“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.”

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.
“When I started out, I was all by myself in a little town in Oklahoma where whatever you wanted, you just made it yourself,” he explains. “I didn’t grow up around musicians or likeminded songwriters, but I grew up around records. One of the most fulfilling things about the last two years is that now I’m surrounded by likeminded people in a community of peers. You don’t feel so alone anymore.”
His 2012 studio debut, From the Ground Up, received a GRAMMY nomination for Americana Album of the Year, and later that year he won ASCAP’s Harold Adamson Lyric Award for songwriting. In 2014, John released the critically acclaimed Songs, toured all over America and the UK, and appeared on Late Night with David Letterman.
