Biography

From the driving, sexy version of Leonard Cohen's "Closing Time", through their own exciting originals, to the grand finale when "Father Mike" steps out to lead a high energy and wacky version of "Oh Mary", STONEFOX delivers a show that will make you smile your face off.

Anika Johnson, Barb Johnston, Suzy Wilde and Mike O'Hara, with rhythm section guys Andrew Kekewich and Tye Rowles, write fine, fine songs and deliver them with panache and sensitivity, drawing inspiration from such songwriters as Brian Wilson, Joni Mitchell, and Robbie Robertson. It was possibly those influences (or the latest addition of an accordion to the act!) that led NOW magazine reviewer Evan Davies to dub them "a collective of revivalists"! Reviewing their debut cd, "The Things I Wouldn't Know About", he said "it's apparent that this Toronto-based (group) is an exceptionally talented bunch" and spoke of their  "serious potential".

Lyrics

The Party

Written By: Stonefox

Won’t you permit me to decorate the party?

Won't you forgive me for being what I am?

I’ll sit on the couch ends, I’ll laugh at your funny friends and

Listen as you go about the things I wouldn’t know about

Wont make much sound 'cause
It’s a gift to be around
Here mmmm

I’m wearing my good clothes
I put some powder on my nose
and you're so appealing with me at your side
They like me I think so
They smile at me up on the patio
I dont even wonder wny nobody looks me in the eye

The Ice is Broken but I don’t speak unless I’m spoken to
mmm

The Ice is Broken but I don’t speak unless I’m spoken to
mmm oooh ohhhh
