Billy Fox

Composer and bandleader Billy Fox is adept at synthesizing disparate genres. His compositions are distinguished by an organic blending of composed and improvised music, as well as narrative sensibilities deriving from his work as a screenwriter.

In 2010, Clean Feed Records released Billy's newest album “Dulces,” performed by Blackbirds & Bullets. The band features Gary Pickard, Miki Hirose, Matt Parker, Evan Mazunik, James Ilgenfritz, Arei Sekiguchi, and Julianne Carney.
