Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Most recent release, Diving for Pearls, 2000
At various times while listening to the album, I thought of Holly Near, Frente!, Suzanne Vega, Joni Mitchell, and Kirsty MacColl. Go figure :-). But the best songs on it didn't remind me of anyone--the sure sign of an original. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Fox's first album shows an artist of great substance, albeit not one likely to revolutionize music in the near future. I don't know if she will become a headliner, but at the very least she can look forward to a successful career as a niche artist, and quite possibly more. (email@example.com)
Recommended first album:
Diving for Pearls is her debut album
2000--Vixen Records--VIX 002
I would rate this upper-mid priority, in the aggregate. I can't say it's imperative that you run, not walk, to acquire it, but if you do, it will be anything but a waste of effort. You will enjoy this. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Allie Fox--vocals, vocal harmonies, acoustic guitars
John Rutherford--acoustic guitar, slide guitar, vocal harmonies
This album is an object lesson in the need to listen to the whole thing before trying to evaluate it. It got off to a slow start, but gradually grew on me.
