The five-member Tom Fuller Band embodies the soul and creative energy of Chicago’s rich musical heritage – from the city’s finest rhythm and blues, through Cheap Trick to late period Wilco. Their diverse collection of memorable rock and pop songs embrace songwriter Fuller’s distinctive blend of pleasing melodies and distinctive chord progressions, alongside outstanding lyrics that uplift and resonate with passion and truth.
“Ask,” Tom Fuller’s third album on Redcap Records, is extraordinarily emotional and incredibly captivating. Recorded in both LA and Chicago, “Ask” was produced by studio maestro Rick Chudacoff (Alison Krauss), mixed by Cenzo Townsend and Dave Bascombe (U2, Bon Jovi), and features two of Paul McCartney’s band members, Abe Laboriel, Jr. and Brian Ray. “Ask” was mastered at Abbey Road Studios in London.
In February 2013, Tom Fuller Band performed a critically-acclaimed European Tour, playing with Little Feat as well as Wishbone Ash. The music media raved about the band’s strong performances and Tom’s outstanding songwriting, and provided comparisons to Tom Petty, The Beatles, Neil Young, Todd Rundgren, Ian Hunter and Oasis. TFB rocked the Paradiso in Amsterdam, Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London, and the Gruenspan in Hamburg, among other iconic European venues.
The very successful Tom Fuller Band European Tour comes on the heels of a jammin’ 2012, headlining key gigs at Summerfest’s Rock Stage and other famous venues like La Zona Rosa in Austin, Granada Theater in Dallas, Texas, multiple House of Blues locations and all points in-between. Over the last ten years, the broad, global appeal of the Tom Fuller Band rock-pop sound has resulted in compatibly sharing stages with a diverse array of nationally established artists. A rockin’ fourth album with world-class, meticulous studio production is in the works along with accompanying radio and promotional support, plus touring throughout 2013 and beyond.
