Normally a lone songwriter and singer, John Fullbright recruited a few fellow musicians including Jesse Aycock, Aaron Boehler, Paul Wilkes, Stephen Lee, and Paddy Ryan and entered the studio.  The result is his newest album recorded in just four days, “The Liar”, which is set for a September 30 release.  This is the first release in eight years for the award winning Oklahoman.

Full right spoke on his extended absence saying, “it’s been a process of learning how to be in a community of musicians and less focusing on the lone, depressed songwriter…just playing something that has a beat and is really fun.  It was such a collaborative thing with some really cool voic.  It’s just like playing music in Tulsa. Everybody kind of does whatever they do, and it works.” 

He added, “that’s not to say there are no songs on this record where I depart from that because there are, but there’s also a band with an opinion. And that part is new to me.”

The first glimpse of the new album is “Paranoid Heart” and is available now.

“Bearden, 1645”
