“White Gold Tear,” Faust & Fox — Anyone worried about the future of Marin music need only chill out and listen to “White Gold Tear,” the debut album from Faust & Fox, a brother-sister duo from Corte Madera. Thirty-year-old singer-songwriter Trevor Marcom, who holds a degree in performance from the Boston Conservatory, wrote the 11 hooky, melodic songs on the ballad heavy album, handling lead vocals in a crooner’s voice that recalls Michael Buble or Peter Cincotti. On the album’s first single and video, “Sweeping the City,” a dark-hearted mid-tempo love song, sister Kate Marcom’s breathy vocal shadows her brother’s with such sensitivity and precision that it sounds as if they were singing in one voice.
On this slick, polished debut, the siblings surround themselves with some of Marin’s finest pros, including Mill Valley ace Jimmy Dillon on electric and acoustic guitars, former Robert Cray drummer Kevin Hayes and longtime Van Morrison bassist David Hayes. Michael Matson conducted a four-piece string section and the Marcoms’ father, Roy, adds keyboards. Faust & Fox have youth, talent, engaging songs and extraordinary voices. What else is there? They have it all.

Thank you all so much for helping us sell out our record release show at the Throckmorton in June! HUGE SUCCESS. It was great to see you all there. We’re playing another big show on October 29th at the famous Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley featuring Jimmy Dillon and the Black Diamond Rhythm Section. And we want you back. Real real bad.
Come kick off Halloween weekend early on a Thirsty Thursday. No chairs this time, just sweet dance floor real estate. Will there be a F&F signature cocktail? We don’t know…WILL THERE?
Hey guys! FAUST & FOX will be special guest artists with the Jimmy Dillon Band at the Fenix Club (1919 4th Street, San Raphael) this Friday night August 21st at 8pm. Jimmy is a monster guitar player. This show will be a blast!
