Bio

Billy Fox is a writer and producer born and raised in Sydney. After wrapping up a stacked 2018, Sydney-based indie-electronic producer Billy Fox returns with his latest single offering, ‘Let’s Be Honest’, off his forthcoming EP ‘LUNG’ (due out early April).

Mixed by Chris Collins (Gang of Youths, Middle Kids, Ruby Fields) and mastered by Steve Smart (Vance Joy, Tash Sultana, Dean Lewis), ‘Let’s Be Honest’ combines sultry RNB grooves and slick brass with Billy’s emotive, crooning melodies to create a deliciously slinky mix that doesn’t skimp on the feels.

Billy’s Chet Faker-esque, soul-infused vocals drip with equal parts sex appeal and painful longing, rolling over funk-laden rhythms and spacious, intricately textured production to create a track that will get your heart thumping.

Billy Fox talks about the meaning behind ‘Let’s Be Honest’:

“This whole living experience is exceptional, but there’s still the feeling that we, individuals & communities, can be better on a whole range of levels. This song’s purpose is to reflect on this idea and give me a stark reminder that whatever I’m doing, I can always be better. Relationships allow this to happen- almost like holding a big mirror up to ourselves and challenging us to do better. It’s a beautiful thing.”

Billy Fox has traversed the country multiple times selling out his own headline shows and supporting the likes of Glass Animals, Sahara Beck, Harts and The Aston Shuffle.

Spotify have also been avid supporters, adding past tracks to playlists New Music Friday (AU/NZ), Fresh Finds, Brand New, Right Now, Just Chill, Office Studio and Low-Key Weekend.

The last few years have seen Billy Fox supported by multiple tastemaker blogs including The Line of Best Fit, Indie Shuffle, Pilerats, Purple Sneakers and Acid Stag, which resulted in a top ten charting position via Hype Machine’s esteemed ‘Now’ charts. He has also received radio play from national broadcaster triple j, as well as community radio stations FBi Radio, 4ZZZ, RTR FM, SYN, Radio Adelaide and Edge FM.

In the coming weeks, Billy Fox will reveal an accompanying music video for ‘Let’s Be Honest’.
