King Of Foxes
KING OF FOXES
Rock Artist of the Year Nominee, Western Canadian Music Awards 2022
When you turn on a King of Foxes tune, it's a safe bet that the skies will open and alien aircraft will appear, the ark of the covenant will descend before ye, and all of your childhood pets will arise from the dead. Also, you'll probably hear an indie alternative artist whose undeniably catchy tunes earned her a Rock Artist of the Year nomination at the 2022 Western Canadian Music Awards. Fronted by singer-songwriter Olivia Street, King of Foxes has released three critically acclaimed albums. Her third full-length album, Twilight of the Empire, was released in September 2022 and quickly rose to #1 on the CKUA charts. Recorded over the course of the pandemic, in a basement with beige shag carpet on the walls and a Wurlitzer in the closet, Twilight of the Empire represents a clear evolution in her incisive creativity. Street’s music has been described as being full of “purpose and understanding.” It’s a thread she continues to weave into her latest work. Career achievements include a nomination for Best Music Video at the 2022 Alberta Film and Television Awards (AMPIA’s Rosie Awards) for “Only Here on Loan” and an official screening at the Edmonton Short Film Festival; Salt & Honey earned the #42 spot on CKUA's Top 100 albums of 2019; an Artist to Watch nomination at the 2018 Edmonton Music Awards; Top 3 placement in the Bent River Records recording competition (2019); two music videos among “Canada’s Top 100 Independent Music Videos of the Year” (Dropout Entertainment, 2019); and consistent radio play on college, community, and satellite stations. Salt & Honey spent 29 weeks on the Earshot! charts and was the #22 Most Added at NACC in the first week of its US release and went on to chart on 14 stations across the US.
