With an extensive background in gospel and a lifelong passion for soul music, Tampa native Betty Fox has come a long way from her southern roots to headlining festivals and captivating thousands with her raw swagger and unwavering talent. As the 2015 representative of the Suncoast Blues Society, an International Blues Challenge Finalist, and 4 time winner of Creative Loafing’s Best of the Bay, she is truly proving herself a force to be reckoned with.
To support her talent, she has carefully selected musical heavyweights Josh Nelms on Lead Guitar, Barry Williams on Bass, and Tony Cintron on drums to set herself up for nothing less than well deserved success. In fact, in the past few years this dynamic quartet has skyrocketed to the Florida spotlight, playing for multiple notable music festivals including the world renowned Tampa Bay Blues Festival, and the largest free music festival in the US: Springing the Blues.
Her debut album, “Too Far Gone,” put her on the international map as a songwriter and vocalist and had the critics from American Blues Scene Magazine to Blues Revue Magazine singing her praises! Her Sophomore album, “Slow Burn” was released in June 2015, receiving rave reviews from Blues DJ’s, critics, and enthusiasts around the world! As many will tell you, you definitely don’t want to miss this one of a kind musical experience.
