This is a really big undertaking for me. I’ve been working on this project for the last year and a half or so, and it encompasses so much growth in my life both personal and professional. I’ve had some very life changing things happening over the course of the last several years, and it’s rewired how I do just about everything, including how I make music, and the motivations for same.

The art I create in music has become so much more important, and much more personal, which I thought could not be accomplished. I’ve been able to connect with my instrument in ways I only dreamt about as a younger man, but it has become yet again in my life my best friend, my lover, my companion, my confidant, and so much more as I transform these life experiences into music. I attribute much of this to the paradigm shift of purpose.

I’ve been a Professional Musician for the greater part of my life, always supporting myself with it in one way or another. I’m still heavily involved in my studio and in Production to make a living, but I’ve been able to separate myself from the commercial and embrace the pure art. I’ve not been able to do that in many years, but the experiences in my life over the last few years that have helped me to grow, have somehow organized those two purposes and set them on their own individual paths.

For lack of any better term, I’ve had an Awakening that has allowed me to finally take that last step of immersion and just simply release all of myself into the music, without thought of who will hear it, whether or not they will like it, or what anyone will say about it.

I don’t care about criticism or haters. It has allowed me to completely release myself into the process, and not be burdened by release dates, label expectations, endorsing companies use of their gear, or any other limiting factors that keep pure, true art from being created with no other goal but to create.

It is a fantastic position to be in, and I’m discovering the most eclectic and lush sides of my musical inspirations, without thought of genre or format of any kind.

It is a truly freeing experience, and I can’t wait to share it with all of you. In this spirit, I present some snapshots of what this is evolving into, and I thank all of you in advance for taking the time to gain a better understanding of where I am in the process, and how the art of my musical life is developing at this point in my life.



“Music is a transformative experience. We experience these moments, from one to the next, constantly connected throughout our lives. Being able to express these things that have happened to us, for some, is the best kind of therapy that can be had. I strive to completely open myself to the piece, and not limit myself by what I think someone will like.”

The End and The Beginning

Adam Christopher Fox

Recorded in 1998 with no Budget, before the widespread advent of Protools. I had the rare opportunity to immerse myself for a short period of time in music. I was able to piece meal together bits and pieces of gear I had, recording in the converted dining room of my apartment in San Diego all hours of the day and night. I took what things had been happening in my life for the last several years, such as the death of my Father, and worked just to process all those thoughts and feelings to a musical canvas. Anger, frustration, loss, and also a new sense of freedom and fear of the unknown after having set out on my own as a Solo Artist. Full of mistakes and happenstance, still one my fondest musical memories to look back on.

Songs in the Key of 7

Adam Christopher Fox

Released in 2000, This time out, there were some slightly more sophisticated tools at work. Still no Pro Tools. Using the Sony Recording and Creation Software suite and an old Windows machine, I locked myself away in my Father’s studio in the family home. I had a great view of the canyon we’d lived on, and plenty of quiet. This Album has some guest appearances on it as well, most notably from a very good friend of mine, Rick LaFave of many different notable recording and touring bands, supplying the keys on “Chug”. I had a blast making this record, but soon the time ran out and I needed to go back to the real world. I’ve been working on remixing this full album, with newer and more sophisticated tools that I now have, such as Logix Pro X, and upsampling all the tracks to 24 bit, and so far they’ve been turning out how I originally wished they’d sound. The two tracks here being shared, “Chug” and “My Prayer” are the result of that Remixing undertaking.

When All Else Failed

Adam Christopher Fox

In 2002, I moved from San Diego to Grants Pass, Oregon. I bought a great house in the Country, on some land, and with plenty of room on the second floor for a large studio remodel. The house was huge, and had plenty of space for me to setup a large rehearsal and recording facility, complete with multiple isolation booths, a nice big sound room, and a good sized control room that had a nice window that faced to the west so I could take advantage of the beautiful view of the mountains to the West. I chose that place specifically because of that space upstairs, and the quiet setting in the Country it afforded me to make as much noise as I wanted without bothering anyone or having to be sensitive to times of day or night. I wanted to make it a new Woodstock house, and have all my friends in the business come visit, stay in the guest house and make music. I began working on new music as soon as I got settled, as these new surroundings really inspired me. The first two tunes I got recorded were the ones I’ve supplied here. “Mothertucker” and “Mist”. I recall having my coffee one morning, looking to the west and seeing the mist crawling it’s way up the mountains, moving around the trees, and finding every nook and cranny to continue its’ journey. It was a magical place. This ended up being an EP, as before I could get finished tracking everything I’d written, I had to go back to the real world, and so began my career in Law Enforcement. I continued to work on music when I could, but time became a rare commodity. I will get back to some of those pieces some of these days, they never really go away, they just morph into other things and the good material finds it’s way to the surface, just like the mist.

Back To Myself

Adam Christopher Fox

Over the years, I’ve made efforts to put together music for another full length album since the release of the EP, “When All Else Failed”. While doing so, life was happening around me, and the pieces I was working on at the time, were good, but I didn’t feel that they really measured up to a full release. I have these sitting in sessions, and perhaps someday I’ll get back to them, as there are many, but sometimes as an artist, you leave stuff in a vault for another day. It takes a while to reach the point where you’ve just shelved the project, because of course the natural inclination is to push forward and work through whatever challenges may have come into play. Once that point is reached though, you look at the material you have and say, “Well that’s a nice piece, but as a whole, the album itself isn’t something I feel is ready to be released.” That’s the case with the collection of pieces for “Back to Myself” it was a necessary process for me to go through, as that’s how I work through life’s challenges by making art in the form of music, but didn’t deem the project as a whole worthy of being released at least at this time. I did however have a few tunes that I really liked from it, and certainly don’t mind sharing with you. These are demos, and as such, are rough, but part of the process, is showing the process. In that spirit I offer these two songs to you. Enjoy.
