Chris Fox is a professional musician living and working in Cambridge, England. Singer songwriter, performer and session musician Chris has been a full time artist since May 2016 when he left the corporate world behind to pursue a career in music. Chris has been playing guitar since his teens, but only started song writing and performing in early 2014.
Starting out at open mic nights Chris crafted his stage presence in and around Cambridge. To date his accomplishments are plentiful including interviews and live performances on BBC radio Cambridgeshire, International radio airplay, opening for Fairport Convention and support for Boo Hewerdine, Sean Roberts & Kathryn Lakeman, Brookes Williams, Lucy Ward and Ange Hardy to name but a few and he has quickly progressed to bookings further afield at Folk Festivals and Clubs both in support roles and increasingly as a headliner.
“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.
His song writing style is centred around contemporary stories reflecting life, love, loss, and humour. 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.
Parrallel Crossing reviews....
"....The cd contains 10 Tracks of self penned tunes all delivered with Chris's accomplished guitar work and gravelly vocals. .....This is a refreshingly 'live' sounding album and I loved it!"
Clive Batkin - Unicorn Magazine
"Parallel crossing has Chris Fox finding his feet and planting them firmly on the map."
Mike Ainscoe - FATEA
Loose Ends reviews....
“There is some solid song writing and fine musicianship here, with everything cleanly recorded and produced……….the 3 stand outs for me are the cleverly engaging ‘Howl at the Moon’, the beautifully written 'You helped me through' and the quiet dignity of his 'Lord Franklin' reworking” Paul Jackson FATEA www.fatearecords.co.uk/magazine
