Recorded Live via KMFA in Austin, TX
Three years ago John Fullbright burst upon the Southwest music scene. From his home in Okemah, Oklahoma, also the home of Woody Guthrie, John honed his songwriting and playing skills to such a degree that before he was out of high school he was a favorite at festival campgrounds. Firmly rooted in a variety of musical styles, John draws on what has come before but without imitation. Forget labels when you listen to John Fullbright. He is not folk, not Americana and not pop, but possibly the best definition of them all. Fullbright’s earliest songwriting heroes, Townes Van Zandt and Mickey Newbury certainly infuse this record, but so do Jimmy Webb and Randy Newman and many of Fullbright’s lesser-known songwriting friends from Oklahoma and Texas.
Recorded in May 2012 at KMFA in Austin, Texas. Thanks to contributing producer Jeffrey Blair
