About Pierce Fulton
Vermont native Pierce Fulton was a producer, DJ, singer, and multi-instrumentalist who became known in the electronic world in the early 2010s for his assorted styles of original material and remixes. With a handful of notable collaborations to his name, he issued debut effort Introducing Pierce Fulton in 2014.
A lifelong musician, he released his debut solo EP, Pardon My French, on Cr2 Records in 2011 while still in his late teens. Garnering attention for songs like 2012's Bebe Rexha collaboration "Sink or Swim" and 2013's "Wanna Be" and "Where We Were" (featuring Polina), he began touring extensively as a headliner while issuing remixes for songs including the Killers' "Runaway" and MUTEMATH's "In No Time." With a performance schedule encompassing Central America and Mexico, clubs in the U.S. and Canada, and festivals in Europe throughout 2013 and 2014, he released the single "Runaway" and accompanying Runaway EP in March 2014. The tune went on to hit number one on the Billboard Twitter Emerging Artists chart that summer. Later that year, after issuing dance chart-climber "Kuaga (Lost Time)" as well as remixes for Dillon Francis' "When We Were Young" and Life of Dillon's "Overload, Fulton released his debut, Introducing Pierce Fulton. Compiling his previously released songs, the set was followed in 2016 by Borrowed Lives, an EP that, while danceable, was inspired by getting back to the non-digital instruments of Fulton's teens. The title track featured fellow indie pop-EDM crossover artists NVDES. Sophomore effort Better Places landed the next summer and included another NVDES collaboration, as well as a pair of assists from Noosa.
Following the release of the high-profile "Waiting for Tomorrow" single, which found Fulton joining Martin Garrix and Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda, he issued "Information Overload" with Grabbitz and a pair of ethereal, Noosa-featuring singles, "Overthinking Rain" and "What Is Gonna Make You Happy?" Pierce Fulton died on May 29, 2021 at the age of 28. ~ Marcy Donelson
