I've mentioned them before, but Foxes and Fossils are launching their patreon page and deserve a plug.

Particularly for those of you who don't know about them, you should. One of the top 10 bands in America/the world today AFAIC.


Since discovering them many years ago, my awe at the sum of their individual talents hasn't abated an iota.

Upon reflection, I suspect the performances of Tim, Toby, Scott, Darwin and Johnny were a subliminal influence, possibly the causal factor for the curiosity and inspiration coming into my head deciding to act without vacillation buying and taking up guitar again in 2017 after a 40 plus year hiatus?!

Enjoy!

Okay, I'm in if only for the name. Can you post a link to your favorite song of theirs so I don't have to go hunting through the B-sides?

Challenging. SO many.

Probably, absolutely LOVE this

Maggie's is my favourite voice from the girls. This and this by her.

Too many to pick just one. This from Tim and Chase.

Awesome by Darwin.

Harmony plus!

These guys are great, thank you for pointing them out. I love Can't Hurry Love done with bluegrass-tinged harmonies.

Any original material?

Tim may have done some composing in his early days, as may have the others who were pro at one time or another (Toby & Scott). Chase is pursuing her own vocal career thing independently, but as Foxes and Fossils they don't do & haven't released any OM TMK.

Writing new material isn't what Foxes and Fossils are about. Sheer enjoyment in doing what they do and performing is. It's their niche and they know it. Read the bio of the group as to how it came about.

In their own words on their You Tube channel and what it about: "An eclectic collection of great covers that span generations".
