“A seriously accomplished guitar player” with a powerful yet expressive voice Chris Fox transcribes songs of the human experience in an eclectic range of styles across the folk and roots spectrum, writing and performing songs in a new roots ‘soundscape’ that encompasses a cultural whiplash of trad & contemporary Folk, Americana, Country, and Blues. Influenced by a wide variety of artists; Chris Smithers, John Martin, Beck, JJ Cale, Sixto Rodriguez (Sugar man) Johnny Cash, John Meyer and Miles Davis his song writing is centred around contemporary stories reflecting life, love, loss, and humour.
Starting out in 2015 Chris has rapidly progressed from open mic’s and local Gigs to prestigious slots supporting Fairport Convention, Brooks Williams, Sean Lakeman and Kathryn Roberts, Ange Hardy and Lucy Ward to name but a few and is now being booked as a headliner – breaking out of his hometown of Cambridge. Chris played at 6 folk festivals in 2018 (with a slot at Cambridge Folk Festival as a high point) and 2 appearances on the Country TV ‘FolK Show’ in 2018.
Already booked well ahead into 2019 for folk festivals and clubs Chris is currently in the recording studio creating album number 3. After releasing his debut album ‘Parallel Crossing’ in May 2016 Chris followed up with ‘Loose Ends’ in 2017 – both albums have been very well received.
