Chris Fox is a professional musician living and working in Cambridge, England. Singer songwriter, Guitarist, 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 has crafted his stage presence in and around Cambridge and increasingly now performing further afield. To date his accomplishments are plentiful including an interview and live performance on BBC radio Cambridgeshire, support for Boo Hewerdine, Sean Roberts & Kathryn Lakeman, Brookes Williams, Lucy Ward and Ange Hardy to name but a few.
A "seriously accomplished guitar player with a powerful yet expressive voice'" Chris clearly transcribes songs of the human experience in an electic range of styles across the folk and roots spectrum; writing and performing songs using a new roots soundscape that encompasses a cultural whiplash of Folk (both trad & contemporary), Americana, Country, and Blues.
His song writing style is centered 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 released at Ely and Cambridge Folk Festivals.
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
