From UNITED KINGDOM •
London based singer/songwriter Fox Jackson has been enamoured by music from as young as he can remember. Inspired by the likes of artists such as Earth Wind and Fire, Prince and Pharrell Williams, his music blends funk-fuelled melodies, sexy vocals and dance-worthy beats, creating a vibrant and distinct sound which is undeniably his own.
His career in the entertainment industry began at just 11 years old, when he landed the lead role as Billy Elliot, in the hit West End musical, "Billy Elliot the Musical". His time there solidified his desire to be on stage, while also pushing him to dive deeper into the world of music. Following multiple roles on both stage and TV, Fox soon made an easy transition to his first love and true calling, music. Discovering his own sound and style, Fox has since been crafting music, with the intention to make listeners smile.
Following on from "Behind Closed Doors" is his latest single “Like You In Every Way” - written alongside producer Nick Burns, this floorfiller track is more than just a love song. This is the ice-melting, love-professing, warm sunshine single written during a transition period of Jackson’s relationship, carrying a message of trust and love regardless of doubts. The artist confides, “There is nothing so deadly to a fresh relationship as too many questions, sometimes you just have to let go of those fears and trust that you want to be together.” This is a positive, comforting song sure to put a smile on your face.
The track comes in like a glowing summer breeze of joy and positivity. The guitar has a strong melodic flow layered over the tasty, funky drums forging a rush of energy and movement. With a slapping bass line and a highly intoxicating, dance-worthy fluidity, “Like You In Every Way” features funky riffs and a rich, groovy soundscape, like caramel for your eardrums. The sleek vocals from Jackson are smooth and romantic, glazed in a cheeky energy that gives an undeniable charm to the song.
With an underlying wholesome tone, the organic track brims in authenticity and honesty. Jackson shares, “Music, as with all things in life, is about love. Music for me isn’t just about love, music is a love language. Music interprets my feelings, the feelings of those dear to me and helps me understand my place in the sea of those relation-’ships’”.
Hoping that his music will transport listeners to the golden age of funk, soul and disco, Fox Jackson is producing music for escapism and delivering something that will make you question which decade we are in.
