On Saturday, April 20th, Pacific Northwest act Fox & Bones set up for a duo performance at Pine Creek Lodge at 7pm. They’ll perform selections from their fall release, Better Land, among other tunes.
Sarah Vitort and Scott Gilmore are the modern day Bonnie and Clyde, if Bonnie and Clyde had driven a Volvo and played folk-pop music. Based in Portland, these internationally touring sweethearts aren’t your average duo. Rather than simply documenting their experiences in song, Vitort and Gilmore write from the perspective of quasi-fictional characters. There’s Fox, a down-and-out it girl, and Bones, a rootless orphan bad boy with a heart of gold. The two fall for each other, decide to hit the road, and never look back. The characters, as well as their real-life counterparts, use music as the canvas on which they paint a new life together that defies traditional relationship roles and life goals.
Their music is ripe with vocal harmonies that pull at the heartstrings and a complex, at times metaphysical, lyrical landscape. Each element serves their stories of a life lived on the road, in pursuit of a dream that most never have the courage to chase. Live, they give audiences a peek into their world and challenge them to believe in life, adventure, and modern love.
