Dark winter days lead Dover Lynn Fox to discover hope in her new single ‘Winter Son’. This is a driving americana track that has traces of fellow Canadian chanteuse Sarah Mclachlan with tight interwoven vocal harmonies.  It evokes driving across the wintery landscape of South Ontario on a dark grey day.

In the lyrics, Fox explores the uncertainty that was brought on by her father’s cancer diagnosis. Reflecting on this and the creation of the song she says, “I believe my initial intention (though songwriting doesn’t always feel intentional to me) was to write a song about the sadness and fear that I felt.” Fox says of the single “And then I began writing and the words flowed out and a different story took form, one without fear or darkness, but instead light, connection and faith.”
