In November of 2018 the Canadian singer songwriter Andy Shauf and his childhood friends Dallas Bryson (guitar/vocals) and brothers Darryl Kissick (bass) and Avery Kissick (drums & percussion) released Foxwarren, their self-titled debut album that was a decade in the making.
Today they are thrilled to announce their first-ever tour beginning in their hometown of Regina, Saskatchewan on May 29; dates throughout the US and Canada will follow and all performances are listed below. To mark the occasion they have also released their new video for the album track “Sunset Canyon”. Directed by Laura-Lynn Petrick and featuring actor and talk show host Busy Philipps, watch the video HERE.
“Sunset Canyon” is one of my favorite songs from the Foxwarren album and I basically have been making my own music videos to the song since it came out,” said Philipps. “Working with [Director] Laura-Lynn on the video was so amazing. She is such a talent and I loved the easy going vibe of the day, wandering through the canyon with her in my mom’s dress from the sixties.”
Laura-Lynn Petrick also added: “The video was my ethereal gaze on a female seeking serenity in the nature that surrounds her. Inspired by Italian neorealism, Busy & I spent the day exploring the forests of the canyons & enjoying the winter sun reflecting with nature.”
Subtle and thoughtful, Foxwarren draws parallels to Andy Shauf’s solo work while leaning on collaboration and looseness rather than Shauf’s meticulous arrangements. Where Shauf leaves space for orchestration, Foxwarren take time to ruminate on passages and themes. Propped up by warm driving rhythms and a familiar voice, and coloured with soft electronics and coarse guitars, this record ultimately hinges on sincerity. It captures the feeling of friends pushing each other, of a band looking inward for inspiration instead of outward for influence.
