The Songwriter Series presents
John Fullbright’s 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 HaroldAdamson Award for lyric writing. In 2014, John released the critically acclaimed Songs , toured all over America and the UK, and appeared on Late Night with David Letterman.
Fullbright possesses a keen ear for memorable melody and a unique approach to harmony, moving through chord progressions far outside the expected confines of traditional folk orAmericana. His performances are stark and direct, a deliberate approach meant to deliver the songs in their purest and most honest form.
“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 impressively and potently economical... poetically astute lyrics and heartrending
musical feeling.” —Randy Lewis, The Los Angeles Times
