Biography

Who is Leaving Cash?

Leaving Cash formed in early May of 2005. Based out of Coatesville, PA, the name is a direct reference to the high school's acronym: "CASH," or Coatesville Area Senior High.

The versatile four-piece, known for switching instruments throughout the show, was originally made up of Brian Fitzgerald, Brenna Fitzgerald, Matt Lobach, and Andrew McLean. The quartet recorded their first full-length release "Give A Little Try" over the summer and winter of 2008, and released it independently on January 2, 2009. During the summer of 2009, Matt Lobach and Andrew McLean parted ways with Leaving Cash and Matt Radomile (guitar/vocals) and Jason Smith (bassist from the band Hippocampus) filled their places.

One of the most immediately recognizable and unique traits of the band is the integration of electric violinist Brian Fitzgerald. On this instrument, he performed in February 2008 with the Foo Fighters on national television at the 50th Grammy Awards and has also performed with Mark Wood – founding member of Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Additionally, he works independently throughout the Philadelphia area as a solo artist and as a session player for numerous acts.

Primarily active in the greater-Philadelphia area, Leaving Cash plays both original venues and the cover circuit of bars and clubs, with covers spanning several genres and decades of music. A testament to this variability, as a drummer for the Paul Green School of Rock's All Stars band, Brenna performed with John Wetton (King Crimson) and Skunk Baxter (Steely Dan, Doobie Brothers). Leaving Cash’s original material is across the board, ranging from alternative rock to funk and jazz-inspired compositions.

Leaving Cash’s recent attention and support from the Philadelphia media has been on NBC, performing on the 10! Show on two separate dates; on 93.3FM WMMR, performing live on the Preston & Steve show and receiving both radio play and praise from WMMR’s original music-focused DJ, Jaxon; and on 93.7FM WSTW’s “Hometown Heroes.” In 2010 they were named for Best Live Performance in 93.7FM WSTW’s Hometown Heroes Homey Awards. They have also performed live and been in rotation on the Pittsburgh area’s 105.9 JOE-FM.

Lyrics

Bliss

Written By: Brenna Fitzgerald

[verse]
you could call it confusion
or maybe this is an illusion
i see your words in black and white
but none of them were clear that night

[chorus]
and if i never got to know you
this would be hard to get through
loving you shouldn't be like this
it should only be bliss

[verse]
when you started to misspeak
the tears were streaming down my cheeks
i never wanted you to go
but i saw this coming long ago

[chorus]
and if i never got to know you
this would be hard to get through
loving you shouldn't be like this
it should only be bliss

Good Night

Written By: Matt Lobach

Runnin in circles just tryin' to remember
the last thing they caught me doin' round here
cant let another moment go to waste
what I'm doing wrong is now so clear

Am I too far gone to get back home

Can I get a shoulder I need someone to lean on
cant believe another brother broke his back
up for the road, here we go, one more time no
feelin' kinda good like I'm all intact

Am I too far gone to get back home

It's gonna be a good night coming
cant remember the place where I'm going
get lost in the smoke until it clears
get lost in the smoke until it clears
