About Sannie Fox

BIO: Sannie Fox is a guitarist, songwriter and vocalist based in Cape Town, South Africa. Through her music she has been described as "achieving greatness reserved for the artists of a bygone era…” – Texx and the City Sannie Fox performs under her own name in a rock/blues/eclectic three-piece. She has released her 13 track debut album entitled Serpente Masjien in 2015 through record label Just Music (Nakhane Toure, Moonchild, Bye Beneco). Serpente Masjien was selected to be featured on the "new artist" page for iTunes UK as well as US upon release. The album displays a torrent of axe-wielding instrumentation and massive vocals powered by solid drum and bass. “There are few great blues-rock bands in the world today, never mind any worth their salt that happen to be female fronted. That was until Sannie Fox dropped her debut solo album 'Serpente Masjien' – MB LIFE Sannie Fox’s music crosses an eclectic mix of artists and genres ranging from Screaming Jay Hawkins, to Led Zeppelin, Etta James, Patti Smith, John Lee Hooker, 70’s rock, fado, gospel, folk and desert blues. She has collaborated and worked with a wide variety of musicians ranging from Albert Frost to Derek Gripper, Madala Kunene, Busi Mhlongo, Bokani Dyer, The Brother Moves On, Mix n Blend and Theo Crous and has played many stages such as Colombo Jazz and Blues Festival (Sri Lanka), Irish Village (Dubai), Oppikoppi Festival (Limpopo), Rocking the Daisies (CPT), Up the Creek Music Festival (CPT), Cape Town World Music Festival, Cape Town Folk & Acoustic Music Festival, Kirstenbosch Summer Series (CPT), Tooting Tram Festival (UK), Cock & Bull Festival (UK), Splashy Fen (KZN). White Mountain Festival (KZN). Originally born in London and moving to South Africa at the age of ten Sannie Fox developed a talent for writing and playing music from a young age. By her early teens she played piano and was singing in recording studios and performing regularly. It was not long before a number of her songs and compositions had been featured in South African film, television and radio. A sound engineer as well as actress with an Honors degree in Theatre & Performance from UCT, in her first year of studies she formed her first band, a folk/ blues three-piece called Black Betty which later expanded into the 5-piece eclectic rock/blues fusion Mama Know Nothing. In 2010 Sannie Fox formed and composed for three-piece rock outfit machineri with guitarist Geldenhuys and went on to release a critically acclaimed album through Just Music mastered by Brian Lucey (The Black Keys) with all artwork conceived by the legendary graphic artistStorm Thorgerson (Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin) and with popular hits “Big Bad Machine”, “Machine I Am” and “The Searchers”. “I was exposed to a lot of blues, gospel and jazz in my ears from a young age. I began to play piano as a small girl and then I switched to guitar. My mother is Portuguese and my father is South African, I grew up in London and Cape Town. I love culture and stories, this all adds to influence. All the experiences I have had in my life add to the mix. I love anarchy. I love literature and I love the way music feels when you hear it, how it feels to write and play it.” Sannie Fox in The Lake Magazine. What's Next? After a tour to UK in 2014 Sannie Fox returned to SA to finish work on her debut album which she released in 2015. This year following the SA summer festival circuit she went on tour to Sri Lanka and Dubai as a featured act on the US Crossroads Tour which included Tennessean Piedmont blues picker Michael Roach (US) and previous Ike and Tina Turner band member and songwriter Jimmy Thomas (US). She is currently writing new material for release. Artist and Album Reviews “…this album is an absolute powerhouse…her vocals [are] equally matched by her virtuosity on the guitar – a fairly rare find… The vocals and strings are clearly created in tandem and they weave and wander together beautifully...the album is crisp, polished and perfectly executed.” -Whatson magazine onSerpente Masjien "...each track stands out with singular purpose like the gadgets on a Swiss Army knife..." Texx and the City onSerpente Masjien “There are few great blues-rock bands in the world today, never mind any worth their salt that happen to be female fronted. That was until Sannie Fox dropped her debut solo album 'Serpente Masjien'. Freshly pressed and uploaded to the World Wide Web, the one-time Machineri lead singer, songwriter and vocalist's solo step-out has brought 13 tracks on CD plus three bonus cuts in the iTunes store and is guaranteed to shift perception.” - MB LIfe “...guitarist and singer-songwriter Sannie Fox’s performance had me hypnotised from the first note. Her slow, stripped-down blues and ethereal voice strike a deep, resonant chord.” — Mail & Guardian “Deep, bluesy, real, potent rock and roll for your soul and your ear-holes.” — Mahala “Fox’s voice is soulful, deep and grips the blues by its horns. Her ‘analogue-ish’, old vinyl sound can be compared to the likes of Etta James and Ella Fitzgerald” — Tonight Music, Argus "...Sannie Fox has strayed off the beaten path and achieved greatness reserved for the artists of a bygone era...." - Texx and the City “Sannie Fox embodies all that is Venus, as she echoes all the classical themes of beauty, sexuality and love but with avant-garde edge [...] She commands attention as she confronts the gaze, guitar in hand […] reinforced by powerful drums and bass.” — SA Music Scene Sannie Fox can be described as “belting out the blues like she was born in a Louisiana swamp.” – The New Age “…singling out highlights on an album this consistently great seems redundant…” — Rolling Stone on machineri's album www.sanniefox.com
