Singer/songwriter and Indie Folk artist Elliott Fullam has announced his sophomore LP End of Ways, out on September 1, 2023, via Kill Rock Stars. Alongside this announcement, Fullam has shared the title track, “End of Ways.”
Inspired by “a close friend’s experience escaping an abusive household,” the song is about “what it takes to survive in the face of horrible circumstances.” It also shares an underlying message of hope.
End of Ways is a record written “for and about a dear loved one’s recent escape from an abusive living situation,” and as such it addresses trauma and violence.
A mix of home recordings and studio productions, the album continues Fullam’s stark and sparse arrangements, with piano flourishes courtesy of Jeremy Bennett.
From the age of nine, Fullam has been the host of Little Punk People, a music interview show on YouTube in which he’s chatted with the likes of James Hetfield of Metallica, J Mascis, Ice-T, Jay Weinberg of Slipknot and many more.
Fullam records and performs all of his music on his own in his New Jersey bedroom, which is then mastered by Alan Douches of West West Side Music. Following What’s Wrong’s digital release in September of 2022 he signed with Kill Rock Stars, sharing his first label release, a 4-song EP called You Are Dreaming in late October, followed by the single “I’m Not OK” in December of last year.
He played his first official show this past winter in New York City at Mercury Lounge, followed by a run opening for Sarah Shook and the Disarmers.
