Biography

Nulisch was raised listening to Otis Redding and Al Green. In 1981 he was a founding member of Anson Funderburgh's Rockets and sang with them until 1985. He was then part of Mike Morgan's Crawl, before moving to Massachusetts and joining up with Ronnie Earl's Broadcasters in 1988.[1]

He began his solo career late in 1990, relocating to Boston. James Cotton then asked him to sing with Cotton's band on tour, after Cotton had lost his own voice.[2] Nulisch appeared on Otis Grand's 1996 album, Perfume and Grime, which also utilized Luther Allison.[3]

Several of the songs in Nulisch's repertoire are his own, most of them written with Steve Gomes, who plays bass guitar in Texas Heat, the band that backed Nulisch for a number of years. Other band members included Benjie Porecki (piano), Johnny Moeller (guitar) and Robb Stupka (drums).[1]

Nulisch issued I Like It That Way in 2000.[2] His fan base started to expand from this point.[1] His latest release, Just for You, was released in October 2009. It received a four star rating from Allmusic.[4]
