and his piano, is not a singer-songwriter's diasporic lament. It is the sound of a lounge pianist, long after closing time, with a husky whisper of soft regret and warm nostalgia. Written with Will Merriman (Fitzpatrick has made several guest appearances with The Harvest Ministers), songs such as Ungrateful Lover or the bittersweet It's Been a Long Time sound old beyond their years, accompanied by sympathetic creaks from the instrument. Little variety in tone or tempo can render it indistinct at first, but on both Dancin' and Fifth Avenue the stretch of Fitzpatrick's imagination and his sharp way with a lyric reveals more with each listen.
