9PM – “Pay What You Want”!

Watching for Foxes is an indie/folk rock band from Grand Rapids, MI. Forged through raw emotion and incessant gigging, this buzz-band makes their return to The Livery stage!

Starting in early 2014, Watching for Foxes began as three childhood friends from Fremont, MI reuniting to play music together in a vacant classroom in the high school they once attended together. With their eventual relocation to Grand Rapids soon after, and their voracious yet conscious acquisition of both art and experience, a cacophony of sound exploded. Creating a unique and powerful sonic landscape that they call “cinematic folk,” with strings that color and shade moods like a film score might and guitar licks that somehow sound both familiar and unique, their songs about heartbreak, rebellion, and discovery fuel an unbridled brand of poetry enveloped in an orchestral, sweeping sound. The band employs a creative ethos that pushes them to serve only exactly what each song, and each story, needs; no frills, no gimmicks, less always being more. Drawing from artists who seamlessly blend roots genres with a modern rock sensibility, including old guard luminaries like Tom Petty and Bob Dylan, to nineties stalwarts like Counting Crows and REM, and new school icons like Band of Horses, Jason Isbell, Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, The National, and Noah Gundersen, Watching for Foxes stakes an artistic claim that is all their own.
