The Meldavians

Dave Fox is a musician, educator, and author who resides in Greensboro, North Carolina. He has produced multiple albums in the jazz and avant styles (Home Again, If These songs Could Talk, Gatewalk, The Foxbourne Chronicles, to name a few) and is well known as an improviser and pianist who presents music in diverse creative ways. Reviews of his music have appeared in many major jazz journals. He was reviewed by JazzImprov NY for their July, 2007 issue.

His album, Farewell Arigemon, with The Meldavians (2011) was conceived as an outlet for songwriting and arranging in a rock/pop/groove style. The Meldavians was produced with John Plymale at Overdub Lane and features Melissa Reaves, Scott Sawyer, Dave Fox, and many other sidemen, including Joey Barnes, Damon Brown, Dan Davis, and Marchus Horth.

Fox teaches music full-time at Greensboro College. He has three music degrees, including a doctorate in music education from Teachers College, Columbia University. He keeps an active schedule as a solo pianist, and as leader of three different groups: The Dave Fox Group (jazz), The Meldavians (rock), and The Draves (progressive rock/pop). He and his wife, Molly, live in Pleasant Garden, North Carolina, with three dogs, two cats, and the memory of a great little fish.
