60 Seconds With… Darcy Fox


So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band? My name is Darcy Fox and I am a soloist singer/songwriter. I play guitar, sing and use a loop pedal. 


What do you reckon people will say you sound like? In the past I have been likened to a female Ed Sheeran (world’s biggest compliment!)


What do you love about making music? The way that I am able to work out my own feelings and share my stories through my songs and that indescribable feeling I get when I get to perform on stage.


What do you hate about the music industry? I hate that it can be so hard for independent artists to get recognition and exposure.


If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why? I wouldn’t have to travel in time because lucky for me they’re still alive but I would love to show Ed Sheeran my stuff (I’m a huge fan). He is one of the most phenomenal performers I have ever seen and since his live show I have been striving to improve myself so that one day I might be able to put on a show so entertaining! He is also an incredible songwriter.


If you could assassinate one person or band from popular music, who would it and why? Robin Thicke! Blurred Lines really should not exist.


What can a punter expect from your live show? Original acoustic songs with a lot of looping and some fast paced lyrics.


What’ve you got to sell CD-wise? I’ve got an album that I released in 2012 that’s made up of 13 original songs.


When’s the gig and with who? It’s on Monday March 10 with the other regional finalists Alkali Fly (Croydon), Baking Blind (Dingley), Residual (Geelong), Listerdale (Wodonga), The Rims (Alphington), Bel Air (Ballarat), Worship The Fallen (Mildura) and Great John Himself (Airport West). With headlining acts Remi, Allday and The Smith Street Band.


Anything else to add?

You don’t wanna miss this gig, all of bands are amazing and I have a feeling it’s going to be an awesome day.
