What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? is making music that feels naked and personal, yet cinematic and epic in scope.
The Boston/NYC band blends baroque pop with soul noir, conjuring up something like the dark-tinged
drama of Florence + The Machine with roots in Aretha Franklin and the songcraft of The Decemberists.
The first thing that audiences connect with is lead-singer, 3rian King’s gender-defying voice, which
“can simmer in blues, tremble with high drama, and faint into a yawning croon” according to Michael
Brodeur of the Boston Phoenix.
The band’s lush instrumentation sets the scene for each musical tale. Violinist and trumpeter, Nathan
Cohen seamlessly sways from romantic classical melodies to southern fiddle or Klezmer, depending on
what the song dictates. Mike Leggio transitions from thunderous rumbling on the upright bass to lilting
jazz, or grabs his bow for even deeper tones. The five female background singers, affectionately called
The Furies, add a haunting choral effect somewhere in the territory of Rolling Stones’ “Let It Bleed.”
Drummer, Nate Greenslit keeps his inventive pulse on the lyrics as well as the groove, while Lori Perkin’s
whirring Hammond organ and Leslie speaker is the honey that glues the sound together.
What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? sells out legendary clubs like Club Passim (Cambridge, MA) and The Duplex
(NYC), recently earning the Critic's Pick in Time Out NYC. Their original song "Cold Rain" was covered by
New Orleans Soul Queen, Irma Thomas on her 2008 Grammy-nominated CD "Simply Grand," earning the
track high praise from Rolling Stone, The Village Voice, and USA Today. What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? hosted
their own sold-out CD release party for “Little Bit Of Blue” at Oberon in Cambridge, MA and Dixon Place
