Bill Fulton came to Los Angeles from the San Francisco Bay area in 1987 to pursue a career in film and TV composing. He started his journey in Los Angeles at the Dick Grove school of music where through connections at the school he landed his first job working at MCA-TV (now NBC Universal) and later working at Warner Bros. Animation and Hanna Barbera Cartoons. In 2002, Bill started The Bill Fulton Band, a jazz octet featuring the best players in Los Angeles including Ernie Watts which played many local venues in Los Angeles and were featured in 2005 at the Playboy Jazz Festival Rose Bowl venue. In recent years Bill has worked as a musical director, pianist, and arranger for Connie Stevens, Suzanne Somers, Engelbert Humperdinck, Barbara Morrison, and many other artists and groups. Bill’s big band and octet arrangements are popular in many ensembles, high schools, and universities throughout the world. The Concert Jazz Orchestra at Cal State University Long Beach recently recorded two CDs which included Bill’s arrangements.
