Sydney-sider Billy Fox was someone I first heard whilst at Rare Finds first birthday party at Oxford Art Factory. I remember it because my friend Sara made the remark mindset that he looks like someone who should be playing NRL not someone making emotionally high-octane music.
I’m not sure if it was that remark that made me look into more of his music or just some other curiosity but I’m glad I did because Billy is one talented dude. A voice as sweet as honey and a sound that floats and grooves Fox’s latest certifiable future soul hit Taste is one that will get stuck firmly in your head for days.
In a statement about the track, Fox says “Taste is really about only realising how much you needed something when it is gone. Taking things for granted is such an easy trap to fall into, so we need to be aware of the important parts of our lives and treat them with care. I wrote, recorded and produced this track entirely at my home studio.”
So float away into the mellow jams of Billy Fox and whilst you’re at it, you can catch him on tour this August. Get amongst it.
