We were excited to intro the radio world to LA-via-Vermont’s Pierce Fulton earlier this year via the earwormy “Borrowed Lives”, but Now hot on the heels of SiriusXM spins on ALT Nation’s Advanced Placement, we’re absolutely Elated to follow up with The Song for radio from this up-and-comer! It’s the title track off the newly released “Better Places”
“Better Places” (feat. NVDES) is some infectious and habit-forming stuff played on an array of eclectic instruments including kazoos, a melodica and a merlin guitar (to name a few), but above all else is a Hopeful Song that’s perfect for the end of summer and into fall transition, urging us to embrace the more playful side of life!
Raised in Vermont and a prodigious musical talent from early on, from the age of six Pierce Fulton quickly learned how to play a wide range of instruments for family and friends. A defining feature of his sound and vision his interest in taking concepts from one instrument or genre and applying it to a vastly different instrument or style.
On top of these already-developed abilities, Fulton also formally learned music theory and electronic production as he grew up. He dove deeply into the works of pioneers like Kraftwerk and Apex Twin and released his sonically unconventional deubt EP at the tender age of 18.
