Review from Wildy's World:

Foxfire - Early Rising
2008, Sludge Hammer Records

Marietta, Georgia's Foxfire is a classic power trio born from the early 1970's Garage Metal movement. If the Runaways got into an alley fight with Courtney Love and Hole and put together a band from whoever was standing at the end then you might have something a bit like Foxfire. Big guitar sound and structure are the key elements here; melody and composition are almost secondary on Early Rising, the band's debut CD. Vocalist Rachel Collins has a decent Rock/Metal voice, engaging the same rasp that made Janis Joplin a household name but without the same tone or color.

I've listened through this album several times now, and I struggle to find even one track that really stands out from the rest. That's not an indication that the album is bad, it's solid and fairly uniform throughout. The sound has a definite Lo-Fi flavor, sounding like it may have been recorded in one or two takes in a concrete room with minimal production gloss. The sound is true to the nature of the band, who are probably better appreciated in a live setting. In a bar, with the amps turned way up, Foxfire can create a wall of sound through sheer force. On CD, it just doesn't carry quite as well, with the music sounding a bit thin and a bit too much like so much that's gone before.

Early Rising isn't a bad album, but there also isn't anything specific about it that elevates it to memorable status. Early Rising represents solid work from a solid band.

Rating: 2.5 Stars (Out of 5)

Foxfire in the Marietta Daily Journal

The Marietta-based rock band Foxfire is hosting a festival to celebrate Women's History Month, focusing on art and music from female artists. The festival is March 22 at Lenny's Bar and Grill at 486 Decatur Street in Atlanta. The purpose of the festival is to promote awareness of women, especially local women, in art and music. Foxfire relocated to Marietta last year, when their drummer and part-time singer Kris Hale and her husband, Stephen Carrington (who plays bass guitar and sings back-up with Foxfire), moved to the east Cobb area, where Carrington grew up. Cost is $7 and the show is restricted to those 21 and older. Doors open at 9 p.m. Contact Foxfire through their MySpace page at www.myspace.com/Foxfire or Lenny's Bar at (404) 577-7721 --By Sally Litchfield, as printed in the Marietta Daily Journal on 12 March 2008
