Foxfeather at The Sandbox
The Sandbox is a music venue unlike any other in Kalamazoo. Think of that feeling you get attending a house show, and now add studio quality visual and sound experience inside a historic warehouse. The Sandbox is a listening room and partner in the supportive arts community of Kalamazoo, MI.
Beginning with a lyrical base, and bolstered by strong blues-rock instrumentals, Foxfeathers unique sound captivates their audience. The band consists of Carly Ricks Smith (lead vocals), Laura Paige Stratton (acoustic/electric guitars, keys, vocals), and is often supported by various instrumentalists.
Foxfeather is a local staple in the Colorado Front Range, and also tours nationally. 2018 saw the release of three new singles by Foxfeather and music periodical, JAMMERZINE, credited the group for [achieving] sonic bliss via their new track titled Come and Get Me. The band released their EP, Foul Moon, in 2014. In response to this release The Marquee stated that the group is overflowing with talent and Carly Ricks Smith has a spectacular voice which lies somewhere between the folky soprano of a young Joni Mitchell and the jazz-heavy range of Lake Street Dives Rachel Price. Its powerful as well as delicate. Andy Eppler of The Prairie Scholars said its sexy. Its original. These women have crafted something very special and instantly likeable on this album.
The band released their first full length, self titled album in October of 2016, which Rooster magazine described as "time warping...it's an emotional ride into the forest of folk with low-hanging country branches slapping you in the face without apology... its got a good thing going" (Rooster Magazine).
