Ruby Rose Fox - American Daddy

Boston-based singer/songwriter and theater actress Ruby Rose Fox has just released her new single called "American Daddy", a cinematic and soulful experimental pop masterpiece which will appear on her forthcoming sophomore album Salt, due out on June 22nd. Fox's 2016 debut album Domestic hit number 8 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, and in 2017, she was awarded two consecutive grants from The Boston Foundation. Fox also founded The Gifted Voice Program, a program that offers children voice lessons who could not otherwise afford them.

Speaking on the track, Fox explains:

"The song came from watching the political nightmare unfold in 2017 and struggling with my relationship to patriarchy and its constant disappointments. That said, I think the song is about continuing a hopeful climb. This new political landscape feels surreal, digital, and impersonal. I wanted it to feel like it was shaking inside your body. That it is personal and real. I think if we if felt more in our actual bodies we would be better citizens and probably better lovers."

To celebrate the release of Salt, Fox will be performing a multi-media one-woman musical based on the new record at OBERON in Boston on June 22nd. Tickets for the performance can still be found here.
