Winner of two film festival awards! The music video of F**k the Fed recently won Best Music Video at the Delray Beach Film Festival and the Making the Cut award from the Palm Beach International Film Festival. See F**k the Fed on YouTube.
As a veteran of the music business, Neal Fox’s songwriting and production skills always earn high praise. Music Connection ranks him at #4 in their Top 25 New Music Critiques saying Fox has “the ability to conjure virtually any style of recording in the pop music realm.” (His latest CD, “Now It’s Personal,” is currently airing on AAA stations.)
Wanting to make a new music video—and with current events providing lots of raw material—he didn’t have to look hard for subject matter. He decided to take a swipe at the Federal Reserve System.
News about “the Fed” changing interest rates is common, and anticipated with fear or hope. But the Federal Reserve also controls the flow of money by issuing new funds, as in the recent bailout. Yet according to the Constitution, issuing money is one of the Powers of Congress. Congress—not a group of privately owned banks.
Fox wrote this song because, like every one else, he’s “fed” up with the economy and its doom-and-gloom forecast. The uncensored, controversial video, strikes back at those who created this mess and those who benefit from it. But this is no dry commentary. It’s a concise and hilarious dart-throwing statement that hits a bull's-eye. The Rap vocal and infectious rhythm have viewers and listeners chanting "F**k the Fed" along with Fox. If you’re a Ron Paul supporter, a fan of Aaron Russo’s films, or just a disillusioned citizen, this one’s for you.
Neal Fox is a multimedia artist who creates an array of characters with the simple change of a hat. He‘s a chameleon in guy-next-door clothes. He keeps audiences entertained as they never know what to expect—but look forward to it anyway.
Fox’s long list of credits include: being signed to Polydor, RCA and Columbia Records; a charted single and Top Ten Dance Club hit; co-scores for two Killer Tomato movies; composing and producing music for all the major networks, i.e., CBS Evening News with Dan Rather; and Clio and Telly Awards. Brooklyn born and raised, Fox now lives in southern Florida.
