Coming from a musical background FØNX started learning guitar at the age of seven and was soon introduced to rap and hip hop, sparking his enthusiasm to start writing lyrics and create backing tracks from samples.
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 which were written and produced solely in his bedroom which gained attention and support from BBC Introducing’s Abbie McCarthy and radio airplay from BBC Radio 1 Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 2 Dermot O’Leary and BBC 6 Tom Robinson.
This interest led to songs being playlisted in over 600+ Caffe Nero stores and gained over 2.8 million streams on Spotify.
Around this time FØNX also co-wrote and featured on Norway producer Sonny Alven single ‘Irregular Love’ in 2015 which gained a lot of 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, Damon Albarn) FØNX started releasing music under his alias and during the summer 2017 released his single 'Can't Get Enough' which reached no.10 in the Main Club Charts with a club remix by VARGENTA.
With great support from BBC Introducing, sync on Channel 4, playlisting in Zara and Body Shop stores and Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’, 'Soultronic' and 'Chilled Pop Hits' editorial playlist features, Apple Music’s ‘Best of the Week’ playlist and over 14 million streams achieved as an unsigned independent artist and songwriter, FØNX is currently writing and self producing his next EP.
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
