MEET JANE FULLER: Singer and Guitarist


Residents of Sierra Madre should remember musician Jane Fuller, who has performed 
at such local sites such as Corfu on Sierra Madre Boulevard, as well as 
the old 323 Restaurant further down the road, and many other venues. Further 
afield, Fuller has performed at various farmers markets and a few times at Colombo's 
Italian Steakhouse on Colorado Blvd. in Eagle Rock.

Fuller’s next project will be a YouTube live stream for Valentine’s Day called “The Col-ors of 
Love,” scheduled for Sunday, February 14 at 4 p.m., on the ApexoftheSoul channel. It will feature 
interesting visual effects, classic romantic songs from various genres, and Fuller’s famous raffle. 
She typically gives away raffle prizes on the live stream. You can check the schedule page on website, or check Jane Fuller’s FaceBook page.

This will be a live chat, so readers can participate.

Fuller is also a theatre arts teacher for the LA Unified School district, though all classes have been 
on-line for nearly a year, with no direct social interaction. In the past, she has even involved her 
students with her public performances.

 Fuller has produced four CDs, including, “Night and Day,” “You’re Coming Back Again,” and a 
Christmas CD called “The Spirit of Giving.” Her most recent CD is called “Someone to Listen.” 
Her music can be purchased online via Apple Music and Spotify.

Fuller began to play the guitar at age 10, when the folk music trend invaded the Catho-lic Church 
and Masses included guitars. “One of the girls at school showed me a few chords, and I had to 
learn quickly,” she says. Fuller explains that she had a strict nun in 5th grade who pushed her into 
leadership positions in stage, and in organizing the music for Mass. “I had to deliver for God,” 
she says with a laugh. “I had to learn the new songs for church, and this drove me to improve 
my guitar playing.”

Fuller went to Alverno High School, and took classes at Pasadena City College. “I stud-ied under 
the famous Bobby Bradford at PCC and learned a lot about blues and jazz. I really learned a lot 
from him,” she emphasizes.

She earned a Bachelors Degree in Creative Writing and Literature at UC Santa Cruz, and a degree 
in theatre arts from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

Fuller looks forward to the days of live performances, since she believes that part of her mission 
as a musician is to support local businesses. “It’s so much more than just supporting a business,” 
she explains. “A successful business brings in people, and the people are uplifted and come together. 
This creates a sense of community, and it’s really just like growing a garden. But in this 
case, the “fruit” of that garden that a healthy community produces are the people with naturally 
healthy immune systems.”

This sweet 
boy was 
owned. Now 
his doting 
owner has passed away, and no one in the family 
can take Eddy. He is currently residing at a cat 
boarding establishment and is a favorite among 
the humans there. He loves human attention 
and getting petted. In fact, when I tried to do 
his photo shoot, he kept coming soooo close 
in order to rub my hands and get more petting 
that I ended up having to photograph him in 
the cage, just so you could see him in all his 
glory! He IS very handsome and distinguished, 
cuddly, active, and very healthy. Please don’t 
pass him up! He needs to be back in a home to 
thrive. Born 2010.

Good news: Cookie and Tommy have been 

Pet of the Week

Two-year-old Maverick is a bundle of energy! This fun 
guy is the perfect pup for someone who has the time to 
teach him manners and commands, and give him lots of 
exercise. He’s a smart, athletic dog and would do really 
well with enrichment games (like food puzzles) and 
maybe even dog agility. Maverick would prefer an adult 
home and would probably do best without other pets. 
If an adult dog with puppy energy sounds like a dream 
come true, adopt Maverick!

include spay or neuter, microchip, and age-appropriate
