Talented Emerging Artist FØNX Releases New Single ‘Time’

FØNX delivers jazz-inspired grooves and sun-touched melodies, right on “Time”.

Drawing inspiration from the likes of George Benson and D’Angelo, FØNX delivers RnB-infused pop with jazz, funk and soul influences, merging catchy grooves, memorable hooks and intricate guitar licks with inspired lyrical content. ‘Time’ encapsulates these eclectic influences perfectly, packaging them into an infectious track exploring heartbreak and moving on from it.

“Music has always been the first thing I turn to when I need to vocalize my emotions. I wrote time after breaking up from a long-term relationship and finding out that this person had slept with someone new and clearly moved on swiftly. The only way for me to digest that was to write a song and include elements of humour to distract myself from the hurt,” FØNX explained.

Having first picked up the guitar at the tender age of 7, FØNX, whose real name is Corey Fox-Fardell, is set to release his debut EP later this year.

If ‘Time’ is anything to go by, it will be packed with irresistible grooves and masterful songwriting. With ongoing support from BBC Introducing, a recent feature on Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’ and playlisting in Zara stores globally, FØNX is undoubtedly one to watch in 2019.

Movie Review: COLLATERAL BEAUTY

IMG_8048

Hey, movie lovers!

I know I’m late to the game on this one, but I watched it last night with my niece and just had to post about it. To be quite honest, I’m surprised it has a 12% on Rotten Tomatoes! I can see how some people might not enjoy it as much as I did, but I wonder if the people who didn’t like it have experienced loss in their lives. From personal experience, I know how death can create these questions in your mind about love, time and death so the meaning behind the movie really hit me in the heart. My niece just loves any movie that can make her cry for some reason (teenagers!), but she loves this one!

SYNOPSIS: Retreating from life after a tragedy, a man questions the universe by writing to Love, Time and Death. Receiving unexpected answers, he begins to see how these things interlock and how even loss can reveal moments of meaning and beauty. 

Let me start by saying that Will Smith kills it in this movie. We all know he’s a great actor, but he hasn’t always chosen the best roles in his career. In this one though, he plays the role of a grieving father so perfectly that you can actually feel his pain. The entire cast does a great job, in my opinion. I found myself getting angry at his friends for scheming behind his back, then I felt sympathy for them because Howard’s grief has affected their lives as well. I think I felt every emotion imaginable while watching this movie and, for me, that’s a sign of a good one.

Every twist and turn in this movie was great and it’s not until the credits roll that everything sort of hits you all at once.

Usually when I see a new movie in the theater, or rent one on On Demand, I try to judge it based on whether or not I would actually buy it or possibly catch it again down the road when it’s streaming online. I rented this one last night and I would definitely buy it. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s one to at least check out. So grab a box of tissues and try to put yourself in this man’s shoes for about 2 hours.
