Kim Ann Foxman
I managed to catch this lady at one of Dublin’s current best spots for underground music Tengu Yamamori club/bar. She was positively excellent, deep, melodic & the right amount of toughness when needed.
I must admit I had only recently heard one of her solo efforts recently after digging through some old Detroit tracks and can’t stop listening since.
Former vocalist of the band ‘Hercules and Love Affair‘ she is now out on her own taking on a quite different sound in the form of Djing & she certainly knows her way around a set of decks.
So you can read the full biography below with more links at the end..quite interesting so please do.
She has a lot of good sets so I have posted a few starting with her early boiler room in 2013, 2014 and then 2015 in NYC 😉
Check ’em out, she is already hot property & the only way is up!
