28 Days (2006)

RPM 2006. What in the name of all that's good and right have I got myself into? A lesson in how to slap something together in 28 Days. (with a wrecked voice due to illness to keep it all interesting)

Aftermath Hotel (2007)

A collection of ditties about some odd characters wandering the lobby of an old hotel.

Pretty Voices (2008)

Fun, excitement, excitement and fun.

Dearly Departed (2009)

Originally intended as a longer, more experimental album... Time crunches, creative blocks and a 48 hour marathon recording session at the end have produced Dearly Departed, my fourth RPM album.

Summer Grass (2010)

My most over-indulgent work to date. Find some good speakers or headphones, turn it up and while you are listening, try to find the track where the power went out for 3 1/2 days.

Sunday Morning Music (2011)

If it's March, it must be the end of RPM. Ladies and Gentlemen, we proudly bring you Sunday Morning Music, the most subversive album ever. This record is brought to you by Gary Fox, via 3am Productions. Cheers all, Gary

Freedom (2012)

Is it 2012 already? This album is driven by current events and personal beliefs.

Sweet Peppermint (2013)

Look, I made my version of a dance record.

Lonely Diamond (2014)

This album is more like two shorter records; a mini double album. The first eight songs are more of a rock show, the last six more acoustic guitar focused.

No One Number (2015)

The album that wouldn't be. 2015 was the most unprepared I may have ever been. Most of February was spent in search of some inspiration and unifying theme. I spent a lot of time recording demos of riffs and ideas that I was in love with earlier, ie, since RPM 2014. But nothing seemed good enough. Then, after some chance events, it all clicked. So, this album is mainly the product of about 10 days of focus. The title is thanks to my good friend and fellow RPMer Andy Samford, assisted by Matt Ferrara. Andy picked up on something I said and told me "That's the title". He was right. So, thank you, Andy and Matt.

Sonder (2016)

This one goes to 11. This is RPM album #11 for me. I take each year as it comes to me; this year was about themes and (hopefully) catchy songs. Sonder is a real fake word, so perhaps this is a real fake record. It's about everyone, no one, and only one simultaneously. You can read more about it here: http://www.rpmchallenge.com/index.php?option=com_lyftenbloggie&view=entry&year=2016&month=03&day=03&id=8891:sonder&Itemid=323

Vinyl (2017)

The album that might not have occurred. But it did, and here it is for you to listen to. I don't have much to say about this, other than listen, loud, and on big speakers, with the lights off.

BIOGRAPHY

2017 marks my 12th RPM album.

http://alonetone.com/garyfox8
(RPM albums and other songs through the years)

Solo artist.

“Gary Fox is some lonewolf thats got a sweet basement studio. Someone that majored in microscopic vinyl inspection. He wrote his thesis on Big Star and Sweet.” From What Doth Life Records… What is it? Well, it's guitar laden with lots of harmonies and hopefully some cool "ear candy" type things. I love experimenting in the studio, but at the end of the day I am just trying to write a song you will catch yourself singing along to.
