Betty Fox Acoustic CD Release at Hideaway Cafe
Soul is what it’s all about with this passionate quartet. 2015 IBC finalists and 3 times voted Best of the Bay! This is a show you won’t want to miss!!
With an extensive background in gospel and a lifelong passion for soul music, Betty Fox has burst onto the Florida music scene in a whirlwind of controlled yet unabashed passion and has taken the hearts of anyone wise enough to lend her their ear. Betty Fox appreciated singing early in life and performed for the first time at a church play at the age of 4. Her family had a deep love for southern country gospel and tight harmonies which they would express at every family gathering, and that is where her affinity for music began. “My uncle Fred would pound on the keys with his monster hands and the harmonies would resonate in my soul”, Fox says. Now, at age 27, this fiery songstress has her own musical project with quite a few heart wrenching, lyrically driven and musically sound original tracks that beg the question “What kind of life must this old soul have lived?” To support her talent, she has carefully selected musical heavyweights Matt Walker on guitar, Benjamin Sudano on bass, and Sam Farmer on drums to set herself up for nothing less than well deserved success. Listen for yourself by clicking on the “Music” tab. In fact, in the past year this dynamic quartet has played on multiple music festivals including the city of Treasure Island’s Bikini Blues Bash Festival, the Tangerine Blues Festival, the Dunedin Wines the Blues Festival, the Gasparilla Music Festival, they headlined the Safety Harbor Seafood Festival, and will be performing at the Daytona Blues Festival in October. They have opened for such artists such as Mavis Staples, The Legendary JC’s, Selwyn Birchwood (IBC WINNER), Roosevelt Collier of “The Lee Boys”, Damon Fowler, Lucky Peterson, Shaun Murphy, Bill Wharton “The Sauce Boss”, and Marcia Ball, They have performed on festivals with Lord Huron, Ozomalti, Black Joe Lewis and the Honey Bears, Best Coast, Dawes, and The Meter Men, for crowds amassing over 6,000 screaming fans. You definitely don’t want to miss this one of a kind musical experience! If you haven’t heard them, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of their first album “Too Far Gone”, released in July 2012 and titled after one of her powerful original songs in which she pleads with a loved one lost in addiction. “It’s the most important song on the album”, Fox says. From the Salsa tinged chart “Goodbye” written as a farewell to her beloved Grandmother, to “Dirty Soul”, a rickety anthem of her love affair with music and a thorough homage to Howlin’ Wolf, this album will pull at your heart strings and make you want to dance while you play it on repeat. “Too Far Gone” can be found on itunes, Amazon.com, and of course here on her website.
