My first brush with celebrity was being corralled by a passing newspaper photographer and ending up on the front page of the Brisbane Telegraph, at the age of seven. News was slow that day.
A founding member of the Guild of Australian Songwriters, I have written many songs over the years and performed in the USA, Australia, South Africa, England, Ireland, and Canada.
Songs can be heard at MUSIC on this website, and www.roeyfitzpatrick.com/
has information about my songwriting, including lyrics and recordings.
I had the good fortune to work at John Murray, in London, a company which remained in the same family from 1768 until 2002. They published Jane Austen, Arthur Conan Doyle, Lord Byron, Goethe, and Charles Darwin.
I was their first work release student, and it helped pay my way through the Brookes University publishing course at Oxford.
