Creative Review New Music
British artist, songwriter and producer FØNX has released his brand new single ‘Can’t Get Enough’, which was produced by Grammy award-winner Tommaso Colliva (Muse).
FØNX explains, “’Can’t Get Enough’ came about whilst I was homeless and sofa surfing for a couple of months and after a very colourful twenty hours, I found myself writing initial ideas for the song”.
Drawing influence from the likes of Kanye West, Childish Gambino, Frank Ocean, D’angelo, John Mayer and Tame Impala, FØNX delivers R’n’B-infused pop with jazz, funk and soul influences, merging catchy grooves, memorable hooks and intricate guitar licks with inspired lyrical content.
Coming from a musical background FØNX started learning guitar at the age of seven and was soon introduced to rap and hip hop, sparking his enthusiasm to start writing lyrics and create backing tracks from samples.
FØNX continued experimenting with music and film during a number of years of homeschooling and soon enrolled at the Brit School where he studied music.
Since leaving, FØNX has continued writing and producing his music at home, on trains, buses, in coffee shops and backstage before shows, constantly coming up with ideas for melodies and lyrics wherever he went. Playing the live circuit around London and the South East he has also performed at various festivals including Barn on The Farm, Cornbury Festival, Isle Of Wight Festival and Leefest.
FØNX is busy working on brand new material and collaborations. ‘Can’t Get Enough’ indeed!
