New York City, NY- FiZ recently formed a non-profit organization called Notes For Life. Notes For Life is a non-profit organization that raises money for charities that help physically challenged children. News 12 TV recently covered one of his monthly performances at the Carmen Road School on Long Island. With his unique skill, FiZ engages and involves the children in his songs as he sings directly to them there by created a large fan base. They wear FiZ T-shirts at every one of his performances and scream out his name. His goal is to create a spiritually healing effect. http://www.notesforlife.org/
FiZ and Notes For Life hosted the first annual benefit MUSIC AND MEDIUMS on November 11, 2009 at the West Sayville Country Club. All proceeds will go to "The Golden Fund for Autism."
FiZ is in the process of creating a new FiZ TV project. He will be intertwining the arts with spirituality. FiZ will interview people who are making positive impact in the world. Whether it is a mother who supports her autistic son's vocal abilities, a CEO of a company that is responsible for implementing fundraisers for people in need and anyone in the arts who make positive contributions to the world. FiZ TV is a platform for FiZ to discuss his music, spirituality, and other topics. The first two episodes feature FiZ discussing spiritual topics such as "The Secret" and "Law of Attraction." On the next episode of FiZ TV, FiZ interviews a child named Anthony who is both blind and autistic. To see more shows go to http://www.fizband.com/fiztv.html
FiZ has acquired the tagline "PEACE.LUV.MUSIC." to promote his vision of music as a way for healing people. FiZ says, "I have always associated rock 'n roll with healing the world and playing a part of it. It was never separate. It was always connected."
"D'Mattia's album is a well-produced pop-rock album with some sick guitar lines and soulful vocals." - Terence Edwards from DEMOLITION
"Whatever sleight of hand FiZ uses on the disc is magic. The songs are warm and filled with promise." - Rikki Lana
"Motivated, engaging, exciting and above all, talented is how I would describe this up and coming musical visionary." - Maria Bolaris from FOLK IT
Music has long been a part of FiZ's life. At seven years old, when most kids are jumping around on playgrounds and watching cartoons, Tony D'Mattia could be found in a rocking chair, eyes closed, listening to The Beatles albums for hours on end. He envisioned himself becoming a rock artist and healing people with his music. As he got older, the prolific songwriter became familiar with instruments such as the guitar, keyboard, and mandolin. At age 12, he wrote the first of an estimated 1,000 songs. FiZ's songs absorbed multiple genres from Motown to Rod Stewart to Led Zeppelin. For his brand new album, FiZ brought in former Wings drummer Steve Holly and veteran producer Bob Stander for collaboration. Stander bolstered FiZ's natural gift for songwriting, a combination of stream-of-consciousness lyrics and songs based on self-imposed writing exercises. FiZ has recorded and self-produced two previous albums, Transcending and Right Where You Are. Throughout his music FiZ's message is always spiritual, hopeful, and brimming with an eternal optimism.
