“Mr. Fullbright joins the lineage of terse Southwestern songwriters like Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, sticking to a few folky chords and reaching for unassailable clarity.” – Jon Pareles, The New York Times
“Poetically astute lyrics and heartrending musical feeling.” – Randy Lewis, The Los Angeles Times
“Sad and serious and wise and wonderful, well written, well played and well sung. Well done.” – Steven Wine, Associated Press
John Fullbright’s debut album was called “preternaturally self-assured,” while NPR said “it’s not every day a new artist earns comparisons to great songwriters like Townes Van Zandt and Randy Newman, but Fullbright’s music makes sense in such lofty company.” The Wall Street Journal crowned him as giving one of the year’s 10 best live performances, and the album also earned him a GRAMMY nomination for Best Americana Album and the ASCAP Foundation’s Harold Adamson Lyric Award.
And he was just getting started. His latest album, The Liar, is “a killer album full of insightful lyrics about the human condition delivered with a soulful voice and forceful instrumentation” (PopMatters) and a showcase for Fullbright’s undersold talent as a consummate bandleader, on top of everything else.
