Music fans of the Pacific Northwest, get ready for our sixth annual year-end daily local music showcase, 100 Bands in 100 Days, where every day until December 31st, we’ll be showcasing a new band or artist you have to know about. For the fourth year in a row, the showcase is once again presented by Verity Credit Union.

Make sure you are checking the #100Bands100Days hashtag on Twitter on a daily basis to stay on top of all the bands featured and be sure to follow Verity and NW_Music_Scene on there. Some days the featured act could be an established and locally-adored northwest-based musician and other times they could be a band with a small following that just hasn’t had their deserved time in the spotlight yet. Either way, we’re fairly confident you can come away from this daily segment with plenty of new favorites. Today’s featured act is Foxy Apollo.


About the band: 

Yesterday we premiered a new track from Foxy Apollo and since we dug it quite a bit, we figured we might as well make them the featured band for today as well.

“Someday” is the first released track of Foxy Apollo’s upcoming LP expected to be released by 2020. This laidback lost romantic anthem debuts their new sound while emulating the feeling of easing stress and yearning for change while holding onto your roots.

On “Someday” Foxy Apollo ventures into the smoother jazz arena but manages to mix in just enough mild funk and soul to create a unique sound that will give jazz fans and many others plenty to sink their teeth into. The top notch instrumentation across the board constructs a solid foundation, while allowing Sam Ashkenazy’s vocals plenty of room to shine through. Add this one to your playlist!

(Check out “Someday” below via Soundcloud, get more information about Foxy Apollo HERE and listen on Spotify HERE.)
