Stone Cold Fox originated as an acoustic bedroom project at SUNY Purchase, where members Olken and Loh met as classmates. It has since expanded and grown into a solid indie-folk group that “emanates a youthful and energetic sense of comfort through beautiful songs, simple aesthetics, and innovative production” (FIKA Coffee Break). Drawing its musical influences from Radiohead and more, Stone Cold Fox's exceptional musicianship grew from a place of deep-seeded knowledge, rooted in the members' early experimentation with a variety of genres.
Jesse Ruben is a Philly-bred singer-songwriter currently living in Brooklyn, New York. He has independently sold over 10,000 albums, has had song placements on TV shows such as One Tree Hill, Degrassi, and Teen Mom and toured with some amazing artists including Jewel, KT Tunstall, Rick Springfield, and Hanson. His song "We Can" is in regular rotation on the XM/Sirius Coffeehouse channel, which called him “the next generation of singer-songwriter.”
With a sound that recalls Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash, but with the cynicism of grunge and punk, nobody could believe wry singer-songwriter Willy Mason was only 19 when he appeared on the indie scene. Born and raised on Martha's Vineyard, Mason grew up with his parents' love of folk music. He loved it too, but his teen years brought Nirvana and Rage Against the Machine into his life.
