Biography

Once upon a time, Little Red Riding Hood found herself lost in the dark woods, lured off the path by the cries of the feral creatures who dwell there. And she liked it so much that she decided to stay. She forgot the life she once knew; cast aside her innocence in the name of false gods, drank the blood of the fallen titan, danced with the bones of long forgotten dreamers, and sang love songs to the moon. She tore up her cloak, girt herself in leather and studs, and hunted from the shadows with her bare hands for fresh meat. But no matter how much she burned and bled in his name, always the Wolf called her deeper into the woods. And on some nights, when the moon was dark and the revelries subsided, she would think of that path she’d left so long ago, and wonder, too, whether salvation might lie at the end of her journey, or just another grave…

MoonFox is a bone clattering, boot stomping, San Francisco based rock and roll band. Formed in the embers of 2011 by songwriter and lyricist Danika Ingraham, the group is a vehicle for bringing her nightmares and fantasies to life through the ritual magick of song. Taking inspiration from the poetic anarchy of Patti Smith, the world weary cynicism of Tom Waits, and the hellish fury of Nick Cave, MoonFox seeks to forge a sound instantly recognizable and approachable, with a heavy dose of introspective and emotional lyrics that eat away at the psyche of the listener long after the music ends.

Fronted by the firecracker Ingraham, whose vocals lilt and moan like the echoes of a haunted whorehouse, the band is rounded out by the face melting leads of SF music veteran Stuart Ackridge (Flower Road, King Kong, Krayola Picasso, Too Hot To Bark, Naughty Women), the pulsating, shredding bass of Tommy Anderson (Electric Shepherd, The Love Dimension), and the relentless drum beats of Tyler Weeks.

With the release of their debut EP on the horizon, the streets of San Francisco are set to be filled with the lustful dead, riding jackalopes and howling at the moon, as they dance to the rhythm of damnation’s waltz, called from the earth by MoonFox’s siren song.
