Kevin Fox is a revered multi-instrumentalist, sought-after arranger/composer and in-demand recording artist. He has composed arrangements for the likes of Jim Cuddy and Justin Bieber, recorded with such artists as Celine Dion and Chantal Kreviazuk and performed with artists including Steven Page and Olivia Newton John.
Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Kevin quickly became absorbed with and excelled in the arts. By the time he attended McGill University in Montreal to study composition, Kevin had already written songs for eight years, composed orchestral pieces for four, toured with orchestras and choirs, started a band and performed his own songs and orchestral pieces on local stages.
After university, Kevin moved to Toronto where he picked up an electric guitar for the first time and auditioned to join a band led by MCA recording artist Andrew Cash. Thus began his career as a side musician. With his abilities to play numerous instruments including the cello, acoustic, electric, and bass guitar, as well as sing, Kevin is sought out to collaborate in the studio as well as on stage.
Kevin’s talents in composition have made him a highly respected orchestral arranger. Arranging is a means through which Kevin’s abilities to intertwine his influences and enrich the beauty of a song is evident. It allows him to step beyond the singular voice of his cello and offer the same beauty and intensity with which he plays, through the voice of an ensemble. As a composer/arranger, Kevin has to date composed music for film as well as arrangements for such artists as Damhnait Doyle, Lennie Gallant, Shaye and Dolores O’Riordan of The Cranberries. Through co-writing and the recording of his songs by other artists his work has been featured on American television and received radio airplay across Canada and the United States.
