Foxy Shazam's music is an unhinged, maniacal mix of piano, guitar, howling vocals, double-kickdrum percussion, and rock & roll theatrics.
The quintet hails from Cincinnati, Ohio, where bandmates Eric Nally
(vocals), Loren Turner (guitar), Daisy (bass), Sky White (piano), and Joe Halberstadt (drums) first joined forces in 2004. Recording sessions for The Flamingo Trigger began that year and stretched into early 2005, and Foxy Shazam supported the album's June release with a series of headlining show dates. New Weatherman Records took an interest in the band's rambunctious, genre-melding sound, and Foxy Shazam signed to the label before entering the studio for a second time. Released in partnership with Ferret Music
, Introducing Foxy Shazam arrived in early 2008. The next year the band made the juimp to the big leagues, signing on with Sire Records
and releasing its third album, the eponymous Foxy Shazam, in 2010. The album was well-received, and Foxy Shazam broke onto the Billboard
charts for the first time at number 151. In 2012 the theatrical rockers released their fourth album, The Church of Rock and Roll. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi
