ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
My name is Brian Fox (aka Foxman) and I am an Independent artist/songwriter from the Tampa Bay area. Ever since my teenage years, I have always had a fascination with writing; whether it be poems, quotes, short stories or song lyrics. I consider myself to be a creative writer because I don't always write from my own eyes. Sometimes I am inspired by other people's stories, other times I just pretend that I am a Hollywood director and I make them up. With the exception of 2 guest appearances (Butch Thomas in 'Snake Oil' and Dennis Stadelman in ‘Shady Deal') everything you hear is all me. I play all my own instruments; percussion, bass, acoustic guitar, lead guitar, keys/effects and do all my own vocals. I am also an artist, so the graphic design for the CD is entirely my own creation. Want a little history? I originally founded Foxman Music in 2001 with the release of my demo album ‘Songs From The Gallery’. This CD was followed up by 'Like The Freak You Are' (2005), 'Crazy Like A Fox' (2010/11), 'Folklore & Superstitions' (2013) and 'The Hollywood Blacklist' (2015). I am also a former competitor on NBC's 'The Voice’ (2014/Chicago). I didn't make it to the live rounds, but it was still an unforgettable experience. Considering that I am a semi-shy/private person by nature, this took a lot of courage. Back to my new release! ! I think you are all going to be blown away by 'The Fools Mask'! I decided to take a more patient approach with this album, which took 2 1/2 years to complete and over 1,500 hours of work to complete. The new approach led to a huge improvement in the overall sound quality of the recordings. Need a good story line? Well, this new CD is loosely based upon the ongoing battle between good and evil (the 7 heavenly virtues/the 7 deadly sins). A very fitting topic for the times we are living in. Despite the dark subject matter, things are done in a very catchy/classy way and good will ultimately prevail. There are, however, plenty of shocks and surprises along the way (ex: 'Everything", where I use a lower register voice to actually play the role of the devil). Need some more song hype? 6 of the songs on the new album are remakes of songs from my previous 5 releases; Everything (Songs From The Gallery), Shake For Me Now (Like The Freak You Are), Best Days Of Your Life (Crazy Like A Fox), The Freaks Waltz (Folklore & Superstitions) and Shady Deal & Alone With You (The Hollywood Blacklist). These 6 songs are all amazing and very unique. They added a lot of color and personality to the new album. Need a little star power? Well, Butch Thomas who plays saxophone in ‘Snake Oil’ has also played/toured with the likes of Jaco Pastorius, Sting, Lenny Kravitz and many others. Amazing musician!! If blazing lead guitar is your thing, then Dennis Stadelman is going to blow you all away with his lead work in 'Shady Deal'. Another amazing musician!! Back in November 2016, I had the honor of being chosen as a background actor for the Netflix series 'Bloodline". It was an unforgettable experience! Met many of the stars, crews, techs and had a blast! I am in 6 background scenes in episode 4 of season 3 (4 as a boat yard employee and 2 in a church). Season 3 of Bloodline was officially released on May 26, 2017. Song #13 on my new CD, ‘The Damage Is Done’ was inspired by the Bloodline series. Are you a fan of ultra-creative instrumentals? If so, then I guarantee you are going to love 'Ghoulash' & 'The Freaks Waltz'. Both songs are a blast! I saved some of the best for last, 4 of the song on the new CD that I think have the most potential to be hit songs are; 'Meet Again Some Day', 'No More Lonely Nights', 'If Only For A While' & 'Alone With You'. All 4 are relationship based songs, which is definitely something that we can all relate to. A couple of them actually are somewhat built around real life experiences. Need a couple more relationship songs? Well, last but not least; 'That Voice In My Head' is a cool/clever retro British rocker about overcoming fears and 'One Crazy Night' is a catchy/melancholy song about hope and miracles. One final aside that I have to share with everyone. The actual fools mask with the 7 deadly sins, used on the front cover, is my own creation. I ran the mask and the background picture (an old vacant church) through my photo editor where the effects and text were added. Well this image is perfect for the 7 deadly sins side of things, but what about the heavenly virtues? Well, for all of you who decide to purchase a physical copy of my CD, please take a moment to check out the back cover. One day I was using my digital editor and messing around with a picture of an old rustic window and what emerged!! Yes its true ..... its an image of Jesus doing a fist pump! Pure magic!! Anyway, I gotta go. Thank you all very much for your friendship and support. If you like what you hear, then please make sure to share the news with your friends and family. I am involved in a 'War Against Greed', so all of my music will be available as free downloads exclusively at CD Baby. Physical copies of all my CD’s are available at my home website.
