British Indie Folk Songstress
Based in the sunniest spot of the United Kingdom, lives independent singer songwriter Donna Fullman. In pursuit of Truth, Beauty and Wisdom - she is currently penning songs for her next release: a full length album ‘Inner World’ which follows her debut EP ‘Happiness + Victory’.
Whilst working as a graphic designer she honed her writing skills developing personal accounts of prose, poetry and lyrics. Using vocal melody as her first instrument she eventually picked up the guitar.
“I still prefer to use vocal melody. It’s more honest” . Donna Fullman discussing her writing techniques in September 2010.
She continued to develop her voice and guitar playing whilst resisting performing for many years. In 2004 she applied to the Brighton Institute of Modern Music to study Songwriting and was offered a place based purely on the lyrics she presented.
She graduated with distinction, a few ‘bedroom’ recordings and new band members in tow, collectively hitting the gigging circuit of London and the South.
“I realized that performing was vital to getting my music out there, to connect, which is at the heart of everything I do.”
With musical influences steeped in the heady 60s and 70s she notes John Lennon, Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan as key influences. Inspired by the epic creations of Ennio Morricone and lyrical works of Patti Smith, Leonard Cohen and Jim Morrison. The combination is a powerful blend of poetry and artistry she is dedicated to.
