Review, Holiday Traditions and News!

Well with the Holidays starting I thought it might be a good time to discuss some things.
The album by the Billy K Band, “Outrun The Rain”. Is a blend of Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban and the like. Mostly upbeat and cleaver. It’s well worth the listen.
Other Albums coming out.

Les Fleurs Du Mal by Therion
Dec 4
Welcome to the Freakshow by Hinder
Warrior by Ke$ha

Holiday Tradition Arlo Guthrie Alice’s Restaurant Massacre.

Foxman……Crazy Like A Fox!

Foxman has a style of music that makes people take notice. Art rock covers a wide variety of music genres. This gives Foxman an enormous palette to create heart stopping music from.
I got the chance to ask him a few questions and here is what he shared with us.

How did you get started, little history bio basically?
I began playing bass when I was 19 years old and messed around with a few bands in the Illinois area, mostly playing cover songs. Around 1991 I moved to Florida and hooked up with a band called Tomorrow’s Party, who was in the process of releasing a self titled Cd of original music. My tenure with this band lasted for about 1 1/2 years and ended when I left to persue a career with the USPS, which lasted for about 12-13 years. During this time period I began writing/recording my own music using a very cheap cassette recorder, with me playing all the instruments (guitar, bass, drum machine, keys and vocals). I ended up with a library of about 40 songs, nothing professional, but enough to make me realize that writing music was something that I was meant to do. Around 2001, using a digital recorder, I released my debut Cd “Songs from The Gallery” (9 songs). I followed this release up with “Like The Freak You Are” (2005, 9 song Cd) and “Crazy Like a Fox” (2011, 13 song Cd). Ultimately, I have come to be very well known as a very creative songwriter whose music tends to cover multiple genres. If you are in the mood for something different, fun and a bit freaky, then please stop by and check out some music !! I am currently #1 on the local Alternative Charts at ReverbNation (#33 in the USA and #74 globally) http://www.reverbnation.com/foxman You can also hook up with me at http://www.facebook.com/FoxmanMusicHome

What or who inspired you?
I honestly have to say that the 2 bands that have inspired me the most are Pink Floyd and Nirvana.

What instruments do you play?
I currently play bass, acoustic/electric guitar, keyboards, drum machine and vocals.

What do you listen too?
I am open minded to all kinds of music (Blues, Rock, Metal, Grunge, Jazz, Country, Punk and Alternative). Though I am a victim of popular radio, I also spend a good part of my days at ReverbNation listening to other Independent musicians/bands.

What makes you happy? sad?
Though I can be a bit mischievous at times with my songwriting, I pride myself in my personal life on being one of the good people. It always makes my day to see people smiling. It also inspires me to see people going out of their way to help others. As far as what makes me sad, my answer would be greed !! There is more than enough money in this world for all of us to be wealthy and successful.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I am also an accomplished artist (paintings, collages, jewelry and even the voodoo dolls used on the front cover of my “Crazy Like A Fox” Cd). Some of my artwork, and all 3 Cd’s, are currently available at the Official Foxman Art Studio at http://www.foxman.etsy.com

If you could do anything you wanted what would it be?
I was born to be an artist/songwriter and there is nothing else that I would rather do.

Anything else you think people don’t already know about you that you want to share?
I am a shy, quiet, person in real life who was born on April Fools Day 🙂

Have you got another album in the works and/or music videos?
I have already begun to put together some song ideas for my 4th Cd release and I guarantee it will be a classic !! In the meantime, music videos have become my primary focus. A video for my haunting love song “Sweet Adelaide” has just been released and can be seen at my Official Foxman Video Channel at http://www.youtube.com/FOXMANMUSIC The video was filmed/directed over Halloween weekend by my good friend Kevin Killelea. I promise you, there will be many more !!

Your Occupy the Airwaves, what are your hopes for that?
Being an Independent means that it is almost impossible to get my music played on the air at regular radio stations. I am an ASCAP member, but that means very little when you consider all the money that the Major Labels have to work with to keep their bands in the forefront. My “Occupy The Airwaves” photo/slogan signifies my goal of eventually having my music played on the air. It also represents my personal campaign against greed in the Music Industry.

How hard has it been managing your own label and yourself?

Being the CEO and manager of Foxman Music has been a very time consuming endeavor, but I wouldn’t change one single moment of it for the world. The major disadvantage is that it cuts into the time I would normally use to play/practice guitar and write new songs. The major advantage is that I am learning every element of what it takes to establish a small business within the Music Industry.

I would like to thanks Foxman for his time, please check out all this links.
