ABOUT JOHN FULLBRIGHT:
Two years ago, John Fullbright released his debut studio album, From The Ground Up, to a swarm of critical acclaim. The Los AngelesTimes called the record “preternaturally self-assured,” while NPR hailed him as one of the 10 Artists You Should Have Known in 2012, saying “it’s not every day a new artist…earns comparisons to great songwriters like Townes Van Zandt and Randy Newman, but Fullbright’s music makes sense in such lofty company.” The Wall Street Journal crowned him as giving one of the year’s 10 best live performances, and the album also earned him the ASCAP Foundation’s Harold Adamson Lyric Award. From The Ground Up was nominated for Best Americana Album at the GRAMMY Awards, which placed Fullbright alongside icons like Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Levon Helm, and Lucinda Williams. Fullbright has been touring to enthusiastic audiences in support of this latest album, Songs.
