JOE FOX+ AARON JACKSON + MIKEY
Joe Fox, whose debut Blue Flowers EP Acoustic Alley Sessions, released at the tail end of 2016, introduced the young Londoner as one of the most singular new British talents to emerge in recent years, has announced an 8 date tour of major UK cities, calling at Birmingham’s ORT on Fri 17th March.
Acoustic Alley Sessions, is a collection of raw, soulful, unadulterated songs, that illustrate why A$AP Rocky chose Joe to co-write 5 songs on his #1 album At.Long.Last.A$AP, following a chance meeting on the streets of Soho, where Joe was busking and selling CD’s.The EP included the tracks ‘Like Jesus’ and ‘Autopilot’, classic lyrical songs which demonstrated Joe’s dedication to his craft and displayed a total disregard for trends that makes his voice unique in the modern musical landscape.
A student of every great songwriter from the Beatles to Bob Marley, the debut EP, together with these forthcoming live dates, present Joe Fox as a truly magnetic live artist and find him performing in the same way he began making and selling his music: alone with a guitar.
