Willy Vlautin, the frontman of Richmond Fontaine knows how to tell a sad story. A story about people in bad situations, people that are down and out and just everyday people in the real world around us.

Willy also writes book that tie in heavily with his music. I would love to see a movie directed by this man. It would be slow and most likely slight depressing, but amazing beautiful at the same time.
The Fitzgerald is one of their slower albums, possibly their darkest and also in my opinion quite possibly their best.
