Welcome to Week 2 of The Twang Factor 2. Our guest this week is Chris Fox who hails from the beautiful city of Cambridge.
Chris Fox describes himself as “an independent musician and loop station chemist”. He has established himself as a regular presence in his home city’s music scene and has appeared at the prestigious Cambridge Folk Festival. Chris’s music draws on elements of americana, folk, country and blues. His songs reflect “thought-provoking topics and humourous insights on life”. The song that Chris has chosen to perform for the Twang Factor 2 is called ‘Bird of Paradise’ and is from his most recent album.
You can find out more about Chris by accessing his excellent website or by checking out his Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds. If you just want to go straight to the music, you can check him out on Soundcloud
Like to enter The Twang Factor yourself? or know someone else that might? Here’s how to get involved:
Send us a link to you performing an original song. Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org We will then view it and if you stand out from the crowd, we will be in touch. Chosen artists will then be invited to make an exclusive recording, like the one above, for AUK which will appear on the site in one of our weekly slots.
A few things to note:
- This is aimed at new and/or relatively unknown artists.
- Despite the name, the feature is open to artists working in the broad americana/folk range – you know the kind of stuff we dig.
- Your material must be original – no covers please.
Good luck. We look forward to hearing from you – and tell your friends!
