Eli Fox is a Knoxville Tennessee Multi Instrumentalist Folk Singer-Songwriter. He now resides in Nashville Tennessee to further his career. Eli has been playing and writing since he was a teenager. He can play anything! At least 10 instruments. Including but not limited to The Dobro, Banjo, Pedal Steel, Harmonica, Guitar, Piano, Fiddle, Accordion, Drums. He’s a one man band! He can play just about anything and at his shows he about does! Eli has already released 2 albums. His first full length CD is called “ Tall Tales”
Eli is definitely an Old Soul at a young age. His Biggest influence is Woody Guthrie ( This land is your land) Father to Arlo Guthrie ( Alice’s Restaurant).
Eli got to play the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival which was amazing. He has also played the famous Bijou Theater in Knoxville Tn. The Bristol Rhythm and Roots Festival. He has opened up for artist like Darrel Scott. John McCutcheon, and Emily Ann Roberts to name a few.
Eli Fox played an acoustic set at Open Chord All Things Music in Knoxville Tennessee January 2021 . Opening for new artist Allie Colleen.
Eli did a wonderful job opening the show. It was Just Him doing an acoustic set with several of his instruments. Switching back and forth from his Banjo to Guitar and Harmonica.
He did a great job priming and warming up the Audience . Telling a few stories in between songs. He did alot of songs off his 3rd and most recent CD titled “Eli Fox Or Something like That” . Which was released 2019.
A few of my favorite songs from that CD are Waiting Around On You” “ Thinking Too Much ( Its Driving Me Mad)” and “ Honolulu Baby” . such a wonderful tropical song. If you close your eyes you could swear you were at the beach with palm trees swaying in the gentle breeze.
I would say This is by far his best CD to date. I believe he has stated he played almost if not all the instruments on this cd! I think he can go far if he decided to write and perform or just be a songwriter. but I hope he continues to do both.
He is an Excellent Musical Singer/ Songwriter.
