Hello, I'm Erik (Air-iK) Fullmer. After seeing my first Heavy Metal concert in 1984 I started playing guitar. I was 16 years old and was living in a small town called Atwater in California. I then formed a band with some friends in high school. In 1990 my band Willow Wisp moved to Hollywood to become ROCK STARS! After sixteen years of playing the Sunset Strip, being signed to a couple of independent labels, releasing a few albums and building a small base of loyal fans that were spread out all over the world, the ROCK STAR thing didn’t exactly happen as planned. After accumulating a love for alcohol that became an addiction of the worse kind, I was forced to leave my band in 2006. In 2011 I decided to turn my life around. I got the Hell out of Los Angeles and moved to Portland Oregon and with some help from my brother and sister in law I entered an outpatient rehab program. Now 8 years sober and for the past three and a half years I have been working as a CADC I alcohol and drug counselor here in Portland Oregon. Today I continue to write and record new music and have a new album in the works. In the last few years since I've gotten back into the full swing of singing, playing guitar and writing music, I feel I have exponentially grown a musician. Now, I’m looking forward to what is to come on this new journey into the world of Podcasting!
