Would You Form A Band With Your High School Friends? PHOX Did!

You hear about bands that grew up together, known each other since high school. While our guests today PHOX did know each other in high school, in Baraboo, WI, it did take some seasoning out in the world before they decided to form a band in the college town of Madison. PHOX resulted, formed around the irresistible smoky-shy voice of Monica Martin. They released their eponymous debut last year and today we catch up with the band live on stage at World Cafe Live.
