Tonya Fox has been singing most of her life and has been writing music as long as she could remember. As a young girl she grew up listening to such great artists as Loretta Lynn, Hank Williams and Johnny Cash while spending time with her grandfather. Tonya's grandfather was the driving force in her passion for Country Music .“My grandfather was an all America man, from his head to his toes he was Country, ” she tells us. Growing up Tonya was exposed to all types of music. She relays that her family was not to picky about the music they listened to, so she listened to almost everything. Country stole her heart and she has been stuck like glue every since. This young lady has a voice that is unstoppable, and as far as she is concerned she has placed herself in a “learning status” a Novice of sorts. In her eyes singing is apart of who she is and her reality is every note. As modest as she is, there is no denying the talent that is there and the talent that has yet been tapped. But time will tell and the world will soon come to find that Tonya Fox as a member of GoldFox will be one of those that you are simply drawn to
