“Not only does The Jane Legacy Fund help artists realize their artistic goals, the organization also fosters and enriches the arts community in New Brunswick because it understands and supports that artists often hire other artists to complete projects. This is my second opportunity granted by the Fund, and I am using the bursary to collaborate with film artists to create high-quality live music content. My previous opportunity as a mentor through the JL Music Studio Mentee Program enabled me to mentor another songwriter, and we both learned so much from each other through that program. The love and care for this region’s artists by Cat and Maureen LeBlanc is exceptional and important.”
Kylie Fox is a Canadian singer-songwriter fusing indie-folk storytelling with vintage jazz and alternative rock elements. Her perceptive lyrics and undeniably catchy melodies are illustrated by a classically trained voice, warm and textured with a laid-back richness. With influences like Joni Mitchell, Brandi Carlile, and Sharon Van Etten, her music is ethereal, lush, and authentic.
Currently based in Fredericton, NB, Fox exudes fun and love for her art and storytelling, which is evident on “Confetti” (April 2023), the lead single from her second studio album. “It’s a bright and brooding alternative rock ballad, which speaks to the nostalgia of novelty,” explains Fox. “I was thinking about how the newness of romance can fall and simply be swept away -- like confetti.” This track and the album Sequoia (release date TBC) are produced by Daniel Ledwell (Jenn Grant, The Good Lovelies, Fortunate Ones).
Fox’s debut album, Green (2020), led her to tour Canada extensively, sharing stages alongside names like Bahamas, The Strumbellas, and Joel Plaskett, along with showcasing at the East Coast Music Awards (2021), Folk Alliance International (2021) and the Canadian Song Conference (2021). She participated in the Banff Centre for the Arts International Songwriting Residency (2020) and the SOCAN Equity X Music Production Program (2023).
Fox is also a music educator, freelance composer, songwriting instructor, and voice teacher.
