On this Robbie Fulks interview, how growing up in the south and incessant reading influenced him, a stint in NYC that didn’t work out so well, backstory to some of his best songs, the joy of finally having his first solo album on a record label, working with Producer Steve Albini and how this unconventional combination works, street falafel, roller coasters, why “Profanity is fun!”… and more!

Robbie is a singer, recording artist, instrumentalist, composer, and songwriter. He is by far, one of the smartest, and most clever lyricists I’ve had the pleasure of listening to. He’s a great storyteller and is able to develop and articulate specific and particular character traits that bring his characters to life. He evokes emotions in you as the listener, about the characters and the very real scenarios of life they find themselves in – which are basically the ups and downs of the common man.
Over the last 26 years, Robbie’s released 13 albums. His 2016 record Upland Stories was nominated for a Grammy for Best Folk Album and the song “Alabama at Night” was nominated for a Grammy for Best American Roots Song. Let me just say one thing before we get started – this guy is a national treasure and more people need to be hip to what he’s doing. Not to sound like a fanboy, but to combine such meaningful lyrics with such beautiful melodies and Robbie’s voice, at this level of excellence… makes him an incredibly rare talent.
