Dante Fox were formed in September 1989 by lead vocalist Sue Willetts. She was quickly joined by guitarist Tim Manford and this created a golden partnership. On the strength of their songs Dante Fox caught the interest of Linda Bruce from Rich Bitch Studios and a debut album was now a reality. In October 1996 the debut, Under Suspicion, was released. The second album, The Fire Within, was released on Frontiers Records in March 1999.
The band took a break and returned in 2005, with a slot at Firefest and a UK tour support to Vixen. The third album Under The Seven Skies was released worldwide on Frontiers Records in March 2007 featuring the nine-minute epic title track. The Fourth album, Lost Man’s Ground, released in October 2012 at the band’s appearance at Firefest. This featured a new rhythm section Andy Perfect (Drums) and Alan Mills (Bass), and also Alessandro Del Vecchio on backing vocals and Eric Ragno on keyboards.
Sue Willetts was voted 19 in the top 50 Female vocalists of all time in Classic Rock Magazine alongside Ann Wilson and Cher.
The new album, Breathless, was recorded with Mark Stuart/Sheena Sheer and mixed and mastered at M2 Studios UK in May 2016 by Sheena Sear (Magnum). The album also features Keyboardist Eric Ragno and vocalist Lee Small who sang harmony backing vocals. Dante Fox are very excited to be working with AOR Heaven on Breathless and looking forward to presenting the new album. (adapted from Facebook)
