[FIRE-AND-BRIMSTONE FOLK] Oklahoman John Fullbright has quite a bit to be proud of at age 25. His full-length debut may not have won the Grammy for best Americana album—he, along with the Lumineers, the Avett Brothers and Mumford & Sons, lost to Bonnie Raitt—but the nomination is telling enough. The album, fittingly titled From the Ground Up, seamlessly combines Midwestern folk, Bible Belt gospel and rootsy blues into a ragbag concoction that neither sputters or slips but billows through the album’s 12 wisdom-rich cuts. Fullbright doesn’t so much sing as speak in a soft baritone, but when his voice does break, it launches into a raw, godforsaken yowl that contrasts with the album’s familiar backdrop of wispy piano, acoustic guitar and sparse accordion.
