John Fullbright releases his second studio album ‘Songs’ on July 21st prior to which he’ll be making a number of appearances in the UK including Glasgow, Birmingham, London and Bristol (details below).
Talking about the album John spoke about the very act of song-writing which forms the focus of this album:
“When I discovered Townes Van Zandt, that’s when I went You know, this is something to be taken pretty damn seriously…You can write something that’s going to out last you, and immortality through song is a big draw.”
Our Song of the Day is ‘Happy‘ which you can listen to below:
His 2013 album debut “From the Ground Up’ earned Fullbright breakout critical acclaim including nomination for the ‘Best Americana Album’ at the Grammys the same year and entrance into a community of songwriters whose work he admires. “I didn’t grow up around musicians or like-minded songwriters, but I grew up around records,” he says. “One of the most fulfilling things about the last two years is that now I’m surrounded by like-minded people in a community of peers. You don’t feel so alone anymore.”
