Mike Fuller is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist originally from Hamilton, NJ, living in Brooklyn, NY.
The son of a church organist and a cover band singer/rock and roll enthusiast, music has always been the sun in the solar system of his life. From drives to daycare accompanied by The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, to high school soccer game pump ups provided by AC/DC and Jimi Hendrix, to college jam sessions channeling the likes of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and John Mayer, to train and subway commutes made more manageable by Stevie Wonder and Gary Clark Jr., the soundtrack never stops.
He carefully blends together these diverse musical interests to create his sound. The recipe can be best described as equal parts Americana, rock, folk, and soul.
Mike self-released his debut EP, “The Human Condition EP,” on September 4, 2020, which was recorded with engineer Charlie Cunliffe at Studio 5L in Belmar, NJ and Grammy-award winning engineer Gary Laney at Nautilus Recording Studio in San Angelo, TX (Johnny Cash, R.E.M., Trisha Yearwood, etc). The three-song work features the driving “Paper Cut” to the melodic “After a While,” a harmonious hymn drawing influence from The Beatles and Crosby, Stills, and Nash. While each song varies in style and tone, they all circle back to universal themes of mental health and fragility.
Mike’s latest initiative was an Instagram Live concert series called “Quarantunes,” where he brought together musicians from across the country to raise money for charities responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. The project raised over $3,500 in just ten weeks time, and allowed him to play alongside artists like Robert Randolph, Ryan Montbleau, Danny Black from Good Old War, Womack from Futurebirds, Andrew Michael Burri (formerly of Lucius), Katie Toupin (formerly of Houndmouth), Oliver Bates Craven (formerly of The Stray Birds), Caleb Hawley, Sean Walsh from The National Reserve, Ben Wyeth (Brand, Hockey), and Ali Awan. He was featured on NBC4 New York and the Rowan University website for his work on the project.
