After their first North American tour supporting English artist Barns Courtney, FOXTRAX is hard to miss.

Long Island natives Ben Schneid (Vocals, Guitar), Jon Stenz (Drums), and Jared Stenz (Bass) began making music together in early 2015 after they each graduated from college. Tossing convention to the wind, they holed themselves up in a cabin in the woods of North Carolina for six weeks.
During their hiatus from the hustle and bustle of New York, the trio wrote a handful of demos that would eventually become The Cabin EP.

The name FOXTRAX was born after realizing that the fox tracks left in the snow outside their cabin represented their own unpredictable and meandering path into music.
Upon returning to New York they completed The Cabin EP with Reed Black at Vinegar Hill Sounds Recording Studio in Brooklyn. By the end of 2015, FOXTRAX relocated to Los Angeles where they began honing their live show. After a brief few months, Producer/Engineer, Ben Roulston (Florence and the Machine, Wolf Alice), heard The Cabin EP demos and decided he could take their career to a new level. Roulston added production and a fresh mix to the EP and Brian Lucey (Arctic Monkeys, Cage the Elephant, Black Keys) hopped on board to master the tracks.
The Cabin EP was greeted with a warm reception from both critics and fans, leading to a sold-out release show at Mercury Lounge in New York. FOXTRAX has been named among the 'One's to Watch' by Live Nation. Their infectiously catchy debut single «Underwater» is an Alternative Spotlight track at iTunes / Apple Music and has been supported by Sirius XM's Alt Nation & The Spectrum.

They hit the road with another critically acclaimed artist, Barns Courtney, in the summer of 2017, stopping by many regional TV morning shows along the way.

The band recently returned to Vinegar Hill Studios in New York to record their sophomore EP, titled Nothing Lasts Forever. Rejoining engineer Reed Black and British producers Alexander Wolfe and Ben Roulston, FOXTRAX sophomore effort offers mature and introspective songwriting combined with their infectious alt-rock sound. After tracking was completed in New York in the midst of the bands North American tour, Roulston returned to London to mix the EP. Mastering was done by Brian Lucey in LA at Magic Garden Mastering.

The band is set to release one song from the 3-song EP every 6 weeks. The flow of music will be as bountiful as the band's creativity. Touring has inspired the trio and the material has been evolving. The spotlight follows FOXTRAX and they are fast becoming a band more-than worthy of it!
