John Fullbright hails from the same town (Okemah, Oklahoma) as the great Woody Guthrie and was a surprise nomination at this year’s Grammys for Best Americana Record, nestling alongside Bonnie Raitt, the Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons and the Lumineers.

The 24-year old singer-songwriter started making music after dropping out of school and on the independently-produced debut album, From the Ground Up, he offers a unique talent for guitar as well as a lyrical sophistication that both intrigues and entertains.

We met up with Fullbright earlier this month during his first UK dates and cut an incredible one-take Best Fit Session of the biblical-referencing ‘Jericho’.
