Foxy and the Sound began as the musical baby of Gracie Finnigan-Fox. After graduating from Berklee College of Music in Boston, she decided it was time to give the west coast a try (sunlight!! Glorious sunlight!) and made her way out to Los Angeles. There, armed with only her songs and unbridled enthusiasm, she started making her way, getting to know the music scene and the musicians in her new habitat. After some trial and error, she had the good fortune of meeting keyboard player Jeff Bauer, and they began to play together, just for kicks. Jeff brought in drummer Scott Jones, who brought in bass player Jason Lobell, and the rag-tag little group began performing around LA.
While it began as just fun, they soon found they shared a similar passion for funky, soulful rock--the kind of classic, no-holds-barred rock you rarely hear anymore. Knowing that you must always be the change you wish to see in the world, our heroes decided that they would be the ones to make that music, and began writing and performing in earnest. Still--something was missing. Luckily, that missing piece came to them in the God-sent form of guitarist Aron Ortega.
It seemed that things were starting to really come together…until Scott had to leave the band for a job in the equally sunny Texas. Saddened by the loss of their goofy bandmate, but determined to continue, the band reached out to drummer (and, coincidentally, fellow Berklee grad) Sean Rainey. The chemistry was instantaneous. And thus…Foxy and the Sound was born. So gird your loins, lads and ladies…'cause they aim to take over the world with some sweet, sassy rock n' roll, and you better believe they won't stop 'til they drop.
