Rock ‘n’ roll has rarely been as smart, soulful or satisfying than it has in the hands of The Posies. During an on/off career that’s stretched across four decades, the Seattle-rooted outfit, led by musical polymaths Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow, have shaped and re-shaped their muse, creating one of the more compelling catalogues in modern pop.
With SOLID STATES, their 8th album, the Posies mark dramatic changes in the lives, the music, the evolution of the band.
When the Posies long time drummer, Darius, died suddenly and unexpectedly last year, Posies founding members Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow were devastated. Hard as it was to continue without such a close friend and great musician, the moment called for a reinvention. For now… the idea of the band getting into a room and banging out the music, garage band style, was over. The ideas coming from Jon and Ken were fragile and the moods contemplative. Death, divorce, loss.
Even the joys of life are fleeting enough as to be treated with care and respect.
Of course, the Posies still retain their legendary melodic abilities, their trademark vocal harmonies and their lyrical agility. The band has always been exploring, growing. The multiyear gaps between albums are typically spent in countless other projects that bring new skills, sounds, experiences and people to the picture. The band will present the album live in a new format, incorporating laptop elements along with guitars, keyboards and drums. As artists, the band feels it’s their duty to take risks and explore.
With a voice echoing Jeff Buckley, the arrangement dexterity of Nick Drake, and the explorative spirit of Thom Yorke, David Tyler Fox is an emerging artist who has a passion for touring.
David has toured and recorded with Ken Stringfellow (Big Star, The Posies, R.E.M)
and members of Gregory Alan Isakov. He has performed at a KEXP event and on stage at eTown. His mesmerizing debut album, Aquarian Dream, was featured as Album of the Day on iTunes.
Recently relocated from Colorado to Austin, TX, David is quickly becoming a fixture in the Live Music Capital of the World, having made his Texas debut by supporting The Posies at a sold out show at Cactus Cafe.
Embarking on his 3rd U.S. tour this summer, David Tyler Fox exhibits a remarkable enthusiasm for creative expression, passionate showmanship, and the genuine desire to connect with appreciative audiences everywhere. He is currently available to support or headline. Best markets: Denver/Boulder, Seattle, Portland, Memphis, Austin.
