Along for the Ride chosen as one of OPBMusic's favorite entries

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

A Chat with The Boise Weekly

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

A Tribute to Leonard Cohen

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!

Eponym #1 for the YEAR!

#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. 

Free Hallelujah Download at The Record Exchange

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! 

The Xtreme Holiday Extravaganza

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.

It was an Idaho Ho Ho couple of nights!

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!!

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.
