In amongst this year’s COVID-19 lockdowns, and needing to fulfil that creative urge with no live gigs permitted, Acoustic Foxx went back into Crosstown Soundstudio to record some of his new songs with Joshua Whitehead once again, and emerged with his new single ‘This Time’ which promises to be his best work yet.
“This song is really close to my heart as are all my songs, but I think this is a tune a lot of people can really resonate with. We’ve all gone through the ups and downs and the extreme lows only to work your way back up again.”
‘Being predominately a solo artist, I’ve been playing this song live by myself for a little while now. I always had a bigger vision for this song and when it came time to record, I knew how it should sound and what elements it would need.
‘Joshua Whitehead at Crosstown Soundstudio helped me achieve this vision and I think we nailed it. The deeper we got into the recording process, the more our vision for the song became aligned.
‘In terms of instrumentation for this song I knew what I wanted and who I wanted to play those instruments. I’ve been very lucky to meet and work with some great musicians over the years and I was grateful they were happy to come and play on this track.
‘Lyrically, ‘This Time’ was born from a moment in time of loss, but it also reflected much more than that. I’d been there before and I’ve learnt that it all comes back to me. I have to be strong for me which will make me strong for everyone else around me.’
Delivering powerful acoustic-folk/alternative rock/grunge-inspired songs, Acoustic Foxx reveals a repertoire of material that evokes an immediate and unmistakable sense of personal connection for both the writer and listener.
Acoustic Foxx, aka Craig Williams, began cutting his teeth in the Australian live music scene in 2003 playing in original hard rock/grunge bands recording various EP’s and playing shows all around Victoria.
In 2012, he launched his solo career as Acoustic Foxx releasing his debut EP ‘Silence in Circles’ celebrating its release with shows all around Victoria and Tasmania. This was followed up by his debut album release ‘Guiding Light’ in 2016. 2019 saw the release of his second album ‘Blustery Winter’ which was recorded at Crosstown Soundstudio with Joshua Whitehead.
All releases manage to capture musically and lyrically the love, hope, anger, loss and pain that we all feel whilst weaving intimacy and heavy emotional undertones that have come to define his sound as Acoustic Foxx.
