“Somebody Like You” is the remarkable new single fromShelter from the Storm. Co-written with Grammy Award-winning artist Richard Marx, the country-pop love song evokes a fun, nostalgic vibe with a sweet message.

Since releasing his first single in 2013, Fabus has gained a loyal fanbase by crisscrossing the country sharing his music. He’sopened for some of the biggest names in the industry including New Kids on the Block, Lady A, Dierks Bentley, and Randy Houser.
