John Fullbright got his start at the legendary Blue Door listening room in Oklahoma City. It was there that he recorded a live album and found his base, opening for many other writers including fellow Oklahomans Kevin Welch and Jimmy Webb. His 2012 studio debut, From the Ground Up, received a Grammy nomination for Americana Album of the Year and, later that year, he won ASCAPs Harold Adamson Award for lyric writing. In 2014, John released the critically acclaimed Songs, toured all over America and the UK. John has appeared on Late Night with David Letterman, Mountain Stage, A Prairie Home Companion and at festivals across the US and in Europe.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING:
"I have no doubt that in a short time, John Fullbright will be a household name in American music." - Jimmy Webb (Wichita Lineman, By the Time I Get to Phoenix...)
"One of the contemporary greats." - Whispering Bob Harris, BBC
Mr. Fullbright joins the lineage of terse Southwestern songwriters like Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, sticking to a few folky chords and reaching for unassailable clarity.
- Jon Pareles, The New York Times
"Songs is a warm, winning and plainspoken Americana album that builds on the authority and charm of From the Ground Up not by musical muscle flexing, but by its clarity and simmering intensity." - Jim Fusilli, The Wall Street Journal
"A quiet collection of stately ballads and ruminative torch songs a moving display of deeply personal songwriting." - Jonathan Bernstein, Rolling Stone
"Songs impressively and potently economical... poetically astute lyrics and heartrending musical feeling." - Randy Lewis, The Los Angeles Times
"Tightly wound, musically sparse this 26 year old Oklahoman neither wastes a word nor unfurls a cliché emotion." - James Joiner, Esquire
"In a short attention span world overloaded with sensory stimulation, there aren't many artists who can stop you in your tracks with a single song. You can't move right after hearing this song. Thats how powerful it is." - Lynne Margolis, American Songwriter
"The One Who Lives Too Far" describes the collapse of a long distance relationship as if it were as gradual and inevitable as the ice breaking up in the spring."
