Luke Fox delivers roots songwriting with pop sensibilities; an honest, laid-back swagger deriving from his regional small town upbringing. His sunny disposition, breezy feels and distinctive vocal tones warm and inviting.
Balancing his passions and pursuits, Luke resides between his share house in Perth and farm in the surfing/winery hub of Margaret River. A bedroom musician for some time, it was playing acoustic gigs whilst travelling, a memorable evening in the village of Ericeira on Portugal’s surf coast and some seriously good luck, which inspired Luke to finally share his music at home.
It’s since been an enjoyable ride for the firefighter-turned-musician; winning TripleJ’s 2017 Groovin’ The Moo competition, supporting artists including Lime Cordiale, Hollow Coves, Abbe May and Riley Pearce, songs featured on popular Netflix series Terrace House and launching debut EP ‘Sugarloaf’ at the 2018 Nannup Folk Festival.
Importantly to Luke, it’s the support from his friends and talented ensemble that make this solo project a special, shared expedition. Luke Fox & Friends are a positively charming display; the perfect balance between serious musicians and easy going mates.
Recorded by Matt Gio (Birds of Tokyo, San Cisco) and mastered by Willy Bowden (Gotye, Paul Dempsey), The Sugarloaf EP is a tribute to home, to authenticity and to the ironic problem of feeling lost when able to have everything.
