    • DOIN’ NOTHIN’, ABBEY ROAD and NEW ALBUM - WATERFALL


      Hello from Chicago!

      Did you have a rockin’ summer?!  I sure did!!  My single Doin’ Nothin’ has been in the Top 30 of the Mediabase AC charts for weeks now, getting radio plays throughout the US, featured on national syndicated radio and in-store music programs, generating great publicity and streaming on all the major platforms!!  So very exciting.  Thank you fans for all your support!!

      Did you hear about Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reuniting on Friday at Abbey Road Studios for the 50th Anniversary of the “Abbey Road” album?  

      Here is the Daily Mail story:

      https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-7510197/Paul-McCartney-enjoys-Beatles-reunion-Ringo-Starr-Abbey-Road-50th-Anniversary-bash.html

      I had the privilege of working at Abbey Road myself a short while ago on some tracks, including mastering and mixing Doin’ Nothin’ there.  It’s still an amazing and iconic place to play and record.  I also had the honor to have two members of Paul McCartney’s current band, Brian Ray and Abe Laboriel, Jr., to record in studio with me on Doin’ Nothin’ and a number of other tunes.  What a great time and wonderful memories!!

      I’ll be updating you more soon, but I can now announce that my next single and accompanying video will be released in early 2020.  My next album “Waterfall” will follow soon thereafter.  It is my best record to date and I am so proud of it!!  
      Keep on rockin’ and have a wonderful Fall.  More from me soon.  Thanks!!

    • ROCKIN' DOWN AND MOVING ON UP!!


      Hey there! How are you?

      Me?  WOW, what a great few weeks it’s been!!  Where do I start?  
      Well, I guess I’ll first start with my full-length concert performance at Summerfest in Milwaukee.  At what is billed as The World’s Largest Music Festival, my great band and I rocked it down before thousands, opening right before Loverboy.

      I played many of my fan favorites, plus some of the new songs from my upcoming album called “Waterfall” that will be out this Fall.  I was also honored to be featured on different billboards in Chicago and Milwaukee promoting my appearance at Summerfest!  

      image

      One of the best parts of doing what I do is meeting new people. I had the chance after my Summerfest gig to meet many new fans.  One I want to give a special shout-out to is named Kyle, a 13 year old who was cheering me and the band on throughout our show.  I personally want to thank Kyle and his Dad for being there and for all their wonderful support!  Also, Kyle has his own band called Screaming In the Cul de Sac and I want to wish him all the best in his musical endeavors, and in life.  


      image


      At Summerfest, I also played my new single Doin’ Nothin’, which is becoming a major Summer 2019 hit!  Within the last few weeks, Doin’ Nothin’ has been gaining airplay on various radio stations across the country and has exploded into the Top 5 from #22 on the “What’s In Store Music” chart with over 95,000 plays this past week!  

      image


      Doin’ Nothin’ has only been on that music system for two weeks and already is near the top of the charts.  I am very proud of that as well as seeing these radio chart media reports:
      Tom Fuller’s “Doin’ Nothin’” – Breaks into the Mediabase Mainstream chart Top 50 at 47.

      Tom Fuller is Top 5 on the Mediabase Mainstream Independent Artist rankings, moving up this week from #5 to #3.  
      Things are definitely heading into the right direction, wouldn’t you say?!  I am so blessed.  

      What else? Oh… Doin’ Nothin’ has also been streaming on all the major platforms such as Spotify, plus garnering national publicity as well.  Here is a link to read my major interview feature with “All Access Music” - which offers the latest radio industry and music news - about Doin’ Nothin’, the upcoming album and my goals this year.
      Before I go any further….If you haven’t already, please do something, for me, and for you, and stream my super fun, perfect-for-summer tune Doin’ Nothin’ on Spotify

      After going on the road for my awesome gigs opening up for Tesla, doing media interviews, fan meet and greets, working on the new album’s final touches, and then getting ready rehearsing and performing a full concert setlist at Summerfest, I was ready for a very short break from all the music action.  And I spent that time with the most important person in my life.  🙂  I had a wonderful time with my amazing, smart, fun, funny and beautiful daughter Molly.  We spent time at my lake home swimming and boating, we also made cookies, did some cool daytrips and had fun playing with my dog.  Plus I ended up playing music after all…for her.  Haha!!  Overall, my sweet Molly and I had an amazing full week vacation together.  

      image

      Yes, I will say it again….I am so blessed. 

      So as you can tell, I love my daughter, and my music career right now.  I have a strong chart profile in growth mode with more anticipated station and streaming playlist add coming in the weeks ahead, along with confirmed new, huge airplay coming this weekend (7/27-28) on the Jim Brickman national radio show with a major artist feature on stations in over 80 markets across the country.  Find out more about where to listen here: https://www.jimbrickman.com/radio/

      Thanks fans for all your support!  Keep on rockin’ and moving on up!!  I sure am.  😉  

      God Bless,

    • Lots of exciting things happening!

      Hi Rockers!
      Happy Springtime!  It was a long winter in Chicago and I am so excited about the change in weather, plus what we have planned for the next few months! Before I write about that, I first want to thank the great guys in Tesla and their management for hosting me and my awesome band as direct support on a mini-tour last month.  What a terrific experience that was performing onstage before those legendary rockers!

      image

      I have some HUGE news to share with you.  This Friday, I am releasing a new single called Doin’ Nothin’ on various digital streaming services, including Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Amazon Music, and Google Play Music.  Doin’ Nothin’ is a super fun, catchy song that we hope will become the next great, entertaining summertime party song.  Just imagine hanging out stress-free poolside, at the beach or at a backyard party, rockin’ out with a great buzz, a huge smile and amazing friends, doin’ nothin’ but having an amazing time!!


      image

      With Doin’ Nothin’ I had a fantastic team working with me to bring my songwriting and musical vision to life. My new single was produced by Grammy nominated producer: Rick Chudacoff, mixed by Cenzo Townsend (U2, Bon Jovi) recorded in Muscle Shoals and mastered at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in the UK.  The studio version of this live fan favorite features Brian Ray and Abe Laboriel, Jr. from Paul McCartney’s band!  Check out our Facebook and Instagram pages for more updates about Doin’ Nothin’.  


      Another big announcement I want to share is that I have been asked to return once again to Summerfest, the World’s Largest Music Festival!!  Held annually over a 11 day period in Milwaukee, Summerfest invites the top acts from all over the world.  We have a fantastic prime slot for our extended, concert-length set this year, performing July 3rd starting at 8 PM on the newly-renovated Uline Stage, immediately before stage headliner Loverboy, who start at 10 PM.  I am honored to play Summerfest for the third time!

      There are lots of other inspiring musical aspects I look forward to communicating with you over the summer and throughout 2019.  I continue to write other new songs and look forward to more Tom Fuller single releases as well as a new album later this year.  I am blessed to have my close friend and outstanding musician Jordan Kozer as the band’s drummer, plus I’m very fortunate to have other extremely talented, live musical performers helping to rock out for all you fans.  More updates on the band later too.
      I promise that 2019 will be an amazing year of new Tom Fuller music!  So look for my tunes online and later this summer on radio stations throughout the USA.

      Thanks so much for your wonderful support!  Rock on!!


      God Bless.TF

    • Time for a big update!

      Hello fans!  How have you been?  Have you been “Keeping Time”?  Don’t forget to spring forward early Sunday morning.  And while you are at it, feel free to listen to my tune, you got it, called “Keeping Time”!! Download it for free

      You know, i’ve spent the last 18 years as the frontman of the Tom Fuller Band. Besides the lead singer, I also have been the primary, driving songwriter, and I continue to write emotional, heart-felt songs. I am so excited about my new album called “Waterfall” coming out later this year. More on that.

      Whenever I recorded in Nashville, I have been blessed with an outstanding studio band.  Same with my touring band members.  Great group of fluid guys. By that, I mean changes were made when needed and the line up was frequently different for various songs on my last four albums.  I also have had different musician line-ups when I have gone out on tour throughout the USA and Europe.

      While I am very excited about this upcoming year, 2018 frankly was a challenging year for me.  As many of you know, I had an accident that caused me great physical and emotional pain, plus sidelined me for months and months.  But I took advantage of the down time(s), and turned a negative into a real positive.  With the alone time and space, I finally came to terms with who I really am professionally….Tom Fuller: Singer/Songwriter.

      My music producer, Rick Chudacoff, gave me that title 20 years ago. But today I fully embrace it. Thoroughly. I will always have great touring and studio bands to support my music. But personally, and outwardly promotionally, I am welcoming the title and role of singer/songwriter more than ever before.  In fact, we have officially changed the entertainment act’s name to simply “Tom Fuller” to better accommodate this personal and musical evolution.

      2019 is going to be a very, very special year. I’m releasing a remixed version of my fun party tune called Doin’ Nothin’ in the springtime. In conjunction with the Doin’ Nothin’ single release, we have produced a brand new, extremely unique, world-class music video. The music and the visuals are absolutely stunning.

      Right behind those efforts, I’ll be releasing the new cd album project called “Waterfall” that I mentioned earlier.  It’s my best work to date, with really awesome music on it.  Thirteen excellent tracks about life, much of it very autobiographical.  Another single to be released via radio and streaming will come off Waterfall, on the heels of the Doin’ Nothin’ efforts.  A second Waterfall single will also be issued later, but I want to keep everyone in suspense on the names of those tunes.  The album Waterfall took nearly two years to write and produce.  And as the singer and songwriter, I am so very proud of it.  I can’t wait for you to hear my new material.

      And hopefully you will see us in concert soon too!  Another thing i am very excited about for 2019 is that I am resuming touring with four great musicians. This April we are doing a 5 show mini-tour with the cool rock band Tesla. I think it’s a great fit, and maybe we’ll do more gigs with them. Regardless, i want to be on the road playing my Taylor guitars, making new friends and fans along the way.

      I miss all of you and hope to be rocking in a town near you soon. Many, many thanks for your continued support and encouragement.  2019 will rock!!!  Big hugs to all!!!

      God bless,

      TF

    • Happy Days!

      Hi Rockers!
      I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July holiday!!  It was a little weird being on a Wednesday this year, and figuring out what weekend to celebrate on.  I celebrated on both weekends!!  Haha!!  😉
      As I wrote in my last short note, I am feeling better and stronger every day.  I thank you again for all your well-wishes and prayers.  They mean so much to me.
      I hope you have a happy day, week, and rest of the year!  I have set some specific goals to accomplish in 2018 for my music and life.  I encourage you to do the same.  And I will certainly keep you updated soon on things, including my new tunes!  Happy Days for sure!!
      Thanks so much!  Keep on Rockin’!!  God Bless.

      Hello Everyone!

      I want to first thank all my fans, friends and family who have been so supportive as I continue my recovery from the bad accident.  I’m so happy to note that I am doing much better, I’m feeling healthier and happier every day.  Once again, thanks for all your prayers and support.  It means more than you will ever know.

    • News from Tom

      Hi Rockers -
      You haven’t heard from me for awhile, and there is a very good reason for that.  I had a very bad accident while moving some music equipment around.  I fell extremely hard and really hurt myself badly.  
      The good news is I am on the mend.  Slowly, but surely.  The doctors have ordered me to not play music for an extended period, time frame to be determined, but it will be awhile.  So we won’t be playing any gigs in the near future.
      Thank you for your understanding and your concern.  I greatly appreciate it.  And I will certainly keep you updated on my progress and when I can play gigs again.  Thanks again for being such amazing fans!  I’ll be rockin’ for you as soon as I possible can.  
      God Bless.
      Tom Fuller
