Described by Ralph McTell as “one of England’s best voices”, Bob Fox makes his first recording for Topic, and we’re delighted for him to be here. He is one of the hardest working performers in the country, playing more dates than almost anyone else. His exceptional voice and inspired guitar have a lightness of touch and a sureness of purpose that go straight to the heart of the song, be it traditional or contemporary.

“Bob’s interpretations are nothing short of superb. He’s in great voice, and his arrangements showcase well his often unsung instrumental prowess.” Netrhythms

“This return to acoustic form puts Fox’s gorgeous voice in a setting of Class A songs, which mine the peaks and troughs of the human condition and emerge sparkling with Fox’s sensitive vocal interpretations and adroit tune adaptations. this album exudes class; startling, moving stuff.” BBC Radio2 reviews
