The Daily Krapht – Secret Friend – “Blue Sky”
Steven Fox is the songwriter and recording artist that makes up the musical act, Secret Friend. Beginning his career as a bass player in a popular Seattle-based high school band in the 80’s, Fox grew as a musician when he moved to London and worked as a sound engineer. He took a break from music at one point, but returned to his musical background and put his knowledge of sound engineering to work when he created Secret Friend.
The first track and opening single to Secret Friend’s upcoming album, Sleeper, (due out August 14th) provides listeners with a taste of what’s to come from the rest of the album. Fox has a talent for bringing his creativity together in order to produce a song full of electronica greatness. In the music video for “Blue Sky,” a variety of kaleidoscope images between scenes of animated creatures in their natural habitat, go along well with the various sounds and instruments displayed through this eccentric track. Fox hit the jackpot when he chose the sweet, tender stylings of Kelly Jones to portray the voice behind, “Blue Sky.” Her vocals will assist the listener as they “hitch a ride on a cumulus cloud” full of psychedelic melodies.
Steven Fox has come a long way from his beginnings in that high school band that resembled more of a grunge, rock feel. With Secret Friend, he has proved how much a musician can grow over the years and create something unique and true.
