Born in Woody Guthrie’s hometown of Okemah, Oklahoma, John Fullbright grew up surrounded by a rich musical heritage. He started playing the piano at 5 and learned to play guitar at the legendary Blue Door eventually supporting Joe Ely and Jimmy Webb.
His stunning debut LP ‘From the Ground Up’ – released in 2013-was a lyrically diverse, genre-spanning collection of memorable songs with staggering depth and promise and more than deserving of its Grammy nomination, up for the Americana award.
The press were unanimous in their praise for the LP with Uncut declaring “…The arrival of a major talent”, The Evening Standard calling John “A new all-American idol” and Sunday Times Culture saying he has “…a remarkable way with words”.
