"FØNX has always been a deeply independent artist. Largely self-taught, his work nestles between the margins of R&B and pop, hip-hop and electro, all while treading its own path" - Clash Magazine
Shortly after graduating from The Brit School FØNX gigged his way around the South East and London circuit, playing at festivals such as Cornbury Festival, Barn on The Farm, LeeFest and Isle Of Wight Festival.
He self released two EP’s written and produced solely in his bedroom, which gained attention and support from BBC Introducing’s Abbie McCarthy and airplay from BBC 1 Huw Stephens, BBC 2 Dermot O’Leary and BBC 6 Tom Robinson. This interest led to songs being playlisted in over 600+ Caffe Nero stores gaining over 2.8 million streams on Spotify.
Around this time FØNX also co-wrote and featured on Sonny Alven's single ‘Irregular Love’ in 2015 which gained major radio airplay in Norway, playlisting in stores around the globe and has amassed over 7million streams.
After working with Grammy Award-Winning Producer Tommaso Colliva (Muse, Franz Ferdinand) FØNX started releasing music under his alias and during 2017 released 'Can't Get Enough' which hit no.10 in the Main Club Charts with a club remix by Vargenta.
With new songs on the horizon and talks of a second EP release later this year FØNX is already back in the studio and working on a new live show. If previous EP ‘Jack Rabbits’ is anything to go by, the next EP will no doubt be packed with wholesome grooves and masterful songwriting.
With ongoing support from BBC Introducing, features on Channel 4, Sky TV Shows, a performance at Isle of Wight Festival, support from Music Crown social media channels (3.4m+), Spotify’s editorial playlists features including ‘New Music Friday, ‘Soultronic’, ‘Chilled Pop Hits’, and ‘Fresh Finds’ reaching over 1million playlist follower reach all together, a feature on Apple Music’s ‘Best of the week’ playlist, playlisting in Zara stores globally and playlisting in Body Shop stores FØNX is undoubtedly one to watch in 2019.
