Vital indie rock and folk from Grand Rapids
”We started out playing sad, indie-folk songs," say the members of Watching for Foxes, who got together as friends in the small town of Fremont, Michigan. "We drew a lot from contemporary folk artists like Mumford and Sons and cats like that. We still love that music, but as our lineup grew and solidified, we were able to included many more of our diverse influences and make a sound that we like to think is all our own. We have elements of roots rock, folk-rock, and indie-rock in our sound, and I think we've created a really cool little niche for ourselves that will serve us well in the future; more importantly, it reflects who we all are, and who inspires us, in a much more complete way.” Watching for Foxes has toured Michigan and the Midwest, and with the release of their full-length debut, "Undone Bird," this is a band of six that's ready for bigger things. Songwriter and Ann Arbor native Katie Pederson opens.
