INTERVIEW: Foxfeather

Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

Awesome, thank you. It’s already starting to feel like summer in Colorado.

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “No More”?

We pull from our lives and experiences for all of our songs, but the story always changes within the writing process. You could say that ‘No More’ is lightly based on factual events and feelings, but adapted and developed in order to tell a succinct and relatable story.

Tell us about the video?

We are very excited to be releasing our lyric video for ‘No More.’ The footage was shot while driving to the town of Creede in southwestern Colorado on our last tour. We were all in ‘Barb the  Van’, our 1988 Chevy G20 – not going as fast as it looks, lol! A lot of people say they get dizzy watching the clip, which works, because riding around for weeks with your bandmates is definitely dizzying.

How was the recording and writing process?

We love to write and record. ‘No More’ was written by myself, Carly Ricks Smith, and Laura Paige Stratton while we were camping near the St. Vrain river in Lyons, CO. We had just seen Kasey Chambers perform and were feeling very inspired. We wanted to create a song with a driving rhythm and a powerful chorus. It was one of the rare songs that just sort of appear out of thin air, that almost write themselves.

Recording was a blast. We worked with a great producer, Jagoda, and sound engineer, Jay Elliott at IntroVertigo Recording in Boulder, CO. We were feeling very close and very comfortable in the space. Everyone was open, excited, and really invested in the project.

What role does Boulder plays in your music?

Boulder is where we all met and where our friendships have grown. All five of us have been involved in the music scene here for around a decade. We shaped this band, our sound, and our goals based on our experiences in other projects we have been involved in in Boulder.

Does the single mean we can expect more new material – how’s that coming along?

“No More” is a track from our debut album, Foxfeather, out now!  We also have three new songs written – we are already playing one called “Lunatic”, which we’re now testing out in our live shows. We plan to get back in the studio later this year.

Any plans to hit the road?

We just returned from a tour through Colorado and New Mexico. We played seven shows, and appeared on Dry River Blues, Trevor Hodgkin’s radio show on  KRWG in Las Cruces, NM. We love being on the road playing and meeting new fans. We will be heading through Colorado again June 21st-24th, stopping in Aspen, Vail, Frisco and Grand Junction.  Check out our website + socials for more!

What else is happening next in Foxfeather’s world?

We host a weekly open mic night in Boulder, and really love connecting with other artists. We also just played the Rocky Mountain Tree Festival, it’s great to support environmental causes. New merch is in the works too! We love all aspects of musicians life- playing, touring, writing, visuals and recording are all so fulfilling and we love working on it together.
