Fox & Foal, an up-and-coming, folk-inspired worship duo from
Fayetteville, Arkansas, came together when Dave Williams and Brooke
Hobbs first began leading worship together at the University of Arkansas
Wesley College Ministry in the fall of 2015. After a few years of
serving on staff in the local church they began writing original songs
together that were inspired by the move of God in their own lives. A
call to lead their congregation in true surrender to a new life in
Christ remains a constant theme in several of their songs, including
“Overflow,” “I Am Yours,” and “Give It All.”

As the new songs continued to come, and the vision for recording them
and offering them to the wider church started to form, Dave and Brooke
settled on the name Fox & Foal to represent their musical pursuits.
“Human nature’s inclination toward sin is represented by the cunning
fox,” Williams explains, “While the constant presence of the Holy Spirit
in our lives is represented by the foal.” The two images poetically

by the modern Americana artists that made such a resurgence in recent
years, Fox & Foal are drawn to the simplicity of two voices and a

Leiweke, and brought to life by a band of musicians that includes Aaron
Smith on drums (Rich Mullins, The 77s, The Temptations,) Chris Donohue
on bass, (Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin, Allison Krauss, Robert Plant,)
Matt Slocum (Sixpence None The Richer) on cello, and Matt Stanfield on
piano and keys (Corey Asbury, Kasey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Norah Jones,
Kelly Clarkson,) this five-song introduction features melodies that
stick, rhythms that move, and lyrics that matter. “We can’t wait for the
world to hear each one of these songs,” Brooke adds. “And this is just
the beginning!”

Fox & Foal’s ultimate goal is that their work would be a fresh
expression of worship in a world desperately craving authenticity. “We
pray that God would allow us to help people worship in spirit and
truth,” Williams continues. “To sing of the promises of God, declare
proclamations of faith, and to find hope in the storm for years to
