In this their second music album the Blue Fox Knights have stretched their songwriting, & musical production, capabilities even further than before.
The album is entitled simply “Blue Fox Knights II” but within this the diversity of the songs stretches from the almost childlike ‘nursery rhyme’ folk melodic quality of the song “One with All”, through the searching ‘Phoenix country’ lyrical American desert searching vocals set in Ancient “Babylonian Baby”, to even further and beyond that stretching to the passion of the truly rockin’ upfront “Stranger” with its unashamedly loud guitar/keyboard power chords & haunting lyrics.
All this from Blue Fox Knights, and this time they enlisted the amazing drumming talents of Emily Dolan Davies to give the hard rock ‘awesome edge’ to the two major rock songs on the album (which are “Stranger” & “Echoing Tears of Laughter”), Blue Fox Knights so love what Emily did on these songs.
Then listen to the almost ‘Bowie-esque’ vocal melody on the chorus of “Fascination” & realise the true breadth of Blue Fox Knights, enjoy!
Dave Albiston (vocal/guitar) and Philip Condie (vocal/percussion/drums/keyboard/bass guitar) are the Blue Fox Knights.
They were brought together, in the beginning, from a mutual interest in metaphysical spirituality which led them to performing music & eventually a mutual interest in songwriting.
Their songs are not written to a specific formula, each song is uniquely distinctive & able to cover a diverse range of subjects including love, mystery, philosophy, spirituality & all things between.
Dave and Philip have sung and played extensively and regularly in various bands throughout Scotland for over 25 years, but mostly within/around Edinburgh, in the Ceilidh/Folk/Wedding/ Pop/Rock tradition but Philip has also featured in the Jazz/Swing worlds.
