Biography

Coleman Fox & The Funky Broadways hails from a small town south of Atlanta Georgia. Growing up in the roots of Soul and Rock & Roll music helped shape them into the sound machine they are today. The long road that brought them together started in early 2005. Coleman had been in a regionally successful band during his high school days known as Refill. Having found some early success and being a strong songwriter he decided to focus on his own act following the breakup of the band. Coleman Fox, Jon Parrott, and Kyle Jones began playing gospel music together, shortly thereafter, growing up in the Church. As many artists before them, it helped nurture them and formed a tightness amongst the group. Now the search was on for a drummer. Dane Slaughter, during that time had been sharpening his skills on the skins by playing in a local act out of Statesboro, GA while attending Georgia Southern University. Having been childhood friends and growing up playing football together, Coleman and Dane had developed a friendship and a teamwork ethic already together. Following his return to Griffin, GA, Coleman asked if he was interested in joining the group and playing the drums. It was a perfect fit! The group quickly began practicing long and hard hours. It was during this time that they realized how special this group was. Needing some more soul to the group, Coleman began searching for a female vocal to help round out the harmonies. After searching and experimenting Miss Beth Hobbs seemed to fall out of the sky right when she was needed most. Having been trained in singing since she was a child, Beth was a wonderful addition to the group. Lo and behold the Funky Broadway Family was born. Coleman, decided to name them the Funky Broadways, stemming from the widely popular song of the 60's "Funky Broadway" sung by Mr. Wilson Pickett. During this whole time of growth and development Coleman had been working long hours in the studio to finish their first LP. It was a very long process, being the first album he had produced entirely solo, but a very rewarding one. Having finished the album in February of 2010, "Anything Goes", the band was ready for the road. They had been playing one off shows around the local area to perfect their skills as a group in front of an audience. Paying close attention to detail, Coleman felt he and his Funky family were ready for the big time. Now, the process of booking and touring has begun. Still working hard in the practice facilities Coleman Fox & The Funky Broadways are a band with very few comparisons. They have a unique look and sound. They have formed a sound that has been called "lo-fi at its best"; during an interview for Dirty South TV it was coined, "Rock and Soul". So, join the Family and spread the word! Coleman Fox & The Funky Broadways is an engine heading your way full steam. Don't be left out, tell all you know about this new sound coming from the Deep South. With melodies that will sit in your head for days and songs that will make all your emotions turn. You will love this band from the first stroke of the chords to the last.

Lyrics

Hard Road To Cross

Written By: Coleman Fox

Verse1:
I've been having a hard time
I've been lost in a daze
I've been blowing up my mind
I cannot see straight

Chorus:
It's a hard road to cross
Yeah, it's a hard road to cross

Verse2:
She's been caught in a bad dream
I've been seeing her notes
I can't find it in my heart
To tell her we gotta go

Chorus:
It's a hard road to cross
Yeah, it's a hard road to cross

Bridge:
I need to hear you now
I'm having a dream
I need you here right now
Come and save me
Oh I need your dreams.

Love The One You Got

Written By: Coleman Fox

Chorus:
Love the one you got
Boy you know if not
She might not be there in the morning
She's gone, long gone
You know I'm gonna make her feel so fine

Verse1:
Ooh baby,
You know I see you standing over there looking at me
with your ruby red lips, long hair, green eyes, and your tight blue jeans
She's so fine, blow my mind
I can't help but think about her all the time
Oh Miss Georgia you're gonna be the death of me.

Chorus:
Love the one you got
Boy you know if not
She might not be there in the morning
She's gone, long gone
You know I'm gonna make her feel so fine

Verse2:
Hey lady,
You know there's still a lot of world out there left to see
with your ruby red lips, long hair, green eyes and tight blue jeans
Oh by my side, all the time
You and me baby sippin summer wine
Oh Miss Georgia you're gonna be the death of me

Chorus:
Love the one you got
Boy you know if not
She might not be there in the morning
She's gone, long gone
You know I'm gonna make her feel so fine

Bridge:
You know I wanna love you
You know I wanna love, ohh you, yeah.

No More Lonely Nights

Written By: Coleman Fox

Verse1:
So baby come love me
I'm feeling so sad
Why don't you want me
You left me feeling so bad

Pre:
I'm not lying
Yes I'm trying
But you left me all alone
And baby I'm learning
But my heart is yearning
For you to just come home

Chorus:
I don't wanna wake up alone anymore
I just want you where you belong
At my door
I'm a creep, I'm a dog
But I'm tired of being called those things

Verse2:
So baby come hold me
I'm missing you all the time
I will make you see
You just gotta feed me a line

Pre:
I'm not lying
Yes I'm trying
But you left me all alone
And baby I'm learning
But my heart is yearning
For you to just come home

Chorus:
I don't wanna wake up alone anymore
I just want you where you belong
At my door
I'm a creep, I'm a dog
But I'm tired of being called those things

Bridge:
I want you so bad (I want you so bad)
But now you go, away
You say it's not so bad (say it's not so bad)
Just move on, go on
You gotta get a move on, Go.
