Editorial Reviews

Songs is John Fullbright's follow-up to his GRAMMY-nominated debut, From The Ground Up. Songs has its moments of darkness, tracks born from pain and heartbreak, but for a craftsman like Fullbright, there are few greater joys than carving emotion into music, taking a stab at that lofty goal of immortality through song. It makes him and his fans 'happy,' and there's nothing bad about that.

You would think at my age, 55, I would be like most of my friends and be happy with the music of the 60s and 70s, and I am, for the most part. But I am always looking for something new because I don't believe that good music stopped with my generation. I have a part of me that likes country music because I grew up hearing Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Hank, etc but really am not that impressed with today's "new country". I have since discovered Lindi Ortega, Sturgill Simpson and now John Fullbright. All these artists have shown me that the best country is off the beaten path and out of the mainstream. John's lyrics are just fantastic, no stupid songs about his boat, tractor, pick up truck and girls that love them. His songs like Lindi's and Sturgill are about things that most of us can identify with. His voice is incredible and piano arrangements are top notch. Don't take my word for it, listen to some of the mp3 samples on Amazon and see for yourself. It's good to know that there is hope for the future when it comes to country styled music that isn't just cheap pop with a fiddle or slide guitar!!!

John continues to produce solid albums as his songwriting matures. "Write a Song" is an interesting play on words during the song. This album is more low-key with mellow tracks primarily accompanied with piano & acoustic guitar (very little harmonica which I enjoyed on his first album). Highlights thus far are, "Happy", "She Knows", "Write a Song", and "High Road" (my overall favorite). John writes good folk/americana which is very enjoyable and well made. I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys that type of music. You won't be disappointed.

,,,on the lyrics. This is great music from a very talented singer songwriter. Executed well, great back-up musicians and nice follow-up to his first CD. Don't launch into this though if you're looking for a pick-me-up. The lyrics tend toward broken love and unhappy times.

I figure it's once or twice in a decade that a major major musical talent appears, always seemingly out of nowhere, in this case Bearden, Oklahoma. I'm talking the Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, Townes Van Zandt and Steve Earle kind of talent. I can hardly exclaim enough how talented I think John Fullbright is as songwriter, guitarist, pianist (and whistler). The kid's first record "From The Ground Up" in 2012 blew me away and I thought wow, how's he going to follow that? Just released, his sophomore "Songs" doesn't disappoint and is more of the same greatness.

I've been lamenting perhaps prematurely that fame and fortune is going to elude him because his talent is just too smart. But maybe not. This morning on CBS This Morning he was on playing "Happy" and I thought that even Billy Joel would have to admit that jeez, I could never write songs this great.

I was only recently turned on to John Fullbright by a friend. He is an amazing song writer and this album does not disappoint. He does what an artist does best, create art. There really is no other way to describe the manner in which he crafts his lyrics on this album other than art. He does it in such a way that satisfies the listener, yet keeps them wanting more. As a new fan, I heard he had a new album and decided to purchase it. If I was on the fence before, after hearing the first few tracks, I'm definitely convinced it was well worth it. Give it a chance especially if you've never heard of him. If you have, well then, you already know it's going to be good.

I remember putting on Mr. Fullbright's CD From The Ground Up and
being blown away by it's first song Gawd Above, his voice like Leon
Russel in his prime and band rocking like it was 1972. That album
was a perfect blend of blues based rock (Satan and St. Paul etc.) and
great deeply felt ballads (Daydreamer etc.), the only minor quibble
I had with FTGU was the last overly sentimental Song For A Child.
I was waiting for this CD with much expectation and upon first listen
found that there was not one rock song--the mid tempo Never Cry
Again is about the most energy this CD musters. There are some
great and poignant ballads on this CD like High Road , The
One That Lives Too Far and a couple of others but all and all
I personally find this a fairly depressing CD. There was a naturalness
to all the songs on FTGU but a lot of these songs felt like they were written
under a deadline, just my take on it, take it or leave it but I feel that those looking
for the brilliance and power of FTGU may be a bit disappointed. If
an album full of sentimental dirges is your cup of mud, have at it.

Singing with a slight southern twang, I heard "When You're Here" [live in Malibu] posted on YouTube. This got me to Fullbright's latest album called "Songs." This is actually the 27 year old's second studio album. It starts out with "Happy" the first single. "Never Cry Again" is a full blown production, almost country-rock, "When You're Here" is a mid-tempo piano ballad. "High Road" is a seven minute storytelling opus. Most songs are acoustic, piano driven, pop/folk tunes that you will enjoy again and again.
