The Cox Brothers are Hull based singer songwriter guitarist John and lead guitarist Pete. Their style is a fusion of folk, jazz and pop with a very distinctive funky edge. John’s radio friendly songs have been a regular feature on BBC Introducing and the Burnsy Show on BBC Radio Humberside. In 2020 his song ‘2020 Vision’ received airplay on Tom Robinson’s BBC Radio 6 Music Show.
As a duo the boys perform exciting semi acoustic versions of John’s songs with Pete providing stunning guitar solos and rich textures over John’s groovy guitar and soulful vocals. And the boys are often joined by Dave Hughes on cajon giving their sound a more percussive, ethic vibe. Dave will be with the brothers at Tribfest 2021.
“John’s smooth soulful vocal is perfectly complemented by Pete's accomplished guitar playing... sometimes sweet and sensual other times positively electrifying! “ Frank Johnson - owner of Solos Music Cafe, Hull
