Foxy Apollo is a Seattle based funky blues band that was created when blues guitarist ‘Sam Ashkenazy’, and jazz/soul drummer ‘Satchel Schwartz’ fused together in 2016.
After having been out of touch since they were children, the two linked up together while playing in the jazz band at their school, and began making music together from there. They quickly recruited bassist ‘Jack Christian’, and started playing concerts at low end bars in Seattle. However, they grew frustrated by the lack of respect that younger musicians were receiving from the Seattle music scene. They decided that they would go their own route by putting together DIY shows and connecting with a wider range of people. Foxy Apollo’s bluesy, groovy, and funky rock sound is formed by the astounding influences in each member's playing. As well, their live performances captivate everybody with their meticulous approach to playing. The ‘Foxy Apollo’ project aspires to create a foundation where people can be inspired and expressive in all shapes and forms no matter their history or background. Listening to Foxy Apollo’s music gives you a taste of the many emotions and stories that have come through the group, and is intended to give you the opportunity to go out and create yourself. Currently, Foxy Apollo is working on recording their next release, after having put out their debut release Foxy Apollo - EP (2017).
