Eli Fox — Tall Tales (May 17, 2017)

                          Eli Fox — Tall Tales (May 17, 2017) Eli Fox — Tall Tales (May 17, 2017)■••■    Born in Knoxville, Tennessee, Eli began his deep interest in music at the age of 12 when he was introduced to artists like Alison Krauss, Old Crow Medicine Show and John Prine by his older brother. At this time Eli began playing the banjo and became deeply interested in music and roots music in particular. He became extremely interested in artists like these and in particularly Woody Guthrie, while always exploring new music. He was aware of WDVX but only to an extent. He became involved with WDVX in 8th grade when completing a service project for his middle school. Eli chose to host a benefit concert at his school to benefit WDVX and ended up raising over 500 dollars. After that he wanted only to become more involved with the station and began volunteering there on a weekly basis. Since then, Eli has been volunteering for the last 3 years and has recently started filling in as a DJ. Eli hopes to continue his involvement with his favorite station WDVX as long as the world will allow him.

Review
BY LEE ZIMMERMAN, JUNE 14, 2017
Tall Tales Provides Eli Fox With A Big Debut
••    Throughout musical history, those of a tender age have often shown a prolific prowess that outpaces their level of growth and maturity. The examples are evident — Michael Jackson, Tanya Tucker, Sarah Jarosz, Stevie Wonder and Sara and Sean Watkins are among the more obvious examples of musicians who made their mark early on, at an age where many of us are just learning how to tie our shoelaces. East Tennessee’s Eli Fox is the latest artist to show that remarkable proficiency; at age 18, he’s setting his sites on college and, equally importantly, boasting his full length musical debut, the ironically dubbed Tall Tales. The follow up to an initial EP that came out last year, it finds Fox taking his cue from traditional Americana and, most strikingly, the wit and rapport of early Bob Dylan. That’s particularly true of a song like “Hillbilly” where he states his case and shares his rural roots. The easy amble of “Fine Toothed Comb,“ the aw~shucks sentiment of “Tell Me Why” and the rapid fire delivery that accompanies “What Can I Do” more than affirm his down home demeanor, a dry yet demonstrative sound underscored by his rural regimen and an unassuming singing style that sounds as if it just rolled out of the far hills of Appalachia. He shares an obvious admiration for Woody Guthrie, but his instrumental ability — he plays guitar, banjo, fiddle, piano and harmonica with equal ease — only enhances his reverence for the roots. Indeed, really has a rookie been so quick to establish his credence and creativity. ••     http://nodepression.com/
