The Soundhouse presents the incredible Joe Fox on Thursday 16th March!
Joe Fox never set out to be famous. He was just writing songs because he wanted to — or even, because he needed to. “I’ve found a lot of people I’ve met really love being noticed,” he observes. “A lot more people do their jobs for others’ recognition than I thought. I don’t really. I’ve just always always made music because I enjoy it.” It’s this dedication to craft and a total disregard for trends that makes Fox’s voice unique in the landscape of modern music. A student of every great songwriter from the Beatles to Bob Marley, he brings a classic structure to the mind’s eye of a listless and disenfranchised child of the inner city.
Fox got his break when he met A$AP Rocky busking on the streets of London at 4am, wowed him with a little sing-song, and subsequently ended up being all over Rocky’s 2015 ‘At.Long.Last.A$AP’.
His first EP ‘Acoustic Alley Sessions’ showcased more of his stunning vocals alongside minimal production.
Now, he’s signed to Island and, following October’s Acoustic Alley Sessions debut EP and an extensive UK tour, is set to properly launch his solo career in 2017. It’s probably safe to say his busking days are over.

TONIGHT Strangling Vinyl Promotions presents Welsh Indie pop legends The Darling Buds celebrating their 30th anniversary year!
Influenced by the catchy simple sound of the early Beatles, the band created melodic, hook-driven, short-duration singles. They were considered part of the short lived “Blonde” movement , but also referenced the C86 scene of a few years earlier.
The Darling Buds formed in Caerleon near Newport, South Wales, in 1986, by the then 19-year-old Andrea Lewis. Their debut single, “If I Said”, was released on February 1987 and was well received. The group re-released the single on an established label, Native Records, receiving radio play on John Peel’s BBC Radio 1 show. Signing with Sony in 1988, several singles preceded their critically acclaimed 1989 debut LP, Pop Said. The album ultimately reached the Top 30 in the UK Albums Chart, and the band appeared on the cover of Melody Maker twice.
The band will be playing ‘Pop Said’ in full, along with other favourites. Promises to be a Christmas cracker!
Supports: Journal & Yodaclub
Tickets on the door. 7.30pm doors.
