'Told How To Walk' Tour
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Fulton Street bring an epic 8-piece lineup to 'Art, Not Apart' as part of their 'Told How To Walk' Tour in 2019. Performing a one hour live epic show, full of energy and truly danceable funk, the group present their new socially conscious single 'Told How To Walk.' This dark yet powerful record explores recognition of the traditional owners of Australian land, while simultaneously challenging notions of land rights and racism in a post-colonial society. Through this single, Fulton Street aims to promote reconciliation between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians, with the sharp, strong, and fearless band ultimately calling for harmony, solidarity and respect among the wider community.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Fulton Street are an exhilarating 8-piece band making waves in Melbourne’s rich soul music scene. Led by commanding vocalist, Shannen Wick and featuring a rock solid rhythm section and dynamic horns, Fulton Street combines the classic elements of soul and R&B with magnetic energy to create an irresistible sound.
Cutting their teeth with a packed-out three year residency at Cherry Bar, Fulton Street's dynamic live performances have earned them the stage at Caloundra Music Festival, Brunswick Music Festival, St Kilda Festival, Melbourne Music Week, Stonnington Jazz Festival, as well as Bluesfest sideshow support slots.
The release of their highly anticipated album ‘Problems & Pain’ (produced by Cookin’ On 3 Burners’ Ivan Khatchoyan) was celebrated with a sold out album launch at The Curtin, cementing Fulton Street as one of the hottest new soul bands in Australia. ‘Problems & Pain’ was chosen as the feature album of the week on PBS, 2SER and was featured on Triple R’s Soundscapes. Acclaimed single ‘Check Yourself’ was premiered on ROOTS N ALL (Triple J) and reached #2 on the AMRAP Regional Charts. Fulton Street debuted the cinematic film clip for ‘Check Yourself’ on The Music, a bold collaboration that echoes the band's powerful message to the world.
