Simon Fox is an acoustic meddler, with work ranging from traditional folk songs to more challenging sonic experiments. Since disbanding grover, Simon has quietened down, trading sweeping guitar theatrics for more intimate, acoustic-led songwriting.
The songs, performed under various fox monikers, show a more personal, reflective side, with deceptively rich arrangements, a disarming wit and a flair for creating intimate moods. Recordings feature simon playing a wide variety of instruments, including guitars, banjo, percussion, keyboards, theremin, mandolin, even occasional brass and woodwind.
The debut fox release, the first rule of comedy by lonesome fox was released in December 2007 on bearos records. A host of fox singles and exclusive compilation tracks are available on where it’s at is where you are records, and the debut solo album, everything is for the best by world of fox on commercially inviable records.
