Red hot, piano-driven, toe-tapping “rock ‘n soul” sextet Foxy Shazam has signed to Sire Records. The Cincinnati, OH band is putting the finishing touches on their debut for the label, due out in early 2010.
Citing influences as varied as Marvin Gaye, Elton John and “Born To Run”-era Bruce Springsteen, Foxy Shazam has been creating unique, genre-defying music since they formed in 2004. Their new album uses a blend of passion, danger, and an aggressive pop spark to ignite their songs and take Foxy to the next level. “We wanted to go places where nobody goes,” explains front man Eric Nally. “We weren’t afraid to take risks with this record, because as long as you take them with confidence it will work out. Nothing is cool until it’s made cool.”
