Late last June, CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman welcomed Fitz and The Tantrums as musical guests. The band was formed by two CalArts alumni with Michael Fitzpatrick (Film/Video 95) on vocals and James King (Music BFA 99) on the saxophone. Vocalist Noelle Scaggs, bass guitarist Joseph Karnes, keyboardist Jeremy Ruzumna and drummer John Wicks join them to form the band’s neo-soul indie pop sound.
Their sophomore album More Than Just a Dream was released last May by Elektra Records. All Music’s Matt Collar calls it “an even more infectious, club-ready album… while still retaining all of the band’s organic soulfulness.”
Above, we posted the video of Fitz and The Tantrums performing Out of My League on the Letterman show.
