RedFox was formed when folk duo Jono Townsend and Tim Loten relocated to Montreal and joined up with vocalist/fiddle virtuoso Daphnee Vandal. After months of honing their sound and rehearsing in apartment living rooms, the band had a vision, but was having difficulty finding their missing piece. Determined, they decided it was time to expand. Hoping to achieve a broader, more dynamic sound, the trio reached out to experienced metal drummer and longtime university friend, Sam Neumann, to join on drums, as well as prog-rock bassist Sam Robinson to complete the outfit. Their sound was transformed into the folky, ambient, high-energy experience that we come to know as RedFox, retaining their acoustic roots while also exploring and blending more electric sounds. The group can trace their influences back to bands such as Punch Brothers, Half Moon Run, and Paramore.

Since its birth, the band has released two EPs and one single. The first self-titled EP features “Calling Out” and “A Song for the Little Ones”. The second, titled 'Recovery', was released in 2019, featuring “Hurry Up” and finishing with their powerful and emotional track “Stay”. Despite the difficulties in 2020 for musicians, RedFox has pushed forward, releasing 3 new singles, their most recent one being "Runaway", released on October 13th. RedFox is currently in the process of writing and recording new material leading up to their debut album for summer 2021. Notable past performances include Kemptville Live Music Festival for two consecutive years (2018-2019), Opinicon Music Festival (2019) and Stewart Park Music Festival (2019).
