Biography

With the nature of popular music today, it is easy to be jaded by music that simply has no emotion, no appreciation for the musicians that laid the musical foundation for others to tread upon, and no musicality that complements it. Fortunately for fervent music lovers, there is still a musician that plays every note with the same conviction as the one before, putting his blood, sweat and tears to make music that is meaningful to not only an audience, but to himself. He has a thousand stories to tell with only an old guitar and unbridled emotion. His name is Jonathan Fox.


Jonathan Fox is no stranger to music, having spent a lifetime surrounded by the sounds and textures of musicians like Stevie Ray Vaughn, The Doobie Brothers, The Eagles, Eric Clapton and the Beatles. With a myriad of opportunities in front of him as a young man, Fox could not resist the pull of playing music, using his guitar and voice like an artist using different paints from his palette to create something unique, something organic, something real. Fox wasted no time in reaching for his dreams, playing as many shows as he could in his native Dallas, Texas, quickly gaining a reputation as a solid musical act, capable of handling music with a sense of ingenuity and originality. Having played in the Texas music scene from a young age, Fox is quickly developing a repertoire of uniqueness and captivating presence having played at many of DFW’s historic venues and now quickly gaining a following in Austin, along with playing with other great acts of the genre such as Adam Hood, Lee Brice and The Randy Rogers Band.

With a voice that resonates with the purity of country and the blues past, Fox, wielding his guitar like a rustic gunslinger, commands a stage presence and unique musicality that brings a certain type of soul that many musicians never fully capture, not only as an artist of performance, but a powerful songwriter with a lyrical balance that is sure to intrigue all listeners. With a music scene that is blossoming with the advent of a new year, you should owe it to yourself to see Fox and company do what they do best: play music.

Lyrics

If You Don't Want Me To

Written By: Jonathan Fox

I’m sitting here in this rocking chair,
Hoping that you might change your mind,
So if you need me I’ll be here,
I’m hoping that you might come to find,

That I ain’t long, long gone, but baby don’t turn off the phone,
Just because I said I was over you,
Cause I don’t know the words to say, I don’t wanna go away,
If you don’t want me to,

It’s starting to poor down rain,
But I can’t find the means to get up,
Cause I don’t know if you’re on your way,
But lately I haven’t had much luck,

Cause I ain’t long, long gone, but baby don’t turn off the phone,
Just because I said I was over you,
Cause I don’t know the words to say, I don’t wanna go away,
If you don’t want me to.

Baby I have lost my mind,
Just being without you,
And baby life hasn’t been so kind,
So maybe something ain’t true,

Cause I ain’t long, long gone, but baby don’t turn off the phone,
Just because I said I was over you,
Cause I don’t know the words to say, I don’t wanna go away,
If you don’t want me to.

Coming Around

Written By: Jonathan Fox

I waited so damn long,
Just to hear you on the telephone,
But don’t go calling me back now,
Cause my jeans are torn,
And my heart is worn,
Baby you didn’t show me how,

So don’t call me now, it’s too late now, the end of the show,
Cuase I’m gone baby and the rest, the rest we’ll never know,
I’m leavin’ town and going down, all the way to the ground,
And I ain’t coming around,

She called me when two months has passed,
Middle of the night after last,
Just begging me to come back home,
Should I turn back for good,
Or go on like I know I should,
Baby maybe I’m not alone,

So don’t call me now, it’s too late now, the end of the show,
Cuase I’m gone baby and the rest, the rest we’ll never know,
I’m leavin’ town and going down, all the way to the ground,
And I ain’t coming around.

Love's Flaws

Written By: Jonathan Fox

Everybody’s got ideas about how it should be,
But if that things love, I wouldn’t take it for free,
It’s in movies and on TV,
But I don’t want that for me,

Cause baby love, love has flaws,
So take me back to where I was,
And I may miss a woman’s touch,
But baby love, love has flaws,

Baby when I met you it was love at first sight,
How did you not know that it would be alright,
But as it turns out I don’t know you at all,
I didn’t get your number or a way to call,

Cause baby love, love has flaws,
So take me back to where I was,
And I may miss a woman’s touch,
But baby love, love has flaws.

Can I Take You Home Tonight

Written By: Jonathan Fox

We went out a couple times, it was nothing too big,
But I can’t say that I didn’t, feel something,
We got to talking, we got to laughing, it was all alright,
Can I take you home tonight?

Can I take you home tonight,
Can I take you home tonight,
When I look into your eyes, I’ve gotta know,
Can I take you home tonight?

I was supposed to take you home, we just drove around,
I’ve been looking for so long, and I can’t believe I’ve found,
I ain’t rushing, to conclusions out of my sight,
Can I take you home tonight?

Can I take you home tonight,
Can I take you home tonight,
When I look into your eyes, I’ve gotta know,
Can I take you home tonight?

I call you up to see if we’re still alright, but you can’t go out tonight,
If you still want to, tell me it’s right or it’s wrong, don’t keep me hanging on,

Can I take you home tonight,
Can I take you home tonight,
When I look into your eyes, I’ve gotta know,
Can I take you home tonight?
