If The Postal Service and The Swell Season had a charming and musical Filipino baby, Foxfur would be it.

Biography

Named after a nebula 2,700 light years away, Foxfur, aka John-Flor Sisante, attempts to evoke in the listener an otherworldly sense of wonder through his music. Citing major musical influences ranging from The Postal Service to Sufjan Stevens to The Swell Season, Foxfur's music honors them but also goes in a different direction.

Foxfur melds honest lyrics with both acoustic and electronic arrangements seamlessly. Not one to mince musical ideas, every note, melody, lyric, and noise in his recordings serves a purpose, which is to help the listener connect with his music. When playing live, Foxfur uses the loop pedal in conjunction with his voice, acoustic guitar, and ukulele, to create unique, multi-layered works of musical art.

Foxfur has opened up for Norah Jones at The Living Room NYC, played at the Great South Bay Music Festival and the Huntington Summer Arts Festival in Long Island. This past Spring, Foxfur opened up for Mike Doughty on a few show dates, and has been working on a new LP, which he plans to release in the Summer/early Fall of 2011.

Lyrics

Para Ti, Mi Fuego De Amor

Written By: John-Flor Sisante

i saw an ice cream cone
lying on the sidewalk, all alone
melting on the pavement like it's given up

that's what I'm feeling too
i'm splitting apart when I'm not with you
I am not your fusion boy, so could you stop
throwing away
the chemistry
that we have built together
you've left me wanting more
and if I could
have you I would
I'd be so good to you

ch:
your face is beautiful
your taste is wonderful
your grace is elegant
your mind is intelligent
your mouth is heaven to my ear
your voice makes bad things disappear
oh my gosh
I am heart over head for you

My candle burns both ends
analyzing you and every word you've said
i hate to bear the bad news
but I figured out
that
I blame you for my state
I was eating leftovers from your plate
still it was the greatest meal I've ever ate

"Come fly away with me" I want to say
but I have no game
I am too sensitive
too really try
I'd rather die
than be the guy for you

your face is beautiful
your taste is wonderful
your grace is elegant
your mind is intelligent
your mouth is heaven to my ear
your voice makes bad things disappear
oh my gosh
I am heart over head for you

- lyrics, music, arrangement by John-Flor SIsante

The Best I Can

Written By: John-Flor Sisante

I wanna love you the best I can
sometime it ain't easy
I wanna love you the best I can
sometime it ain't easy

you are more whole than you think
you are so alone
but loneliness isn't the enemy

well, my love always will light up

- words, music, arrangement by John-Flor Sisante
