A.J. Fullerton is a 21-year-old blues/rock/roots artist raised in rural western Colorado. Playing guitar since the age of 14, he has steadily built a reputation around Colorado and across the USA, spending most of his time on the road touring.
Fullerton is best known for his powerful vocals often described as "gritty, but soulful" and â"beyond his years." His instrumental style is centered around his nimble finger-picking, raw bottleneck slide and the steady thump of his homemade stomp-box.
His sound is steeped in tradition, but has a modern flair. Living on the road and getting by on whatever he makes at his shows, Fullerton lives a kind of authentic, do-it-yourself approach to the blues that comes through in his music.
He was a 2016 Westword Music Awards "Best Colorado Blues Artist" nominee, a 2016 Mile High Blues Society representative to the International Blues Challenge youth showcase in Memphis, Tennessee, a 2015 Colorado Blues Society "Top 5 Young Blues Artists" nominee, and a 2014 Telluride Blues and Brews competition finalist.
