Trick The Fox are a trio with an interesting history. Originally from Wales,  Ren - who had already been writing and performing from young age - moved to Bath after years of playing dingy pub gigs. He soon found Charlie, an equally passionate musician who quickly became his bandmate and best friend. Together, they were part of a few bands and busked frequently, attracting the attention of many important music industry moguls. After beginning to gig in London, the boys went in search of a drummer to complete their band. Charlie and Ren came across Tommy when he represented Ealing with his drumming skills in the Adidas 'Take The Stage' Campaign. They instantly clicked and the band has been gigging together all over London ever since, building on their ever-growing fanbase. 

The band come as a breath of fresh air in today's music world; whilst copycat pop artists struggle to be seen over the other auto-tuned wannabes of YouTube and talentless reality show hopefuls, Trick The Fox have gone their own way. Influenced by a diverse range of artists such as Eminem, Bob Marley, The Police and Red Hot Chili Peppers, they have composed their own mash-ups of well-known hits across a variety of genres, as well as producing original songs - writing and recording the lyrics in addition to the accompanying music (an excellent combination of guitar, drums, bass, double bass, piano and beat-box).

Due to the technical nature of the way in which music is recorded today, many skillful musicians and vocalists lose their 'voice' as producers so frequently feel the need to autotune and digitally enhance music to make it commercially viable. Trick The Fox are a group that prove that talent alone can take you very far - they have been spotted by top music industry experts whilst busking on London streets, leading to a great level of interest from record labels. However, before settling with any label, the boys' aim to work on their sound and continue to gig as much as possible. Currently, they are managed by electronic dance duo, Basement Jaxx's manager and have recorded an album with Plan B's producers - an incredible feat for a band that has been together only a matter of months. Having already been compared to the likes of The Police, Rizzle Kicks, Plan B and Jamie T, it won't be long before the band are showcasing their talents across the UK and Europe.
