Just the right wistfully optimistic medicine to keep listeners moving as we shift from one season to the next.”

Jonathan Frahm, PopMatters

Fox & Bones [reminds] us of the beauty of the USA. With music that goes down like jelly, is sometimes sweet like Southern Sweet Iced Tea with extra sugar and addictive like peanut butter.”


These two will lull you with their sweet and delicate melodies and woo you with their complex lyrics. Recommended if you like: making out slowly, folk and singer/songwriter tunes, music you can hum to.”

Their two voices meld so perfectly together that you never want to stop listening.”

Fox and Bones

Fox and Bones are the modern day Bonnie and Clyde, if Bonnie and Clyde had driven a Volvo and played folk-pop music. Based in Portland, OR, these internationally touring sweethearts aren't your average duo. Rather than simply documenting their experiences in song, Sarah Vitort and Scott Gilmore write from the perspective of quasi-fictional characters. There’s Fox, a down-and-out former prom queen, and Bones, a rootless orphan bad boy with a heart of gold. The two fall for each other, decide to hit the road, and never look back. The characters, as well as their real-life counterparts, use music as the canvas on which they paint a new life together that defies traditional relationship roles and life goals. Their music is ripe with vocal harmonies that pull at the heartstrings, and a complex, at times metaphysical, lyrical landscape. Each element serves their stories of a life lived on the road in pursuit of a dream that most never have the courage to chase. Live, they give audiences a peek into their world, and challenge them to believe in life, adventure, and modern love.

Vortex Magazine gushes: "Scott Gilmore's voice, full of character and color, melds with Sarah Vitort's warm and expressive vocals. There is an ease and a simplicity to their music, but the complexity of their voices is intriguing. Their tight melodies weave throughout each performance and leave the listener breathless. Vitort and Gilmore have an undeniable chemistry on stage, stealing furtive glances and sometimes locking eyes with an intimacy that showcases how vulnerable they are with one another and their audience."

The pair released their funky folk pop single "Little Animal" on August 31st to critical acclaim. PopMatters calls the song a "jovial, clap-along tune [that] is meant to be a reflection on life itself. Musically, it gets the job done by featuring sunny hooks and sweet shared vocals that never veer too hard from its pop basis." Austrian publication WhatISawFromTheCheapSeats adds that the adventurous storytelling nature of the song is reminiscent of the stories of Paolo Coelho, praises the song's "joie de vivre."

The pair will release their sophomore 11-song album "Better Land" on October 19th, which will feature "Little Animal" and the previously released "Love Me Like a River."
