Although Max Foxx and Nicky Renard both hail from Sweden, their guitar-driven self-described “heavy soft-rock”) is sure to appeal to indie music fans across the United States. Foxx and Renard have both spent their lives playing music and refining their skills as performers; today we are treated to their debut single Grovy Lane and fans are already anxiously looking forward to the release of the duo’s first album.
Introducing Foxx and Renard
Foxx grew up immersed in music and began learning piano at age 7. Even from this early age he found that following the book did not interest him so he struck out to develop his own sound. This renegade spirit is part of what distinguishes the duo’s auditory appeal; they both strive to authentically share their genuine musical tastes and have a steadfast refusal to cater to the latest tropes in popular music. The result of this commitment to authenticity is a lush, appealing soundscape that instantly catches the ear.
This genuine spirit also characterizes Nicky Renard’s approach to music. Another lifelong music lover, she began playing guitar at 13; today she plays 6- and 12-string electric guitars for the tracks she and musical partner Foxx record together. While in Nashville recording she spends time hunting for the perfect instrument to capture her desired sound; rumor has it she loves vintage models from Fender and Les Paul.
