The Life and Times of Satchel Tomain is a mockumentary about an eclectic musician who has a bit of success then disappears. Satch leves behind a trunkful of music and memories—and a mystery as to his whereabouts. The film short is currently making the rounds of the film festivals.
Neal Fox is a songwriter with a social conscience and a wicked sense of humor. Music Connection called his 2008 release, Now It’s Personal, “edgy and alternative,” saying he can “conjure virtually any style of recording in the pop music realm.”
As a veteran in the music business, Fox was signed to Polydor, RCA and Columbia Records with a charted single and Top Ten Dance Club Hit. He co-scored two Killer Tomato movies, composed and produced music for hundreds of commercials, and for all the major networks—from CBS to VH-1.
In the 90s, Fox co-created a series of multicultural children’s books with his wife, Naomi. He illustrated them and scored the tapes/CDs, narrated by actor Robert Guillaume. This was the inspiration for HBO’s series: Happy Ever After, Fairy Tales for Every Child.
After that he wrote and performed a multimedia one-man show, Pigeonholes, at the world famous Stella Adler Theatre, in Hollywood.
Since then he’s self-released eight CDs, created several music videos (www.YouTube.com/NealF), won two film festival awards for F**k the Fed, (explicit and censored versions) and just previewed his first short film, The Life and Times of Satchel Tomain.
While continuing to write and record music, Fox is now a partner in the multimedia collaboration called Exposed the Art Project, with two painters and two photographers. His contribution to Exposed will be in music, art and film.
