John Foxx

John Foxx

Real Name:
Dennis Leigh
Vocalist, musician, photographer and graphic artist best known as former lead singer for Ultravox (initially written 'Ultravox!'). He left the band in 1979 for a solo career. He withdrew from music in 1985 and concentrated on visual work. In 1990, inspired by acid house, Foxx briefly returned as Nation 12, a collaboration with Tim Simenon of Bomb The Bass (and later with the late Shem McCauley/Streets Ahead). Foxx then fell silent again until 1997, when a chance meeting with Louis Gordon led to a batch of albums by the duo (1997–2008) and a new phase of Foxx's solo career.

John Foxx was a pioneer. First UK artist to record a complete album using synths alone. Sited by many pioneering dance acts as inspiration along with the likes of Kraftwerk. Also one of the best teachers I ever had. And still going strong today! Respect.

John Foxx was the original singer/songwriter in the early '80's art rock band Ultravox. He was replaced by Midge Ure,and embarked on a solo career. The earliest recordings are electronic, cold and robotic and dron-y in a catchy way. The later recordings began to incorporate more organic instrumentation.
