Since its birth in 2017, the band has put forward two EPs, various singles as well as an award winning full length album “Stranger Love”. The first two EPs feature such songs as “Calling Out”, “Breaking Down”, “Hurry Up” as well as their powerful and emotional track “Stay”. The band toured independently across Quebec and Ontario extensively promoting each of their releases and played over 30 shows throughout the summer (2019), including festivals such as Mariposa Folk, Stewart Park and Kemptville Live where they played the stage before George Thorogood.

Their single “Better Now” was released in February 2020 on all online platforms. The pandemic may have prevented the band from touring in the summer of 2020, but that didn’t slow them down. RedFox took this time off live performance to begin a Patreon page and expand their online presence on various social media platforms. They participated in and organized various live-stream performances from their rehearsal studio all while the band slowly wrote and exchanged musical ideas planning their future album that had yet to be written. In early 2021, wanting to remain active while not yet ready for the studio, they released “Quarantunes”, a home-studio EP containing some of their previous songs all recorded remotely and mixed themselves. Shortly after, the band took time in an Ontario cabin to isolate and write what would be their debut album, “Stranger Love”.

“Stranger Love”, released in October 2021, was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jacob Lacroix-Cardinal at Planet Studios, Montreal. The album has a dark tone to it and exploits Daphnée’s vulnerable side lyrically. There’s a dynamic range to the sound that moves from ambient and folk, to indie and rock that is distinctly RedFox. This album contains three singles: “Play”, “Runaway” as well as “Hey Mister” which has over 100,000 plays on spotify, and is featured in several prominent playlists online including alexrainbird, mahogany, indiefolkcentral, and more. They toured Quebec and Ontario in support of the album that fall and despite many health restrictions still in place, managed to make a profit as well gain new fans.

Summer 2022 was a busy one for the band. In June RedFox toured out east for the first time, going as far as Charlottetown P.E.I. They then proceeded to play multiple festivals around Ontario from July to August and wrapped up the summer with another Quebec to southern Ontario tour.

2023 is proving to be the bands most successful year to date, starting with a trip to Vancouver in April for the Canadian Folk Music Awards where the band won in the category of Best New Emerging Artist for “Stranger Love.” The band completed a self booked 30 date tour of the United Kingdom and Canadian Maritimes including stops at Living Roots in Fredericton, Seall on the Isle of Skye, Killin Music Festival in Scotland, as well as Exile Fest and Folk in a Field festivals in England. The band is currently working to record their second full length album set to be released in May of 2024 with a proceeding single to be released in March 2024
