About Fleet Foxes
Fleet Foxes is an American indie folk band formed in Seattle, Washington, in 2006. The band consists of Robin Pecknold (vocals, guitar), Skyler Skjelset (guitar, mandolin, backing vocals), Casey Wescott (keyboards, mandolin, backing vocals), Christian Wargo (bass, guitar, backing vocals), and Morgan Henderson (upright bass, guitar, woodwinds, violin, percussion, saxophone).
Fleet Foxes came to prominence in 2008 with the release of their second EP Sun Giant and their eponymous debut album. Though the group has received modest commercial success, their work has been highly hailed by music critics, who have praised their lyricism and somber productions and often noted the band’s use of refined instrumentation and vocal harmonies. The band’s debut album was ranked by Rolling Stone among the best of the decade and was also included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. The band has been nominated for two Grammy Awards.
