Ian Fitzgerald is a folk singer and songwriter. Known for his storytelling and skillful use of language, Ian has independently released five albums of original material while touring throughout the country. Performer Magazine called Ian "a polished songsmith who is high atop a field of great artists breaking through to festival and folk concerts throughout the States." To that end, Ian performed a solo set as part of the Wildwood Showcase at the 2015 Newport Folk Festival and with Providence, RI's Smith&Weeden as his backing band at the 2016 Newport Folk Festival.

Following the release of his most recent album, You Won't Even Know I'm Gone, Ian decided to form a band of his own for the first time.  Known as Something Else, the band includes Seamus Weeden (also of Smith&Weeden) and MorganEve Swain and James Maple (both also of The Huntress & Holder of Hands). Ian's work with MorganEve stretches back to sessions in 2008 for his third record, and all three band members contributed to You Won't Even Know I'm Gone. Together, they are reinterpreting songs of Ian's both new and old, with many being performed by a band for the very first time.
