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
Joe Fox plays Ort Cafe Birmingham on Thurs 13th October 2016, with support from Cosmo Pyke. Tickets available here.
