Oklahoma’s John Fullbright is a songwriter’s songwriter, the kind of guy that writes lyrics that make other songwriters cry “Why didn’t I think of that?” John delivers his road-weathered ballads from a strong heart—one that’s got a more than a few miles on it, and more than a few left. The man’s a straight shooter; case-in-point, the new record, available now on Nimbit, is appropriately titled Songs.
Despite being a Grammy-nominated songwriter, killer vocalist, guitarist, pianist, and harmonica player, he is only kind of good at dominoes.
‘Songs’ is a warm, winning and plainspoken Americana album that builds on the authority and charm of ‘From the Ground Up’ not by musical-muscle flexing, but by its clarity and simmering intensity.”
