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.

Idaho Songwriters

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.

Idaho Ho Ho

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!

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

Eponym remains a top seller!

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.

Good times at the Sapphire Room!

Bass! Drums! Piano! Violin! We had it all, including Randy Meenach on the Pedal Steel! We threw Eponym a party and a PARTY it was!!

Huge thanks to my awesome band, Lindsey Hunt, Christine Thomas, Rob Hill, Lucas Ventura & Tim Willis! And let's not forget the guests, Randy Meenach, Tim Hammes & Bernie Reilly. Everyone was on fire!

We were thrilled to have The Record Exchange on site selling copies of Eponym, what would we do without our local independent record store? They are awesome and wonderful partners, we are so lucky to have them!

 Above all I wanted to thank all of YOU! Eponym exists because of all of you. I am eternally grateful.

Steve

Two Weeks

Hello Friends,

Here we are, exactly TWO WEEKS before Eponym can be found in the wild! 

In 11 years I have forgotten how crazy, exciting, hard and scary making your own album can be. Good thing I have such an amazing support team behind me. You are all awesome! 

While busy working on Eponym, I also found some time to enjoy the heck out of Boise during The Boise Open and Hyde Park Street Fair. SFM had a blast playing both. We were overwhelmed by the gracious crowd at Hyde Park Street Fair, we could feel their energy!

I wish I would have had time to check out all the great bands/friends playing, but I had to get back to mixing and mastering to ensure we are ready to hit the ground running on October 6th.   Speaking of, I would be thrilled to see all your faces at The Record Exchange for the release party and in store performance.
