ABOUT

About me:
I am currently a solo guy, former band guy. I used to play music for a living, now I just live to play music. I love writing, playing and recording. All my stuff is original, everything played by me. A few people have asked; everything you hear I did in my home studio.

The player currently is streaming my newest piece of work for the 2019 RPM Challenge. The record is called The Lost Art Of Listening.

Does anyone just sit and listen to a record these days? The idea was to make a record that was meant to be a sonic journey. So sit down and press play and don't worry about anything for about 47 minutes. ;)

For best results, listen at night.

Grab a drink, turn off the lights, turn up the hi-fi.

After the 9 songs of the record, the remaining songs in my player are from the previous years; I record a new batch of original music each year in conjunction with The RPM Challenge. The photos I have posted are the album covers in reverse years from 2019 through 2009. If you have ever thought about making a record of your songs, even if you have no intention of letting anyone hear it; check it out. It's a great event. The site is RPMChallenge.

I know some folks come by to listen every so often, so thank you for that. There's A LOT of great music out there, so the fact you take the time to listen to me is greatly appreciated. If you feel like hearing my older work, you can do it over at the Alonetone link. It's all free, as an aside. Thanks, as always, for listening and also for the nice notes you have sent me about the songs.

“Gary Fox is some lonewolf who's got a sweet basement studio. Someone that majored in microscopic vinyl inspection. He wrote his thesis on Big Star and Sweet.”
