The Playhouse welcomes Canada’s “most ubiquitous side-man” Kevin Fox

by on November 10, 2010

Halifax native Kevin Fox will once again hit the Playhouse stage on Tuesday November 16 at 8pm. Fans may remember Fox’s last appearance at the Playhouse, as a musician for singer/songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk.

Fox is a revered multi-instrumentalist, sought-after arranger/composer and recording artist, and has been dubbed  Canada’s “most ubiquitous side-man”.  Now, four years after the release of his debut album Come Alive, Kevin returns to his exceptional talents as a singer-songwriter with the much-anticipated release of Songs for Cello and Voice.  Kevin combines his signature instrument, which he skillfully bows, plucks, taps and loops, along with his charismatic voice, to create a lush and captivating musical tapestry of cello-driven folk/pop.  From his distinctive originals like “Signs” and “In the Eyes of You”, to innovative covers of Kate Bush’s “Army Dreamers” and Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams”, Songs for Cello and Voice showcases Kevin’s unique talent and reinforces his astonishing artistic scope.

After spending the last three years composing arrangements for the likes of Dolores O’Riordan (The Cranberries) and Kathleen Edwards, recording with artists as diverse as Raine Maida and Celine Dion, and touring extensively with musicians ranging from Chantal Kreviazuk and Shaye to Tom Cochrane, Kevin Fox is ready to step from side-stage back into the spotlight with this new recording of 10 songs written specifically for cello and voice.

Come see why everyone’s eyes are on Kevin Fox, as he and his trio offer up a sumptuous tasting of his musical and creative energy.

Tickets for Kevin Fox’s November 16 performance are available at the Fredericton Playhouse box office 1-866-884-5800, or online at www.theplayhouse.ca.
