Ray Fuller, an American guitarist, singer and songwriter, has electrified national and international audiences with his unique take on root-blues and rock. Having shared the stage with most every iconic blues artist from Muddy Waters to Willie Dixon, his live show roster reads like a Who’s-Who of blues royalty.
From Ohio, Fuller was given his first guitar at the age of 8, a Gibson Melody Maker. At an early age, he was inspired by the British Invasion; Rolling Stones, Yardbirds and the Animals. He was quick to become the “go to act” throughout Ohio to open for iconic blues musicians such as Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, Junior Wells and Albert Collins.
Ray Fuller and the Bluesrockers are just back from touring Europe, receiving as many as five encores at packed venues. They have headlined blues events from Georgia to New York and from Canada to Germany.
