We are MAKS THE FOX
MAKS The Fox is an orchestral folk pop band from Chicago, IL. This creative collective features a unique combination of guitars, keyboard, viola, cello, bass, and drums. They break away from a more traditional setup and provide their audience with a diverse textural auditory experience. Singer songwriters Kori Simonson (vocals, guitar, keys) and Marlon Aguilar (vocals, guitar) started as a duo in 2012, and it has gradually grown to include members Sarah Cornish (viola, backup vocals), Rachel Schuldt (cello, bass, backup vocals) and Jacob Fawcett (drums, backup vocals)
Kori & Marlon starting recording songs with Dan Duszynkski (of Gold Motel, Any Kind, & Cross Records) and completed a debut album in 2013 with him. The band began writing more collaboratively on album #2 and continued to try out the new songs to crowds around Chicago & surrounding cities. (Lincoln Hall, Martyrs, The Whistler, Uncommon Ground, Jerry’s, Rozz Tox, Quenchers, 20+ shows… full list here) Dan is continuing to assist with album #2 and while the recording took place in Chicago at Marlon Recording… it is being mixed at Moon Phase Ranch in Dripping Springs, TX.
"From The Deer Forest" will be available in early 2016 and is heavily influenced by the beauty of Chicago.
