John Fullbright entered the music scene in 2009, performing at The Blue Door in Oklahoma City. The owner of the venue soon became his manager, and in February of that year, Fullbright recorded his first album, Live at the Blue Door. He attended the 2009 Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis immediately after recording. Live at the Blue Door went on to be very successful at WoodyFest, the annual folk festival honoring Woody Guthrie. Fullbright’s musical style fuses together a range of genres, including folk, Americana, and pop. This mixture of influences creates a sound that is truly individual to the Southwest.

We’re not sure what’s in the water out there in Okemah, Oklahoma but whatever it is sure does help inspire some impressive songwriters. The hometown of Woody Guthrie is also the place where we find John Fullbright. In a time where there is no short supply of guys with guitars, John Fullbright will grab your attention as a commanding singer, clever lyricist and earnest songwriter. From the Ground Up is John Fullbright’s debut studio effort and a solid start for the young songwriter.
