Biography

Denver Westword Rock Band of the Year 2013

Denver, CO – Make no mistake: Fox Street reeks of the roadhouses and West Texas honky-tonks of the deep-south that inspired their signature sound. The guys are a crushing band with tons of funk, rhythm, and soul. They're an all star outfit featuring up to 7 pieces with a pounding rhythm section, stellar lead guitar work and gritty vocals. No one really has any idea where front man Jonathan “Skippy” Huvard channels his soulful, whiskey soaked vocals and frenetic stage presence but the result is a blistering powerhouse of sound drawing comparisons to JJ Grey & Mofro, Galactic and The Revivalists.

The band kicked off 2013 with a show at the Pink Garter Theater in Jackson, WY which sold out in advance. It’s been full steam ahead this year including many high-profile festival slots in new markets like Ohio and Pennsylvania. Both the L.A. Times and Chicago Tribune named the band a “must see” at MusikFest in Bethlehem, PA. Denver Westwoord named Fox Steet “Rock Band of the Year” in 2013, a huge honor in a state and city with such a rich music scene. The band is currently on tour behind their critically acclaimed sophomore release Tough Talk.

Tough Talk was recorded over the summer of 2012 at Scanhope Sound in Littleton, CO and engineered by Josh Fairman (New Mastersounds, Ivan Neville, Kinetix). The album features Joe Tatton of The New Mastersounds on organ, pedal steel by Grammy-award-winner John Macy and The Black Swans on backup vocals.

“It’s been an incredible last three years" Huvard said. "This second album has been a long time in the making, and we’re very proud of the results. We think it has a more mature and full sound and is a terrific reflection of where we are now as a band. Playing all over the country in the last two years has really helped us come together. We’ve added members and are exploring a richer sound than we’ve ever toured with before. We still bring a party every night but there’s also a fresh level of sophistication on stage that only comes from hundreds of shows on the road and thousands of hours on stage.”

If their opening slots on multiple lengthy national tours with funk legends The New Mastersounds and direct support for bands like Tedeschi Trucks Band and Trombone Shirty are any indication, Fox Street is a band that is poised to break through into the mainstream at any moment. There’s a reason why artists like Papa Mali, Robert Randolph, Brian Jordan, Nigel Hall, Stanton Moore, Tony Hall, Corey Henry, The Motet, George Porter Jr., and others have sat in extensively with the band: musicians realize these guys have serious chops and the sound is some serious fun.
