About Neal Fox

“…a rueful Randy Newman eccentric…equally at home in blues, rock, pop and jazz motifs…
Fox’s lyrics are a solid plus. They often flash with wry wit, an all too infrequent phenomenon on the rock scene.”
—BILLBOARD

“Fox is a veteran tunesmith and jingle/theme composer with the ability to conjure virtually any style of recording in the pop music realm.”
—MUSIC CONNECTION

“A stupendous songwriter.”
—NEW TIMES

Now It’s Personal (CD)

The dramatic, “Kashmire”-ish cadence of “Zero With a Gun” (about a school gunman) is edgy and alternative. Meanwhile, the ultra-melodic ballad, “We’re All Gonna Be There (When She Dies),” showcases a Billy Joel soundalike that is quite uncanny.
—MUSIC CONNECTION

(“We’re All Gonna Be There When She Dies”) Epic piano setting—this guy knows how to write. If there’s any justice in this world we should hear Trisha Yearwood singing this most beautifully constructed song.

“Neal Fox continues to do what he's always done. Tell real stories about real life in musical packages that are pleasing to the ear and as varied as a Godiva sampler. Now It's Personal is a must own album, particularly for fans of singer/songwriters and adult contemporary rock. Don't pass this one by, folks.”
—Wildy’s World

(5 Stars) Neal has such a creative force that shines through his music and his lyrics. He is not afraid to say what needs to be said and does so in such elegant ways. Full of admiration.

The song ["Pray For Rain"] has the near impossible combination of sounding very organic yet polished.
—Indie Music Sampler

“Overall I found this album to be a pleasure to listen to from beginning to end. The 12 tracks on this album all fit together and transitions are smooth... If you are a fan of 60’s 70’s pop/rock or you are looking for music with a focus on social issues, then you should check out Neal Fox’s new album ‘Now Its Personal’.”

The Conspiracy Project (Film/CD)

“ An eye-opening musical documentary on the global conspiracy .”
—Oaxaca FilmFest

“The Conspiracy Project is ground breaking in its information, entertainment value and passion. This man just created the mold, broke it and then made you clap while you watched him do it.”
—Del Weston, Action on Film International Film Festival

“You’re totally awake and it’s a great project to wake other people up.”

—Larry Jaffe, Poet

“A highly original and hard-hitting multimedia tour de force.”

—Mark Schwab, Diamond in the Rough Films

HiPOCRACY (CD)

“A great work with great influences.”
—Wayne Nelson, Little River Band

Very, very hip! Well constructed vocal harmonies and squeaky tight musicianship, this accomplished songwriter has created a "Gem"!
—MP3.com

HiPOCRACY immediately displays his cutting edge as a lyricist while Killer in the Courtroom boasts a wonderfully eerie and sinister feel…”
—Mike Gibb, Masquerade

Fox’s slickly produced Lite AOR Rock mixes social commentary with a furlong of influences. He has listened hard to such older, sensitive rockers as Don Henley and Paul Simon but there is some grizzled Randy Newman in here for the cynics at the bar.
—Nick Dedina, listen.com

Neal Fox’s “HiPOCRACY” opens with an a cappella verse that recalls Manhattan Transfer, then grinds into a rap interlude that builds into a slick Steely Dan-like pop chorus.
—Amazon.com

Hotel del Swell (CD)

"Next Bottle of Wine" absolutely stopped me in my tracks! That storyline is one of the most sublime pieces of imagery I've ever heard set to music.
—Marty Westlin, independent reviewer

Thank You, Dan Rather (One-man Show/CD)

“You get the feeling you are listening to a musical reincarnation of filmmaker Michael Moore – only this time presented by someone with an intelligent, musical endowment in tell-all mode. His musical slaps at the advertising and news-presenting industries are especially funny and revealing…
—Ron Levitt, Theatre Critic, The Huffington Post

“The result is Thank You, Dan Rather, a show that’s part Randy Newman, part an eccentric tentacle of off-Broadway, and mostly a must-see for anyone who’s ever loved (money) and lost (money).”
—Jamie Laughlin, New Times

“…irony-laden compositions of social outrage are tempered by his toe-tapping commercial melodies…Fox is indeed a talented guy with an eclectic songwriting range. No doubt he is a lot of fun at parties.”
—Hap Erstein, Theatre Writer, Palm Beach Post

“But nothing lasts forever, particularly in the world of advertising, and with this show Fox is trying to make lemonade out of the bitter experience…Fox has a pleasant tenor singing voice and a way with clever lyrics, and his anecdotes are quite amusing.”
—Skip Sheffield, Staff Writer, Boca Raton News

“A Tom Lehrer kind of musical revue, a mixture of satire and social commentary...his musicianship is solid...”
—Christine Dolen, Theatre Critic, Miami-Herald
