Christmas Fuller Project is an indie pop/rock four-piece based out of Fayetteville, Arkansas. CFP formed in 2005 as an outlet for four singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalists to further craft their songs in a full-band setting. The lineup now consists of Tyler Ceola (keyboards), Brandon George (vocals, guitars), Cameron Heger (drums, percussion), and Aaron Hopwood (bass, vocals).
While the number of contributing songwriters gives them a very eclectic sound, all four members share common unifying influences. CFP’s primary influences include Radiohead, Wilco, Sufjan Stevens, Death Cab for Cutie, The Arcade Fire, The Beatles, Sigur Ros, Spoon. They combine beautiful, melody-driven pop music with rock sensibilities and occasionally experimental instrumentation. They played their first show in February 2006 and have played consistently throughout Northwest Arkansas since.
In May 2006, they released 5-song demo CD titled The Milkhouse EP, a collection of straightforward pop songs. Soon after, they began another batch of DIY recordings, which ultimately became their first full-length album The Philosophy of Time Travel, released June 2007.
The band, while playing primarily near Fayetteville, has garnered two Northwest Arkansas Music Award nominations and other positive press from minor music publications.

"I've got some yellow-paper ideas" by The Glorious Hum Christmas Fuller Project is four college-age guys from Arkansas who play the sort of thoughtful, cheerful pop music that I would have died for in high school, when I wanted nothing more to slip into someone else's shoes and get away. They've been playing together since 2005, and their work ethic is obvious; I expect their music will only get better."
