Mimi Fox

Mimi Fox is at the peak of her career. Named “Rising Star” in DownBeat's 2003 Critics Poll, she is also profiled in that magazine's special feature, “66 Hot 6-Stringers: DownBeat's Look at the Guitarists Making Today's Scene,” which presents “66 guitarists in the worlds of jazz, blues and beyond whose work is innovating, invigorating and perpetuating the guitar tradition.”

From virtuoso solo guitar to performances of her original music with orchestra, Mimi truly does it all. She has performed with fellow guitarists Charlie Byrd and Charlie Hunter, as well as with Grammy award winner David Sanchez, saxophonist Don Lanphere, Manhattan Transfer's Janis Siegel, German Hammond B3 organ phenomenon Barbara Dennerlien, among many others. She has shared the bill with a wide array of artists including Diana Krall, Stevie Wonder, Kenny Burrell, and John Sebastian, and has been guest soloist with several orchestras, including Orchestra Sonoma, performing her original scores. Fox has composed music for theater and film, and has been featured on numerous television shows such as BET on Jazz. Mimi maintains a whirlwind touring schedule, playing major jazz clubs and festivals from New York to Tokyo, including tours of the Caribbean, Japan, Thailand, and Australia. She has performed at The Village Gate in New York City; Blues Alley in Washington, D.C.; Jazz Alley in Seattle; and Yoshi's, the Great American Music Hall, and Kimball's East in the San Francisco area
