North Carolina-native Solomon Fox is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer whose recordings combine delicate vocal harmonies, soulfully understated production, and intimate, off-kilter lyrics. In 2019, he broke through as a producer, working with fellow songwriters Joshuah Campbell and Cynthia Erivo to create the Gospel-infused anthem “Stand Up” for the film Harriet, which would go on to earn Grammy, Oscar, and Golden Globe nominations for Best Original Song. Previously, Fox attended Harvard University where he studied Religion and Music under the mentorship of Cornel West, Vijay Iyer, and Esperanza Spalding among other esteemed faculty members.
Fox first began writing songs at age 9 on his parent’s upright piano, recording them into GarageBand alongside his older brother Elijah Fox. Throughout his teenage years, Fox developed both as a writer and music producer, recording demos and selling CDs at school. At Durham School of the Arts, Fox started a hip-hop/soul-collective called Young Bull with his classmate Tahmique Cameron, releasing projects that have gone on to amass millions of streams on Spotify and YouTube, touring across the country while opening for the likes of Erykah Badu, Masego, Big Freedia, and more. In 2018, Fox released his first solo single “Rockaways” which was placed on Spotify’s “Fresh Finds” playlist and set the stage for his follow-up release, “Unusual.” His eponymous project, Solomon, was released in March 2021, heralding critical acclaim including a nod in NPR’s “Best Music of March” from All Songs Considered.
