Who: Foxy Shazam
What: Rock N' Roll with an edge
Sounds Like: Queen with an alt/pop edge
With 5 albums credited to them dated as far back as the 2005 independent released Flamingo Tiger, the free spirited Foxy Shazam with edgy lyrics and over the top rock n roll were way overdue nationwide recognition. With the no bar campy attitude found in Foxy Shazman, they captured the spirit of Freddie Mercury and Queen in the image of vocalist Eric Nally and the band Foxy Shazam respectively.
The Cincinnati, Ohio based band have been around for close to a decade though their most mainstream album released in 2012 The Church Of Rock And Roll, had them close to breaking it wide open. And why not as this was a chockablock anthem filled album with the energy and bite of a pit-bull. Since then they have released a more stripped down self produced 2014 Gonzo that unfortunately will act as the bookend of their recording career at least for now what with the band on an indefinite hiatus.
In today's current music climate a decade is quite a survival for bands that are never given the chance to express themselves and grow. So if you blinked and missed Foxy Shazam and you want your rock n’ roll delivered with no apologies and are okay with a politically incorrect based lyrics then seek out the recordings of this overlooked free spirited band.
New Artists coming at you all the time.
