Phillip Fox knows why he is here, and knows what he loves. After spending 6 years on the road with the Phillip Fox
Band, he’s taking a breath and looking ahead towards what’s next. We sit down (for what ends up being my longest interview yet!) and talk about a lot of good stuff. His history, growing up in Detroit, his high school rock band gig, and his thoughts on the craft of songwriting and what sometimes passes for it.

He talks also about the disbanding of the Phillip Fox Band, how that happened, why it happened, and why it happened the way it did. Many fans were shocked and disappointed about the suddenness of it all, and here Phillip takes some time to work through that.

He’s a thoughtful, insightful dude, and knows his priorities. I really enjoyed talking to him. I hope you enjoy it.

Music shared in this episode includes “You Are The Girl”, “We All Lose Something”, and “Don’t Forget Me”, all from Phillip Fox Band’s Final album, Heartland. You’ll also hear Phillip perform a relatively new song called “Big Enough To Wither”, just for me (and you!).  You can find his music (and a bunch of other merch) on mad sale at the band’s website, phillipfoxband.com
