Raised as an only child in the mountains of rural Western Colorado, A.J. was brought up surrounded by numerous styles of music ranging from; Rock, Folk, Bluegrass, Roots, & Blues. His biggest musical influences ended up being found in his parents' collection of Classic Rock & Blues records. Playing solo, and in local bands throughout his mid-teens, by age 19 he was playing full-time supporting his rapidly developing solo career. His style of playing falls somewhere between the finger picking & slide of Country Roots music, and the groove based uptempo sensibilities of Blues and Rock & Roll.  

 In the few short years of his professional career, A.J. has won a number of awards & accolades. In 2016 he was the winner of the Colorado Blues Society's "I.B.C Competition" ,  as well as winning the following Colorado Blues Society "Members Choice Awards"  for;  Best Slide Guitar (2016), Best Acoustic Act (2016),  Best Young Performer (2016), & Best Duo Act [A.J. Fullerton ft. Nic Clark] (2016)

At the 2017 Colorado Blues Society  "Members' Choice Awards" A.J. won an unprecedented 8 awards for:
  - Best Guitarist
  - Best Solo/Duo
  - Best Band
  - Best Male Vocals
  - Best Slide Guitar
  - Best Songwriter
  - Best Acoustic Act
  - Best Local Recording (“Kalamath”)

Fullerton has played such events as; The International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN., The Telluride Blues & Brews Festival,  The Clarksdale Juke Joint FestivalBohemian Nights New West Fest, and The Durango Blues Train.  Playing on average 200-250 shows each year,  A.J. is often hailed as, “The Real Deal", and is frequently called one of the hardest working young musicians on the scene.
