“Like a symphony of croaking toads and cicadas emerging from the backwoods of southern Georgia, comes our toe-tapping, back porch picking, original swamp grass music”
Collectively, BoDean and The Poachers have one impressive resume even though they're still technically newcomers to the Georgia music scene.
Guitarist and singer-songwriter, Brandon Fox taught himself guitar at age 9 and shortly after his brother Todd recognized that unique talent and brought it to their father’s attention, an accomplished musician. By age 15, Brandon was playing with distinguished musicians 30 years his senior and considered one of the best guitarists in the region. Brandon's distinct sound has made him a staple of the Bo Henry Band for the past two decades, who has opened up for The Marshall Band and played prolific venues such as The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida.
