After taking home the grand prize win at Buskerfest (Long
Beach's largest and longest-running battle-of-the-bands competition) and being
named "Best Folk Act" by the OC Weekly, the on-stage bandmates and off-stage
girlfriends of Glitterfox (formerly Bearcoon) made a bold decision: to sell 95%
of their possessions, quit their jobs, give up their apartment, and begin
touring the country full-time.
The duo spent the next two years living in their Chevy G20
van, touring the country full-time, and making appearances at some of Southern
California's most noteworthy festivals - Joshua Tree Music Festival, Music
Tastes Good, and multiple appearances at the Long Beach Folk Revival Festival.
Glitterfox has released two studio albums, the first of
which, El Guapo, reached the #1 spot on amazon.com's
"Hot New Releases" list and would later go on to be voted "Long Beach Album of
the Year." Summed up best by Live Rock Gig: "El Guapo is a collection of
poetic lyrics combined with spellbinding harmonies... a profoundly heartfelt
collection of recordings."
Glitterfox is currently finishing up their third studio
album with plans to release in September 2019.
