T-Fox is a singer, songwriter, and entertainer who is critically acclaimed for his six-octave vocal range and multi-talented instrumental skills. He has the total package–spirituality, passion, professionalism, charisma, and outstanding showmanship. An artist who can switch back and forth between genres as seamlessly as he switches octaves and costumes while captivating and amazing his audience is a rare find. Those qualities were all on display while performing his high-energy 4-1/2 hour, 6 days a week, one-man show for his loyal and delighted fans at the Tropicana Casino in Las Vegas for 15 years. Such was his popularity in Las Vegas, that Mayor Oscar Goodman called him “The Spirit of the Strip” and honored him with the Key to the City and a proclamation naming August 24th as “T-FOX DAY”. He was also the proud recipient of the 2014 BMA Las Vegas Entertainer of the Year Award.
He performed for several years at the Tropicana Hotel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and was a Headliner at the world-famous Resorts Hotel & Casino’s 1,500-seat Superstar Theater in Atlantic City, New Jersey to many sold out audiences. In addition to performing in casinos for years, T-FOX has performed at the Inaugural Balls for two U.S. Presidents, corporate affairs, clubs, private parties, Bar Mitzvahs, weddings and festivals.
But T-FOX is not just a performer doing a one-man show. He is also a very creative producer. His crowd-pleasing “House Party Variety Show” productions appeal to all ages and have been enjoyed in Atlantic City and Las Vegas as they continued to increase in popularity with each production. T-FOX produced several different “House Party” productions packed with extremely talented and seasoned professional singers, dancers, actors and magicians that take you on a soul-stirring musical journey through yesteryear from the Moulin Rouge cancan dancers and stomping at the Savoy, to the Rat Pack era, the Motown era, the Disco era and more.
This Brooklyn, NY native was born to a jazz singer-recording artist mother and a French-Canadian-Indian father. As T-FOX was growing up, the family moved to Detroit, where his mother was involved with the creation of Hitsville U.S.A. that later became Motown Records. His mother immersed him in music and the entertainment industry from an early age. Some of the most legendary icons in the entertainment industry like Sarah Vaughn, Nancy Wilson, Dionne Warwick, some members of the Temptations, Sylvia Moy, and the Founder of Motown, Barry Gordy, who were all close friends of his mother, inspired T-FOX. Throughout his childhood in Detroit, members of the Dramatics frequently created and rehearsed some of their famous songs in his home. Not many young people can say they were afforded this privilege. And while in high school, T-FOX was given a scholarship to study art at the world-class, prestigious Interlochen Center for the Performing Arts in Traverse City, Michigan. The exuberant T-FOX was fortunate to have two of Interlochen’s top educators take an interest in his development. William Warfield, a concert bass-baritone singer and actor, played the role of “Porgy” in the Broadway version of “Porgy and Bess”. This extremely talented and accomplished professional took T-FOX under his wing and improved his vocal technique. Eva Jessye, a conductor, arranger, actress and educator, who also appeared in the musical “Porgy and Bess,” and was the choral director for the Broadway version of Porgy and Bess for 23 years, focused on T-FOX’s diction and his production skills. Ironically he entered Interlochen to focus on his art skills but received a bronze medal for his musical accomplishments instead.
These experiences helped to shape and develop this impressionable young man into the smooth and soulful powerhouse we know today. His repertoire is so rich and varied it includes more than a thousand well-known tunes in addition to his own material. He has written and recorded more than 350 original songs some of which were sold commercially. His unique talents are displayed in many genres of music including such diverse styles as R&B, Jazz, Neo-Soul, Funk, Country, Top 40, Blues, Broadway show tunes, the great Swing & Standards of the 40’s, 50’s & 60’s, and hits from the Motown era, the dance tunes and love songs from the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s, to some of today’s most popular music. Each song is delivered in his inimitable T-FOX style.
