More about Tom Fuller
Tom Fuller is a maverick and a troubadour. He’s also the same guy who, as a kid buying his first Paul McCartney album, never imagined that he would wind up recording with two of McCartney’s band members, Abe Laboriel, Jr. and Brian Ray. From that session, the fun, fan-favorite tune Doin’ Nothin’ has emerged – accompanied by a crazed, dazed, out-of-this-world (literally) music video showcasing Tom letting his freak flag fly. It’s a creative, psychedelic animation featuring Fuller playing his Taylor Guitars and singing alongside historical characters, castles and buildings, plus dragons, dinosaurs and space aliens, with many visual elements coming out of Tom’s head, that conversely match Fuller’s catchy, stay-in-your-head lyrics.
Fuller’s outstanding Rock/Pop/AC music has broad universal appeal, with rabid fanbases also spread throughout the UK and Europe. Hailing from the Windy City, Tom Fuller embodies the soul and creative energy of the city’s rich musical heritage – from Chicago’s finest rhythm and blues, through Cheap Trick to late period Wilco. Tom’s compositional sense also expertly references the British Invasion pop with chops heritage with Beatlesque imaginative arrangements, rich harmonies, and sweetly-complex chord sequences.
His albums – including the song Doin’ Nothin’ – were recorded in LA, produced by Grammy-nominated Nashville studio maestro Rick Chudacoff (Alison Krauss, Smokey Robinson), mixed by Cenzo Townsend and Dave Bascombe (U2, Bon Jovi, Kaiser Chiefs) at the famed Muscle Shoals studio and mastered at the hallowed Abbey Road Studios.
Overall, Tom Fuller’s songs embrace his distinctive blend of innovative melodies alongside very emotional lyrics that engage, uplift and resonate with passion and truth.
Fuller’s fifth album, the highly personal “Waterfall” may be his best to date. It is scheduled for release in mid 2019 with an aggressive and comprehensive U.S. promotional campaign including radio, streaming and digital. Tom will be leading his excellent live band on an April tour opening up for Tesla, plus many more gigs will be announced soon in support of the new album. Fuller has performed all over the world with top bands and artists including Little Feat, Blues Traveller, Rusted Root, Robin Trower, UFO, King’s X and the Guess Who, among many others. The widescreen cinematic vision of Tom Fuller’s music continues to flourish.
