Born in New York City, Mimi Fox began playing drums at nine, and the guitar at ten. Inspired by the wide variety of music enjoyed by her family and her own youthful penchant for pop, folk, and R&B, she bought her first jazz album at fourteen "because it was on sale." That album, John Coltrane's classic Giant Steps, changed the course of her musical life. Fox began touring immediately after high school and moved to San Francisco in 1979 where she became a sought-after musician. She is on the faculty of the Jazzschool in Berkeley, California, and has appeared as guest clinician at the University of Connecticut, University of Oregon, the Britt Music Festival (in Jacksonville, Oregon), and other distinguished institutions. She has also received numerous awards for her original scores for dance, theater and film. Most Recently, she was named "Rising Star" in the Downbeat critics poll for 2003.
Mimi maintains a whirlwind tour schedule, performing in major jazz clubs and festivals from New York to Tokyo. She has performed with fellow guitarists Charlie Byrd, and Charlie Hunter, as well as with the Turtle Island String Quartet and has shared the stage with a wide array of artists; she has also been featured on a number of television shows including BET on Jazz.
Her most recent recording, Two for the Road (Origin Records) features Greta Matassa while Standards (Origin Records) is a solo guitar effort. Kicks, her second CD on the Monarch label, showcases her extraordinary soloing and features special guests Joey DeFrancesco on organ, keyboardist Russell Ferrante and drummer Will Kennedy from the Yellowjackets, vocalist Angela Bofil, and guitarist Charlie Hunter. Turtle Logic (Monarch) with the Turtle Island String Quartet was her first commercial recording.
Equally adept on both steel string acoustic and hollow-body jazz guitars, Mimi Fox is a compelling musician, prolific composer, talented arranger, inspired teacher, and dynamic leader of her own band. She endorses Heritage Guitars.
