My continued amazement with John Fullbright
I just got home from seeing John Fullbright in concert and all I can say is wow...
John Fullbright's album, From the Ground Up, is incredible and it may be hard to believe, but his performance is even better. One thing I love about Americana artists in general is that they sound exactly like their album. I love that the albums are raw.
It was obvious that Fullbright and his band enjoy playing together and were having fun. Fullbright plays the piano, guitar and harmonica and does all extremely well. I always get jealous of people that are multi-talented. He was entertaining to watch. His moves were unique to him and there is no way I can explain it. Just go buy tickets to a local show now. At one point the way he was moving his hips it looked like he was making love to his guitar. The girl next to me was about to go crazy over it. So funny!
When the concert was over, there were two guys behind me talking about how huge John Fullbright is going to be. He may not be known by the masses, but he has already made some major accomplishments such as his Grammy nomination for Best Americana Album and being nominated for Americana Music Honors Emerging Artist of the Year and Album of the Year. I think everyone should know who he is and love him!
I meant to take pictures, but left the house without my phone (I got fussed at by the Hubs for that by the way. "What if something would have happened to you?!?"). I am really disappointed that I don't have even one good picture to share with you. Oh well... I will just leave you with this video from the Crypt Sessions.
