First Radio Drama Production has posted!
A small group of student actors and audio students gather on Wednesdays to record short one act radio drama scripts. They spent two months working on an improv series and recently recorded "The Stranger" a classic mystery told originally on the radio drama "The Whistler."
Executive Producer: Michael DeRita '20
Pierce Fulton (born 6 June 1992) is an American DJ, musician, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer. In 2014, Fulton's single "Runaway" topped the Billboard's Emerging Artists chart. Later that year, his song "Kuaga (Lost Time)" was listed at number 38 on Billboard's Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart and used in a Smirnoff ad campaign.
You might know Pierce most for his songs Kuaga, No More, Losing You & Landmines but with his recently released Borrowed Lives EP and debut album Better Places, he goes back to those early musical roots.
“I’ve played some sort of music since I was a child,” says Pierce. “Anywhere from a guitar to just banging sticks on stage as a 5-year-old at my aunt's wedding, I’ve always ‘done’ something. Electronic music was the first time in my musical lifetime that I stopped playing things and started clicking and dragging. It’s a blast because you can be a one man band, but over time I realized I lost a lot of what made me a musician. I still can’t even play my guitar as well as I did when I was 14, don’t even get me started about drums or piano. With my songs like Landmines and No More, you can hear the live music sneaking its way back into my life but Borrowed Lives and my album Better Places are my first full steps back into being a musician again.”
Pierce is still subject to the habits of his youth; bouncing between genres and instruments while simultaneously bringing all of these influences into the dance music he's known for. When he isn't out on the road, playing shows around the world, not too much has changed about those quiet, cozy nights spent in the studio.
