What You Need To Know
Fox & Foal is an up-and-coming, folk-inspired worship duo from Fayetteville, Arkansas. Dave Williams and Brooke Hobbs first began leading worship together at the University of Arkansas Wesley College Ministry in the fall of 2015. After a few years of serving on staff in the local church, they began writing original songs together that was inspired by the move of God in their own lives.
The band name, Fox & Foal, represents their musical pursuits. "Human nature's inclination toward sin is represented by the cunning fox," Williams explains. "While the constant presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives is represented by the foal." The two images poetically capture the emerging vision the duo is cultivating; to connect the people of God with the presence of God in a transformative, and artistic way.
What it Sounds Like
"Give It All" is a beautiful breath of surrender that floats perfectly in the spring air. Without big and polished production, the acoustic-driven foundation is accented nicely with sporadic electric guitars on the choruses and bridge. Brooke takes lead vocals with Dave providing the harmonies.
This is a song of surrender and anticipation for what's to come after fully giving God control I give it all to you/Surrounder all of me/I lay down my life 'cause in your name there's victory/I give it all to you/Every breath I breathe/You are my desire so come and set a fire in me.

Fox & Foal is a calming, folk centered duo that will still satisfy with repeated listens. It will be fun to watch them release more music in the coming months.
