Fullbright is deeply rooted in his home state, Oklahoma -- his family's home is featured on the cover of his album "From the Ground Up." He doesn't identify the music he writes as belonging to or needing to belong to any particular genre, and his songs unquestionably sound like his own and not just an amalgamation of influences. He imparts large portions of himself into his music, making it resonate with what makes life what it is, and what it is to be human.

Fullbright connects with listeners on a level that rejects the notion that artists are made up of anything different than the rest of us, while doing so in a way that only the talent of an artist would enable. Fullbright has no qualms about putting himself in God's shoes, or just relating to his Okie roots, and neither role is awkward or out of place for him. His clarity of focus allows him to convey comforting and deeply moving feelings.

Fullbright is certainly a musician apart from his contemporaries. James McMurtry said of Fullbright, "He can go places if he wants to," which is no overstatement. Fullbright has already received the ASCAP Harold Adamson Lyric Award for an album originally intended to be a demo. And he is just getting started.
