    This is basically a Youtube band. They don't tour. There is some history - the front man and his band mates have been together for some years. In the last two songs, the tall blonde is his daughter. The other 'fox' was the daughter's school mate. Most of the F&F songs were recorded at a Taco place - traffic in the background... Lord.

    I love that type of music - great harmony. And good backup - they are well seasoned. Why'll you're watching America devolve into oblivion (for now), kick back and listen to these songs.

    I'm not sure who the lead singer is on this take. But this is a 'Mustangs' recording. I do recognize the band members. Steve Winwood - can't go wrong.

    Here's a great old song... Blues? I can never tell. Don't give up on it - they get into it and the girl can really sing blues. The lead singer is relatively new - one of the girls went to college and appears less often now it seems.

    I think this is my favorite- there are so many...

    Yes I'm a fan of Foxes and Fossils! Viewed just about everything they've posted on Utube. Catch their performance of "Suite Judy Blue Eyes." They do it as well as the original!

    Found out about them a year or so ago. Big fan. And agree with your Judy Blue Eyes comment. They do a great job on that song. Harmonies and high notes all done well.

    Agreed. They do CSN&Y justice...

    Yes I like them.
    It came on a recommendation video since I like to watch people cover old tunes.

    I like these kids.....the guitar player can totally shred and that drummer girl is great.

    Foxes and Fossils are fun to listen to. They have achieved a certain level of quality on everything they do. It's amazing, considering none of them are what you'd call 'professionals.'

    Ah! Look what I found today! A month or so ago they were looking for input for song titles. I mentioned the Beach Boy's "Don't Worry Baby" and voila! I don't think I had any input to the choice of music. LOL I think they were surely done recording and Tim was arranging and dubbing already.

    This is a great song. Carl Wilson did a great live version of it. And Lorrie Morgan teamed with the Beach Boys for another great version. But this is really good, to my ear, too.

    You guys ever listen to the Fendertones cover Beach Boy songs?

    Maggie Adams, Chase Truran and Sammi Purcell are the Foxes. Maggie and Chase sometimes drift away for school and a life, but they return to participate. In all, it's a family style group and the male members must also travel to get back with the group.

    The girls all sing beautifully but keep an eye on Chase. She has an incredible voice!

    I think that they could go places if they were geographically centered together. They really deserve great success. Their performances are top notch!
