Fullerton narrates working through the struggle to find identity and purpose in “Almost There.” Fullerton’s easy-going slide guitar roots-rock proves him to be a leading voice to carry the torch of greats such as Ry Cooder and Blake Mills and demonstrates his well-earned accolades of winning several Colorado Blues Society Members’ Choice Awards.
