Introducing: Joe Fox

October 10, 2016 in Introducing

It’s his dedication to craft and a total disregard for trends that makes Joe Fox’s voice unique in the landscape of 2016. A student of every great songwriter from the Beatles to Bob Marley, he brings a classic structure to the mind’s eye of a listless and disenfranchised child of the inner city.

“Rewind to last year and Joe Fox was still best known (if known at all to some) for his vocal work on much of A$AP Rocky’s 2015 album At.Long.Last.A$AP, a collaboration that came about after A$AP himself discovered the talented musician busking on the streets of London.

Fast forward to 2016 and Joe Fox is now standing on his own two feet, showcasing his solo abilities through the release of two stunning singles. The first to drop was ‘Like Jesus’, a beautifully crafted guitar track accompanied by Fox’s soulful voice. In a matter of days, Joe Fox spoiled us again with his second single, ‘Autopilot’. The track stays true to Fox’s habitual stripped-back nature, consisting only of acoustic guitar and raw vocals. The simplicity of the track helps make it feel instantly familiar, which is testament to Fox’s ability to connect with the listener.” – The Line of Best Fit

As emerging British songstress Frances prepares to release her Let It Out EP on 16th October she’s released a set of visuals for the title track.

Directed by Jon White, the clip finds Frances performing ‘Let It Out’ on a piano in an empty room. While clearly minimalistic, it’s the perfect companion for the emotional track.

Following in the footsteps of such iconic female singers as Carole King and Laura Marling, this second EP arrives as Frances earlier this year proved to be one to watch with the release of her breathtaking debut EP Grow on Communion Records.
