“Silky rock-pop … a Mac Demarco-like swing to the riffs and chords.” – Northern Transmissions

“Foxwarren’s 10 tracks range in tone from brooding Elliott Smith-like ballads to Paul McCartney ditties … Shauf’s friends help him investigate his darkest emotional corners.” – Pitchfork

In November of 2018 the Canadian singer songwriter Andy Shauf and his childhood friends Dallas Bryson (guitar/vocals) and brothers Darryl Kissick (bass) and Avery Kissick (drums & percussion) released Foxwarren, their self-titled debut album that was a decade in the making. Today they are thrilled to announce their first-ever tour beginning in their hometown of Regina on May 29. Full tour dates throughout the US and Canada will follow and all performances are listed below. To mark the occasion they have also released their new video for the album track “Sunset Canyon”. Directed by Laura-Lynn Petrick and featuring actor and talk show host Busy Philipps.

“‘Sunset Canyon’ is one of my favorite songs from the Foxwarren album and I basically have been making my own music videos to the song since it came out,” said Philipps. “Working with [Director] Laura-Lynn on the video was so amazing. She is such a talent and I loved the easy going vibe of the day, wandering through the canyon with her in my mom’s dress from the sixties.”

Petrick also added, “The video was my ethereal gaze on a female seeking serenity in the nature that surrounds her. Inspired by Italian neorealism, Busy and I spent the day exploring the forests of the canyons and enjoying the winter sun reflecting with nature.”

Subtle and thoughtful, Foxwarren draws parallels to Andy Shauf’s solo work while leaning on collaboration and looseness rather than Shauf’s meticulous arrangements. Where Shauf leaves space for orchestration, Foxwarren take time to ruminate on passages and themes. Propped up by warm driving rhythms and a familiar voice, and coloured with soft electronics and coarse guitars, this record ultimately hinges on sincerity. It captures the feeling of friends pushing each other, of a band looking inward for inspiration instead of outward for influence.

Growing up in scattered small towns across the Canadian prairies, the band Foxwarren initially bonded over Pedro the Lion and drew influence from The Band and Paul Simon. Comprised of Andy Shauf (guitars/keys/vocals) and his childhood friends Dallas Bryson (guitar/vocals) and brothers Darryl Kissick (bass) and Avery Kissick (drums & percussion), Foxwarren’s self-titled album is out now via Arts & Crafts. Captured on 16 mm film, the new music video for the song “To Be” features zoom shots done in the style of Wes Anderson that focus in on characters who appear alone in expansive spaces.

“Sometimes the simplest ideas are the hardest to execute,” explained the video’s directors, Ft. Langley. “Our concept for ‘To Be’ – featuring tryptic of introspective portraits – came together at the 11th hour, despite having been originally written a year and a half ago. Locations fell through, actors dropped out, gear malfunctioned; what could go wrong did go wrong. Yet the final film manages to reflect, in its own scrappy way, the heartbreaking loneliness of Foxwarren’s song, despite breaking our own hearts a little along the way.”


“To Be” was one of the first songs written for the project. “We tinkered with it for ages and ended up drastically reworking it the weekend it was recorded, but we knew early on that it was going to be the opening song on the record,” Darryl said. 

“It was a guitar riff that I'd been playing for a few years at least, trying to figure out what to do with it,” adds Shauf. “It went through quite a few versions if I remember correctly. Foxwarren have a bad habit of never finishing vocal melodies and lyrics before we finish the music, so it made it a bit tricky and ended up being overhauled at the last minute.”

A few weeks ago Foxwarren gathered at Andy Shauf’s favourite Toronto haunt, the Skyline Restaurant, for a rare live performance. The set was captured for CBC First Play Live.

"...recalls classic pop songwriters in the vein of Harry Nilsson or Randy Newman, coupled with the plainspoken timbre of a Paul Simon, albeit with a laconic Canadian drawl." - NPR Music

"...one of the single most promising voices to emerge from Canada in recent
memory." - Flood Magazine

"’Everything Apart’ is one of the most imaginative, gorgeous, and stylish singles of 2018, and if listeners can expect the same amount of talent and charm from the album, this will be a quick contender for Album of the Year." – Atwood Magazine

As college friends, Foxwarren - Andy Shauf (guitars/keys/vocals) and his childhood friends Dallas Bryson (guitar/vocals) and brothers Darryl Kissick (bass) and Avery Kissick (drums & percussion) - initially bonded over Pedro the Lion and drew influence from The Band and Paul Simon.

“To Be” was one of the first songs written for the project. “We tinkered with it for ages and ended up drastically reworking it the weekend it was recorded, but we knew early on that it was going to be the opening song on the record,” Darryl said. 

“It was a guitar riff that I'd been playing for a few years at least, trying to figure out what to do with it,” adds Shauf. “It went through quite a few versions if I remember correctly. Foxwarren have a bad habit of never finishing vocal melodies and lyrics before we finish the music, so it made it a bit tricky and ended up being overhauled at the last minute.”

Now a decade into the project, Shauf reflects on their debut release: “So much time and effort went into making this album; it's something I think we're all really proud of. My touring and recording schedule got pretty wild over the past three or four years, so it put the Foxwarren album on the backburner. Making the album was such an enjoyable time - the collaboration and frustration of it all. All of us trying to make something better than we previously had. I'm excited to get it out into the world and have other people listen to it. We've been a band for 10 years or so and never properly released an album, so this is special for the four of us.”
