CRITIC’S PICK: Oklahoma born and raised singer/songwriter Fullbright was rightly lauded for 2014’s Songs, an understated gem that promised great things in the tradition of noted songsmiths like John Prine, Loudon Wainwright III, and Guy Clark. But it took eight long years to follow up that milestone, effectively pumping the brakes on his career. He returned with 2022’s The Liar, another solid, if downbeat, collection with tunes that sound like stripped-down Jason Isbell songs. His detailed character sketches are entrancing — his is the perfect venue to best appreciate them. — Hal Horowitz

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.”
