Year End Update! 

Dear Awesome Foxfeather Friends, 

What a fun year we have had!!! We played 82 shows, bought a van, toured to two new states, played at some of our favorite festivals, successfully funded a Kickstarter project (thanks to YOU) and used the money to record and release a brand new, full length, self titled album! We could not be more proud of ourselves, or excited about opportunities that await us in 2017. 

We began the year off with a bang and bought our first “band van!” After searching relentlessly for the perfect fit, we were swept off our feet by a gorgeous, mauve 1988 Chevy G20. With fuzzy pink interior, original wood paneling, four captain’s chairs and a bench seat that converts to a bed with the push of a button, we knew we had found our perfect chariot. We named her Barb and drove her over the mountains from Grand Junction in a snow storm. 

In March we took off on tour, heading down to New Mexico, Texas, and hitting Southern Colorado on our way back up. We played The Cowgirl Bar in Santa Fe, NM, The 806 in Amarillo, TX, spent three days touring SXSW in Austin, TX, celebrated St. Patrick’s Day at Eskes in Taos, NM, partied down with the people of Creede, CO at TommyKnockers, and ended it all with our friends at Taco Del Gnar in beautiful Ridgway, CO.  Our trusty Barb carried us the whole way. (Note: the below picture is missing our dear friend and drummer Ben Batchelor, but it does feature our new friend John C. Abney. He opened for us at The Sherbino Theater in Ridgway. Check out his amazing music at www.johncalvinabney.com  )

The summer brought with it warm weather and a full schedule for Foxfeather. We were fortunate enough to be invited to play festivals like the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, The Jamestown 4th of July Festival, Spread the Word Festival, Denver Derby Days, The Boulder Creek Festival, The Bolder Boulder, The Lyons Film Festival, and The Longmont Summer Concert Series. Between these we were asked to play multiple weddings and private events and were graciously received at the many local venues that have been so continuously supportive of us and of all local music. 

When we weren’t playing, we were planning. After several meetings with producer Steve Jagoda and engineer Jay Elliott we decided it was time to begin our newest album. Our previous EP, “Foul Moon,” had been successfully funded on Kickstarter, thanks to fans like you, and we decided it was time to give it another shot. We built and launched the campaign and began work on the album (fingers crossed.) Investments began to stream in and build up, and within our time period, with the support and love of our friends, fans, and community, we had 94 backers and raised a total of $12,396. We were shocked, awed, and so very humbled by the level of support that we received, and we extend our deepest, lasting gratitude. 

Our producer, Jagoda, made his way from the Bronx, and we spent the next two weeks recording at Jay Elliott’s IntroVertigo Studios in Boulder, CO. From April 5 to April 12, 2016 we recorded 11 songs and found a level of magic and connection within the group that we hadn’t realized existed. It was the best seven days of our lives. 

Now it was on to mixing, mastering, duplication and album design. We were fortunate to work with the amazing photographer Kirsten Cohen (www.kirstencohenphotography.com), tireless designer, and good friend, Stephanie Sizemore, G&J Audio in Union CIty, NJ, and Justin Kristal at Copycats Media. 

The full-length, self-titled album was released October 1st. We celebrated with a huge party at LeftHand Brewing Co. in Longmont, CO and were humbled yet again by the amazing support shown by our community. Following up the LeftHand show, we embarked on an “Album Release Tour,” stopping by old stomping grounds like Durango, CO where we played The Balcony Bar, and Ridgway, CO where we were warmly welcomed at The Sherbino Theater. Our final release party was on October 21st at The Walnut Room in Denver, CO.  If you’d like to hear the new album you can find it in our online store at www.foxfeathermusic.com/store 

In the last two months we have continued to play shows, rehearse, and are working on new material. We have big plans for 2017, including a couple more tours and even more festivals. Thank you all for your continued support, you are a valued presence in our community. Be well and Happy Holidays! 

One last note! We are thrilled to have been invited by our dear friends The Gasoline Lollipops to open for their album release at The Fox Theater in Boulder, CO. The show is February 14th (yes, Valentine’s Day) and we can’t wait. Tickets are for salehttps://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/1382037

Sincerely yours, 

Foxfeather

Happy 2016 

Happy New Year! We are fresh off a 3 week break and cannot wait to get back into gigging and recording. Currently we are in cahoots with a producer in Brooklyn and a sound engineer here in Boulder and we are in planning and pre-production for our new album!!!!! We are looking at summer for a release date and soon we will have a link to a crowd funding project if you would like to be a part of this adventure with Foxfeather. This winter has proved to be an inspired one, and we have been restlessly writing and arranging. Please stay in touch for new updates!!

 

It's been quite the year and we have some big news!!!  

Hey friends! Hope you have all had a great 2015. Foxfeather has been quite the busy band as well. With 78 shows in 2015, including four small tours, we have been moving constantly, meeting new people, writing new material and honing in on our sound. We couldn't be happier or prouder of all that we have accomplished this year, and are very excited to announce that we are preparing to record a new project!! While still ironing out some of the details, we have found a studio to work with and will begin pre-production after the Thanksgiving holiday. Please stay tuned for updates on our progress and for an opportunity for you to become involved in our next album! Stay safe, warm and happy! 
Love, 
Foxfeather
