“Religion is for people who are scared of going to hell. Spirituality is for those who have already been there…and I’ve been there a few times.” – Tom Fuller.
Born and bred in Chicago, Fuller’s new album embodies the soul and creative energy of his hometown’s rich musical heritage. Combining the melodic pop-rock sensibilities of Cheap Trick and a will to evolve worthy of Wilco, ‘Freedom’ also doffs its cap to Fuller’s love of classic English bands such as The Hollies and the Rubber Soul and Revolver-era Beatles.
When Tom was a boy he wanted to be two things: a businessman and a rocker. He grew up to be both. However, life’s obstacles would get in the way of a career in music until fifteen years ago, when Fuller discovered he could write songs that people wanted to hear. Fuller says, “That’s when I was able to take my music seriously.”
Ever since then Fuller has worked with hit producer Rick Chudacoff, who over the years has helped create the Tom Fuller Band’s unique sound. Fuller released his debut album Chasing An Illusion in 2005, 2008’s Abstract Man, 2011’s Ask, and followed-up with the latest album titled Freedom.
Having supported many well known featured artists, Fuller will bring with him his studio and touring band to all TFB shows, featuring Ryan Veitch (keys/guitar), John Lewis (lead guitar), Jordan Kozer (drums) and Joel Masters (bass).
