Formed in Somerville, MA, the founding members, Alex and Ralph, decided to build the band and its music around the phrase, “honest words for honest people.” The band has since evolved with that goal in mind, and has continued to focus on creating simple, vulnerable, and evocative music for anyone who decides to listen.
Old Fox has steadily grown its fan base, booking and playing venues such as Great Scott, The Middle East, Lizard Lounge, Toad, Atwood’s Tavern, Ralph’s Rock Diner, and Gulu-Gulu Café. In early January 2019, Old Fox recorded a five song EP titled, Honest Words for Honest People, set to release on March 18th, 2019. Their first single titled, I Hope the Children Have Your Hairline, was released on March 1st, 2019. The band sold out their EP release show within two hours of its announcement. A second show was added to the same date to accommodate demand, also selling out just days after its announcement.
