KEV FOX ON THE WEB: www.facebook.com/KevFoxandTheLastDance
Kev has spent the last 3 years on and off the road with his band through Europe/Uk/Ireland clocking up some serious mileage and selling over 5000 copies of his first EP ‚Help yourself‘. During this period, whilst on tour in Poland. Kev met Andrzej Smolik, a very well respected record producer (Winner Of The Golden Ear Award 2011 Previous Winners include Daniel Lanois,(u2) Brian Eno, Martin Hannet, Joy Division) at a show in Warsaw. Andrzej invited Kev to his studio to put a track together.
The track L.O.O.T.T was featured on the album Smolik 4 which went into the Polish charts at number 3 on November 12th, outselling Rod Stewart and Kings of Leon that week. The album hit gold status and stayed in the top 10 for 6 months. After playing numerous sold out shows after the release of Smolik 4, Kev Fox and his band took some time out to record Kev’s debut album ‚King For A Day‘
This is no ordinary début. Kev and his producer/engineer John Lawrence (Gorky’s Zycotic Minci) made the decision early on that the album should be as live as possible and that location was a huge factor. After some long conversations they chose Cefn-Y-Waun Chapel in Deinolen, which was built by local quarrymen in 1838 in the countryside of North Wales.
Kev’s Début album will be officially released and in stores from April 2nd 2012 on Gusstaff Records and to follow will be a European tour which will take the band through 13 countries.
