Asher Fulero Band
Asher Fulero Band
Musical veteran Asher Fulero (Emancipator Ensemble, Everyone Orchestra, Floydian Slips, Halo Refuser, Scott Law Band) has been delivering the goods for nearly 20 years in an incredibly wide range of stage and studio projects and is known as a consummate Pianist/Keyboardist of the highest order, a prolific and eclectic Composer/Producer, and a creatively inquisitive musical catalyst who inspires those around him.

Previously known for high-end sideman/session work, big tribute shows, and fringe original projects, Asher finally decided to cross the threshold to frontman status in 2013, creating an ultra-tight 5-piece ensemble based in Portland Oregon that delivers a clear vision and an undeniable top-shelf groove

The instantly satisfying sound blends Funk/Jazz-Fusion, Classic Progressive Rock & Americana with the psychedelic, improvisational bent of the Jam-Band culture all delivered by experienced masters who can play their instruments into the ground.

Led by Fulero’s powerfully impressive keyboard work, the band bobs and weaves through his complex original arrangements as easily as it turns on a dime to rework them into new spaces at a signal from their leader, taking listeners on a familiar-yet-original journey through all the best jam-band territories.

The group’s debut full-length studio album, ‘Catching Air’, was released in October 2015 and showcases six Fulero originals with guest cameo appearances from Grammy-winning Producer/Saxophonist Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) and Singer/Mandolinist Mimi Naja (Fruition).

Recorded and Mixed by West Coast studio hero Justin Phelps (Amanda Richards, Cake, The Mars Volta, Joe Satriani, Neville Brothers, Dresden Dolls, Mr. Bungle), the album sounds warm, detailed and 3-dimensional with a better-than-live feel that captures the electric magic of the band’s inspired improvisation, powerful energetic builds and unapologetically long arrangements that give the band plenty of room to groove and create space for Asher to display his keyboard ferocity.

In September 2016 the band released ‘Airborne (LIVE)’, a concert complete with video. Again embracing long, extended arrangements, the videos are captivatingly edited and capture the band on it’s home turf at Portland’s legendary Goodfoot Lounge.

Backed by a live light show from NW legend Lights Up Loud (now LD for The Motet), the videos showcase some of Fulero’s unique and incredible keyboard techniques for the first time, truly demonstrating the breadth of his keyboard prowess and his complete mastery of his Nord keyboard (Fulero is endorsed as a ‘Nord Artist’ since 2004).

The band is made of some of the finest players in the strong Portland music scene: bassist Brett McConnell (Shafty, Fresh Track), drummer Murray Gusseck (Emulator, Tapspace), and guitarists Darvey Santner (Goodfoot Allstars, Yak Attack) and Nathan Day (Big Island Shindig, Foster’s Kids).
