Celebrating the release of her debut LP, Alive, Charlie Fox brought soul and sass to Syntax Physic Opera in Denver, Colo. on April 14th. The intimate venue, lending its antiquated chic feel, set the mood for the evening along with Elizabeth Rose and The Soldier of Love, who opened and covered songs by the English band Sade.
Charlie Fox is a soul singer and songwriter based out of Denver, Colo. Inspired by the music of the Motown era and soul singers of the past, the Charlie Fox band captures a retro sound using the Rhodes piano, Wurlitzer keyboard, and Hammond B-3 organ and merges it with a contemporary style and modern lyrics. A true songwriter at heart, her words reveal the story of her personal life and address life issues to which most people can relate.
Alive is comprised of twelve original songs showcasing sounds of soul, funk, jazz, R&B, gospel, pop and even a little country. The LP was self-produced by Charlie Fox and Kyle Jones.
Syntax Physic Opera was already buzzing before the show began and the lineup proved to be solid from the start; two bands with two leading ladies. It was an evening of girl power with some incredible musicianship to support. Playing to a full house, Charlie Fox dazzled with her soulful vocals, honest lyrics, and musical grooves. Engaging the audience, as people were out of their seats dancing, the energy was kept high through the end of the show. The encore of Etta James’ “I’d Rather Go Blind” and Amy Winehouse’s “Stronger Than Me” was a perfect ending to the night.
