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.
