Thrilled to be among OPBMusic's favorite Tiny Desk contestants from the Northwest!
In January, NPR Music began accepting submissions for their 3rd annual Tiny Desk Contest, a competition designed to help uncover musical talent. Unsigned musicians were instructed to use/find/borrow or improvise a desk of some kind, roll video, and play their most compelling (original) song.
Of those thousands of entries, over 400 came from the Pacific Northwest.
Here are just a few of our favorites: Read full article here
The Name of the Game
Local musician-producer Steve Fulton ends a decade of dearth with jam-packed Eponym
By Amy Atkins
It has been 11 years since Steve Fulton released a new album. Our patience has been rewarded.
It has been nearly 20 years since local band House of Hoi Polloi released an album, but band co-founder Steve Fulton still gets asked what the name means—and he still doesn't have a satisfying answer.
"I just liked the way it sounded," Fulton said laughing, though like with most of his creative choices, the decision wasn't really uninformed: hoi polloi is Greek for "the masses" and House of Hoi Polloi was a band for everyone. It worked hard to make sure "the masses" who came out to dance the night away to its rock/funk/ska reggae sound had fun.
He's right. Eponym says it all. Read the full interview here
Fulton and Hunt are thrilled to be a part of Treefort Music Fest!! March 22-26 in beautiful downtown Boise. Join us at The Olympic March 22nd at 9:30pm for all the fun and excitement during this awesome festival!!
Grab your tickets to this 4 day festival of fun here, don't miss out on the party of the year!
I am honored to be a part of 'We're his fans: A live tribute to Leonard Cohen' at The Record Exchange 1/12 at 6pm.
To a troubadour unlike any other. To a poet of the ages. To an amazing life story. I have something special that I am going to do for this show too. Get your wristbands before they are gone and support The Record Exchange. They have been beyond good to me and are, in my opinion, one of the biggest treasures we have in our community especially for musicians and music lovers!
#1 at The Record Exchange. For the year. I'm at a loss for the proper words.
I couldn't be more grateful for all the support I have received throughout the process of making Eponym. It's a dream realized because of my friends, family and fans. I'm so thankful for the joy music brings into my life and the lives of others. I'm so thankful I get to share it and that people WANT to listen. As a musician, that's everything.
It took me 11 years, I wasn't sure anyone was still listening, I'm honored.
Come help us celebrate Eponym and just plain party down in Canyon County! I am excited to bring my new music to my home town on January 13th at The flying M Coffeegarage @8pm! $5 at the door will get you in for a night of pure funky madness!
I always love when I get the chance to perform Hallelujah.
It takes a special venue and a special audience. On 12/3/16, during the Idaho Ho Ho Benefit Concert, just that moment occurred.
It was recorded, and now the version is available as a free download at The Record Exchange when you purchase my new dual album Eponym. This was a special night, I hope you all enjoy!
I am pleased to be a part of the 11th annual Xtreme Holiday Extravaganza on 12/22 at The Egyptian theater.
A wonderfully irreverent and wacky holiday variety show featuring our most talented local musicians, dancers, comedians and community leaders all donating their time and talents for a great cause. All proceeds benefit Interfaith Sanctuary Homeless Shelter. Tickets can be found here.
What a great week for Idaho Ho Ho! When The Idaho Foodbank calls, this wonderful community answers!
We had a fun time at The Record Exchange in store on First Thursday. The Divas of Boise, Davey Jones and The Spiders from Bars and myself played our selections from Idaho Ho Ho to a great crowd and we sold several CD's. The sale of 1 CD feeds a family of 4 for a week, so that is saying something!
Saturday night we held our first Idaho Ho Ho Benefit Concert at The Visual Arts Collective in Garden City Idaho. It was kind of epic!!
10 different artists all came together for 1 cause, and we had a blast.
I had so much fun sitting in on several sets and even got a chance to play Hallelujah to an amazing crowd.
If you have a chance to check out Idaho Ho Ho, it is so worth a listen. There is great talent in Idaho. We have been making this CD for 7 years now and the pool of talent just keeps getting deeper! Idaho Ho Ho is available at The Record Exchange, A New Vintage Wine Shop, all Moxie Java locations and Mixed Greens. All proceeds go directly to the Idaho Foodbank.
Here in Idaho we are lucky enough to have The Idaho Songwriters Association, a nonprofit, volunteer organization dedicated to the encouragement and promotion of songwriters from all genres in the region.
The last Tuesday of every month many different songwriters gather at The Sapphire Room, bringing their original songs to perform in front of an appreciative audience.
I was thrilled to be asked to be their spotlight artist for November, bringing songs of thanks. I am thankful for so many things this year, but never more so, than for the opportunity to release my new album Eponym. I had lots of songs to share last night! Be sure to checkout The Idaho Songwriters, they give wonderful opportunities to so many talented artists.
For the last 7 years I have been lucky enough to be a part of Idaho Ho Ho. A celebration of the holidays with Idaho artists. These artists come together with original or classic holiday songs, donating their time and talent to this compilation CD. All proceeds go to The Idaho Foodbank. Since 2010, the Idaho Ho Ho program has generated funds which have enabled The Idaho Foodbank to provide nearly 200,000 meals to Idahoans in need throughout the state.
This year I am proud to be a part of two concerts celebrating Idaho Ho Ho.
On 12/1, The Record Exchange will host an in-store concert for the 2016 Idaho Ho Ho artists. We hope to sell a bunch of CD's at this event! Each CD feeds a family of 4 for an entire week, so please come join us!
On 12/3 and Idaho Ho Ho benefit concert will be at The Visual Arts Collective. This show is going to be a Holiday Party like no other! Please join us for an amazing night of music, a winter wonderland provided by Franz Witte Landscaping and grab your CD courtesy of The Record Exchange. All proceeds from this show go to The Idaho Foodbank, so enjoy the night and feel great knowing you helped such a worthy organization. Pick up your tickets for the benefit concert here.
Fulton & Hunt at your service! We are excited to be supporting Paper Bird + The Ballroom Thieves. Come to this show Friday 11/18 and give your ears and your rears something to do! Grab your tickets here
SFM-Steve Fulton Music’s ‘Eponym’ top album at The Record Exchange for October
Double album outsells all other national and local releases for the month
November 3, 2016
SFM-Steve Fulton Music’s “Eponym,” the first new album in 11 years from the Idaho musician and producer, was the top selling album at The Record Exchange in October.
“Eponym” outsold all other national and local releases for the month at Idaho’s largest independent record store, including new albums by Norah Jones, Leonard Cohen, Kings of Leon, Green Day and Lady Gaga, among others. “Eponym” is the likely top local seller for 2016.
“Eponym” was released Oct. 6, more than a decade after Fulton’s previous release “Said & Heard.” While Fulton devoted his time in between albums to recording and producing for other artists, he quietly amassed 40 original songs, the majority of which ended up on “Eponym.”
The double album showcases two sides of Fulton’s musical persona — full-band funky rock on one half and stripped-down Americana on the other. A single-LP vinyl version of “Eponym” featuring select tracks, many of them alternate versions and mixes, will be released later in the year.
In addition to Fulton, “Eponym” features an A-list of Idaho talent, including Tim Willis, Scot Alexander (from Dishwalla), Dave Goff, Scott Lindbloom, Dan Costello, Leta Neustaedter, Christine Thomas, Rob Hill, Lucas Ventura, Lindsey Hunt, Tim Hammes, Shon Sanders, Randy Meenach, Bernie Reilly, Louis McFarland, Curt Wardhaugh, Rochelle Smith and Blaze & Kelly.
