Reese Fulmer & The Carriage House Band

Short Bio

Reese Fulmer & The Carriage House Band challenge the traditional relationship of a songwriter and his band, with a fluidly rotating cast of top-notch players and a flair for experimentation that combine for a unique and mesmerizing live performance. Add to that a keen lyricism that explores the human experience with a patient and poetic touch and you have the Capital Region's answer to the indie-folk/alt-Americana boundary pushed forward by Wilco and Iron & Wine.

Recent Press

"[Reese Fulmer] has become an award winning songwriter with a poet’s sensibility rich with great storytelling, imagery and a healthy dose of irony. With The Carriage House Band he surrounds himself a revolving cast of extraordinary musicians. The band rarely has the same configuration twice, giving each concert a spontaneity that is electric."

- Vivian Nesbitt (Art of the Song)

"Fulmer is a songwriter whose lyrics expose parts of myself to me that I often cannot put language to, and for that, I’m both grateful and mystified. ... each time I hear him live, the music is different because the band members are different — and bring capacity for greater variety within the beauty of the songs."

- Laura DaPolito (Nippertown)

Concert Review: October 28th, 2023 at Caffe Lena

Reese Fulmer and The Carriage House Band returned to Caffe Lena for two sets on the historic stage on October 28th. Fulmer, whose first time performing was an open mic experience at the famed listening room, had also volunteered and later worked for Caffe Lena. Expectations were high that his original music would not only delight but broaden once again the boundaries of Fulmer’s emerging Americana sound.
