This Friday we are proud to welcome PHOX to Paradigm to kick off the Third Season of the Étude Sessions. Born out of the circus capital Baraboo, Wisconsin, PHOX dropped their self-titled debut album last summer. Since then their unique sound has filled and sold out such venues as the Pabst Theatre, Coachella Music Festival, and Summerfest. Named the band of the year at the 2015 Wisconsin Area Music Industry Awards, PHOX’s notoriety also led to stints on “CBS This Morning” and TBS late-night’s “Conan” and opening duties for such bands as the Lumineers and Blitzen Trapper.
Bandmates Matt Holmen, Zach Johnston, Jason Krunnfusz, Monica Martin, Davey Roberts and Matteo Roberts produce a mix of smooth melodies with honest lyrics that portray stories of growing up in a small Midwestern town. Songs like “Satyr and the Faun,” “1936,” and “Slow Motion” speak of moving in slow motion through a world full of lost love, deep roots, and new dreams.
We are also very happy to announce that Étude Sessions alumna Brianna Lane will be joining PHOX this Friday. Last year, Brianna Lane and the Navigators gave us a night of beautiful Americana and we are looking forward to her return.
This is going to be a fantastic season. Thank you for your support!
