ACOUSTIC FOXX
New Single 'This Time' OUT NOW "Great songwriting with depth & darkness" - AMNplify Singer songwriter, Melbourne Australia
biography

Offering a unique blend of genres and sensibilities with a knack for capturing emotional intimacy and undertones in his song writing, Acoustic Foxx makes for a soothing escape from the world. A dark acoustic / indie folk sound taking inspiration from Seattle’s 90’s Grunge movement and delivered in a very George Harrison way.

It was during the spring of 2012 that Acoustic Foxx, the creative voice of Melbourne based guitarist, singer, and songwriter Craig Williams was first born/heard. Initially in venues all around Victoria and Tasmania playing alongside some of Australia’s finest talent and then on his debut EP ‘Silence in Circles’. Like many musicians before him, Craig’s passion for music was born early listening in on his father’s Beatles records and holding his Uncle’s guitars, and was soon inspired to play guitar and inevitably start a band.

Craig cut his teeth playing in hard rock bands Precious Nothing and Ownkind playing shows all over Victoria and releasing various studio recorded EP’s with each band. In the background, he was also busy writing solo acoustic songs which led to releasing a couple of solo EP’s with accompanying videos under the name Craig Williams. In the aftermath of the hard rock bands, Craig decided to take this solo venture 10 steps further creating a new identity, starting from scratch by stepping out into the world as Acoustic Foxx.

As Acoustic Foxx continued promoting his debut EP and playing live shows in Melbourne and Interstate, he was busily writing songs and crafting demos for what would become the ambitious debut album “Guiding Light”. Released in early 2016 with its first single & video ‘Practiced Goodbyes’ it was supported again with a busy run of shows and gained positive reviews of the album.

“Let us Pray” would be the second single and video from the album with the video being described as “dark and brooding magic”. AMNplify describe it as “an incredibly mysterious and dark acoustic-folk track, is truly matched in the creation of its music video”.

In 2018 Acoustic Foxx went into Crosstown Soundstudios to work with one of his favourite producers Joshua Whitehead and emerged with his second album, 'Blustery Winter'. Released in early 2019 ‘Blustery Winter’ featured 12 new tracks from Acoustic Foxx that really highlight his artistry and showcasing how truly talented he is across genres, and across instruments. Blustery Winter invites us on a journey like no other.

Trevor Petrie from Poppet Head Records explains: Blustery Winter opens with a singing slide guitar over deep tones of a detuned acoustic guitar. As a big fan of 90’s grunge and post-grunge alternative rock, I was instantly taken to a familiar place. Foxx’s vocals are soothing, with haunting harmonies that have me picturing myself standing in a post-apocaliptic wasteland and thinking we could have avoided this bleak existence if only we’d taken heed of the warning signs.

On the back of his previous two albums having been forced into isolation during 2020’s Covid-19 lockdowns, Foxx used the opportunity to record his new track ‘This Time’ with Joshua Whitehead at Crosstown Studios. The result is a polished, sonically intense track that synthesises alternative rock, grunge and folk. With a bluesy, yearning harmonica solo for good measure.

“More than just a confident guitar ballad, ‘This Time’ offers a post-grunge sound and showcases mature lyrics that come straight from experience. A sense of unknowing and loss is at the forefront of this poignant track and it definitely tugs on the heartstrings. His gripping vocals take listeners on a journey through ups and downs. Lyrics like “Well the tides have turned and I’ve lost my mind,” feel particularly pertinent in today’s climate where we all feel a little lost and uncertain” says Forte Magazine.

‘This Time’ is available digitally everywhere, keep an eye out for another new single before the end of 2020.
