There is something that happens inside a good song. A tootsie roll can take you back to your elementary school playground; a list of baby names becomes a prayer; the voice of a toothless refrigerator man reminds you to say “I love you.” Jenner Fox tells the stories of people and places with unparalleled compassion and respect. His artful tone, poetry, and fluency on his guitar do something only the brave ones do: let us in.
The members of the Pacific Northwest based Jenner Fox Band collaborated on various touring and studio projects for years before formally assembling for an experimental cargo bicycle tour of California in 2021. It clicked. They shared a sensibility for deep listening, three-part-harmony, space, and 50 mile bike days. Bringing Fox’s songs into a more vast musical landscape, the band has delighted audiences up and down the west coast since day one. Featuring Oregon’s tuba state champion Aaron Moore on electric bass, farmer and dobro extraordinaire Benji Nagel, and former members of the beloved Northwest outfit Polecat – Jeremy Elliott on electric guitar and Aaron Guest on keys. This band is not one to be missed.
“Jenner Fox is the rare artist who comes along and doesn’t sound like anybody else. His lyrics paint a vivid picture of our most intimate and profound emotions even when delivered with a nod or a smile. Any day he releases a new album is an exciting day.” Jim Goodwin, Jive Radio DJ
