Kate Fuller

Like sugar in gin, her voice skilfully drops despondent lyrics in happy-to-be alive rhythms and soundscapes. As the ensemble thunders, and plays with tempo and syncopation, it’s as if the album breathes with the life Fuller converses in her lyrics.
— Angela Skujins, The Music, 2016
Fuller’s voice is pure, clear and pitch perfect and her music and lyric writing stand out. There’s also an entertaining narrative stringing all of these songs together. She sings about her “fifties housewife” life in Los Angeles and times in the UK in Oxford at the Half Moon Hotel. Yes, there’s a definite country edge to this music, but it’s arranged and delivered in a way that puts it close to the top of that genre.
— John McBeath, The Advertiser, 2016
Kate Fuller plays roots music reminiscent of The Waifs but with the comedic lyricism of Flight of the Conchords.

Adelaide-born Fuller has been living abroad for several years and in Annie’s Room she shows off everything she’s learned. The results are a masterclass in jazz vocals and stagecraft.

Kate Fuller - Love and Murder - Hero Image copy 3.jpg
Adelaide’s country sweetheart Kate Fuller weaves resplendent narratives and the complexities of perspective through her new album and its folky dichotomous textures...Fuller experiments with light and dark moods as Daffodils Or Weeds swims in natural imagery and bright acoustics. Her fourth album also has its darker moments. Violins, cellos and percussion rumble ominously in country scepticism.
