From the venue:
The public at large hasn’t heard much from John Fullbright since his critically lauded album Songs; a chasm of eight years that seemed unthinkable for someone with so much hype — including a GRAMMY nod, an Americana Music Association Emerging Artist nomination and awards from ASCAP and the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame — surrounding his early career. Why did it take so long?
“It’s been a process of learning how to be in a community of musicians and less focusing on the lone, depressed songwriter — just playing something that has a beat and is really fun,” Fullbright says. On September 30th, Fullbright is set to end the dry spell with the release of his new LP, The Liar, opening up his newfound trust in musical collaboration for the world to hear. “That’s not to say there are no songs on this record where I depart from that, because there are, but there’s also a band with an opinion. And that part is new to me.”
