Like many before him in the canon, Will Fox is a vagabond. Born in Houston, TX, raised in London, Paris, and the American South, Fox spent his adolescence moving around, practicing, and playing. His travels even took him to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where he studied Bossa Nova, expanding his craft. Back stateside, destined to operate a gristmill near his hometown in the Shenandoah Valley, Fox instead moved to Los Angeles to become a troubadour.
In his songs you'll hear his lifetime's array of influences compounded from the intricate fingerpicking of Nick Drake and Leo Kottke, to the romantic croon of Chris Bell. From the songwriting deities themselves like Neil Young or George Harrison, to modern heroes like Cass McCombs or The Clientele.
There's a timelessness to his affect, a kind of ageless otherworldliness one can only achieve through experience. And yet, there's something unique and youthful about it. It's fresh faced. It's hi-fi. Often Fox’s progressions and melodies subvert your expectations and stray into unlikely places. Maybe it’s the Bossa Nova in him? Maybe it's in the cosmos... Whatever the case may be, this much is true: these are good songs sung by a man who is never bashful and who laces his vulnerability with wisdom.
