Neal Fox, songwriter, multimedia artist and music industry veteran , joins the Citizens Commission on Human Rights of Florida in their upcoming 2011 Music Video Competition and Concert to raise awareness of the harms of psychiatric medications and the existence of alternatives.
Last year marked the first Annual Music Video Contest and Concert and it was a grand success, as covered by ABC’s “Good Life Tampa Bay”. http://www.cchrflorida.org/music-contest.html
This year, we are already receiving submissions for the 2011 contest and amongst the artists is Neal Fox.
We are honored to have him as part of our efforts to fully inform the public through the use of music and performance poetry.
Amongst Neal’s multi-talents there is the consistent drive to help enlighten the public about key social issues.
Fox was signed to Polydor, RCA and Columbia Records. In the 70s he had a charted single and Top Ten Dance Club Hit, “In the Jungle,” about the destruction of the Amazon rainforest. Billboard Magazine described him as: “A rueful Randy Newman eccentric…equally at home in blues, rock, pop and jazz motifs.”
He co-scored two Killer Tomatoes movies, composed and produced music for hundreds of commercials and wrote promos and themes for VH-1, MTV, and the major networks.
Most notable were his compositions for CBS Evening News with Dan Rather and Eye to Eye with Connie Chung.
Fox has been in the studio creating music videos which can be seen at www.YouTube.com/NealF
In September, he previewed his first short film, The Life and Times of Satchel Tomain, a lighthearted mockumentary which is making the rounds of film festivals. He’s also been self-releasing CDs on his indie label, Wire Duck Records, since the 90s.
His new Music Video for the CCHR Florida Contest will have it’s first showing at the Sept. 2011 Concert. Stay-Tuned!
