Having worked with dozens of artists in the studio and onstage Fulero has honed his keyboard skills to razor sharpness and it shows on his new live release, Airborne. Playing tunes from his band’s 2015 studio release, Catching Air, Fulero shows a dynamic sound and a deep commitment to musical exploration.Fans of his most visible current gig as part of the Emancipator live band will be pleased to hear elements of that sound present throughout the disc. To help celebrate the release, the band is releasing a series of videos from the show, all edited together by Fulero himself. “I taught myself Final Cut Pro and set out to edit all the footage together myself. I really enjoyed getting to learn another way to bring my music to the people,” said Fulero in a recent chat.Airborne (Live) was recorded at the venerable Goodfoot Pub & Lounge in Portland, Oregon, the band’s home base where their previous studio album was recorded. The show is a wild and exploratory take on the material, with each song well over ten minutes in length. ‘That’s what I love about the jam scene in articular, and why I wanted to form a jam project. Stretching things out, taking the time to find the magic in each piece, is extremely rewarding to me.”With the fourth video segment from the show launching this week and the album finally being made available to the public Asher is excited for fans to hear how the music translates to the stage.  Luckily, you can listen and watch for yourselves!Here’s a link to the songs from Airborne, filmed live at the Goodfoot.
