Patriot Music's mission since 2005, has been to celebrate individual liberty with original, non-partisan music and to find positive ways to secure our rights. I passionately support ALL of the Bill of Rights and the people that defend them. I believe that the simple, but timeless principles our Republic was founded on are the key to our success.
You can't have freedom unless you're willing to let other people have it. Government's one and only function is to PROTECT rights, not to grant them, and not to provide security or forced "equality" by infringing on them. My music is meant to challenge people to consider things their busy lives often prevent them from thinking about too deeply. I try to write music that will grow with the listener and mean different things to different people at different times in their lives.

"Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Music"
Kellie Lambert McGuire, Republican American
"In addition to the tasteful, tuneful and infinitely listenable tracks I've come to expect, "Entitled" had some downright tasty surprises.
Andy Rice, Program Director, KPMX FM, CO
"The record has an overall earthy tone, and shines as a modern school of rock for the masses. And it is quite bridging; a track like “Different in your Eyes” takes a John Mellencamp-style Americana love story but makes the happy couple decidedly liberal and conservative."
Jack Coraggio, Litchfield County Times, CT (Newspaper)
"The variety at which (Matt Fitzgibbons) can approach the music is impressive. (He’s) able to do melodic and poetic, and then something that’s a little like a sharp stick to the eye. Most musicians do one thing. It’s impressive that he can do so many."
Dale Jones, Program Director, WZBG FM, CT
"Great Music and Great Message, rarely do you find both, but Matt Fitzgibbons succeeds at it continually. Love to spin his tunes!!!"
Mary Dunham King, MuseBoatRadio (Podcast)
