Ohio quartet Phillip Fox Band will soon be their debut full length album Heartland (produced by Joe Viers) on September 2nd, they have truly carved out their own sound that is best described as ‘Country-Fried Rock N’ Roll’ From the tenacity of “I Ain’t Angry” and “Nothin’ Worse Than Weak” to the down-home feeling of “Heartland”, Phillip Fox Band have crafted an album that is full of hope, loss, love and the truth. In early 2013, the band began pre-production for what would become their debut full length album Heartland.  The band completed the album in January and launched a Kickstarter campaign raising over $18,000 to release the new record.  2014 will see the band playing over 200 dates including headlining slots at Ohio Bike Week and larger festivals such as Buckle Up featuring Alabama, Willy Nelson, Jamey Johnson, Old Crow Medicine Show, Cadillac Three, and more. “Heartland has sort of a double-meaning.  The Motor City Blood EP was about where I came from, my roots in Detroit.  This record is more about where we call home now, and that’s Ohio.  For a long time Ohio’s slogan was ‘The Heart of it All’ and in a small way we wanted to pay tribute to that.  But in a grander sense, I’ve traveled to four continents and there are just places that feel welcoming to certain folks and places that don’t.  I’ve found that if I get too far away from open fields, trees, and a little soil in the air, I start getting antsy, a little claustrophobic. It didn’t matter if it was in Japan, Spain, or New York state. Heartland is about finding places wherever we are that speak to us and feel like home.” For more information, visit www.phillipfoxband.com
