"On Course To The Stage"

When Louis Fuller sings about living the dream, his dream is a little more ambitious than most.
The 21-year-old singer'guitarist is not only on the verge of launching his debut CD - suitablly titled Living The Dream - but he's had to put his golfing career on the backburner to do it.
Fuller, of Glenelg North, deferred his course at the SA Elite Golf College to write songs and take up weekly residencies at The Highway (Sundays) and the Duke of York (Wednesdays).
"The golf got put on hold," Fuller says. "It's a bit of an up-and-down journey but it's all good fun.
"I was doing the college full-time but I've just deferred this year and I'll see how the album goes and how I'm feeling about the music.
"There's no way you can fit both in and succeed at both at the same time."
But the busy musician, who has represent SA and Australia in golf, wouldn't mind giving it a go.
"That's why I called the album Living The Dream, because I was playing golf and performing music and I was 21 and thought 'this is the life, I'm living the dream!'. You get the occasional person who's a bit jealous and says 'you've got it so easy' but at the end of the day, you're not going to get where you want unless you work your arse off."
Fuller, who's originally from Streaky Bay, says he started writing songs int he same year he first picked up a golf club - the tender age of 10.
"I didn't get forced into it, dad just handed ma a gutiar and I learned the covers (songs) and for some reason I had the ambition and desire to create songs.
"At the age of 10 I also picked up a golf club, a mate introduced it to me. I enjoyed it a fair bit and then moved over to Adelaide and started taking it seriously."
He puts more of his focus on playing solo with his 12-string acoustic Marand guitar but will be playing both CD launches with his rhythm section - bassist Brett Williams and Drummer Harry Freeman.
"I played electric a little bit when I was growing up but it's all about the acoustic now. Once I get a bit more money and release a couple more albums I'l start experimenting a bit more an buy more guitars."

Louis Fuller writes songs about his life experiences and passions, from love to loss, from family and friends and from people and places of his time.

Louis grew up in the fishing and surfing mecca of Streaky Bay on the Eyre Peninsula of South Australia. Heavily influenced by his father's musical passion and his older brother's guitar playing, he picked up the guitar and sang from the age of six.

Rhythmic mixes of funk, reggae, surf and country feels fingerpicked and strummed on 12 and six string acoustic guitars are simple and elegant in their purpose of underpinning Louis vocals and lyrics.

Louis names Paul Kelly and Carus Thompson as big influences on his style, however, he understands the importance of taking those influences and creating his own unique voice.

Songwriting is Louis' passion. A selection of his original songs have been released on CD. 'Living The Dream' was recorded with a three piece band in 2009 and 'Around The Next Corner' was recorded solo in 2010. Louis is currently working on a third release for 2011.

Living in Adelaide, Louis has been given the unique opportunity as a solo artist, of playing his original songs at two weekly residencies for the past 18 months. The Highway Hotel, where Louis plays every Sunday afternoon, was voted the best hotel in SA for 2010.

Apart from loving Louis' music, employers also enjoy Louis reliability, work ethic and ability to manage and negotiate, which has also resulted in lasting friendships.

Louis is making a living from music and is making music his life.

Local radio Nova 91.9 play two tracks from his debut CD 'Living The Dream' on their local Sunday program and Austereo have two tracks on rotation on digital station Radar Radio.

Currently marketing 'Around The Next Corner' to radio and planning a release at FUSE 2011.
