ROBBIE FULKS is one of America's most multi-faceted and imaginative songwriters and singers.
Fulks has released 12 albums since his recording debut in 1994. On Fulks' just-released album "Gone Away Backward, " he is supported by a crack band of bluegrass instrumentalists. It has received rave notices. Fulks' music is intelligent, funny, dark, beautiful and honest. It lives at the intersection of George Jones, Elvis Costello and Shel Silverstein.
HERE'S WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID ABOUT ROBBIE FULKS:
"Mr. Fulks is more than a songwriter. He's a gifted guitarist, a soulful singer with an expressive honky-tonk tenor, and a natural performer. But what really sets him apart is his songwriting, which is one part artful country, one part artful sendup of country and one part a little of everything else...sort of like country meets David Lynch." New York Times
"If country music has an Elvis Costello, it's Robbie Fulks, who marries Ivy League cleverness to an appreciation of hillbilly music that actual hillbillies could only envy." Entertainment Weekly
"So good, he's scary." Chicago Tribune
"Fulks is a natural and gifted songwriter with a withering wit and an encyclopedic understanding of country song forms; he also happens to be one hell of a guitar player. " Journal of Country Music
