K F Hox
Kathryn F. Hoxie, better known in the music world as KFHox, is a Bronxite by way of Rhode Island and Florida. Her musical training began when she about 10 years old in Warwick, Rhode Island by Gerry Granahan of GQ Records, where she was immersed in artists such as Karen Carpenter and Anne Murray. She continued with voice lessons and was in the choir throughout elementary school continuing on throughout her college career at Iona College, where she sang in the folk choir and the gospel choir.
During her time in Florida, she auditioned for American Idol and participated in several singing contests throughout the central Florida area. A relocation to New York was the golden opportunity for KFHox to make music in the city where her heart had always been. Raising over $5,000 in 32 days through Kickstarter, she recorded her first EP, “Light Shines Through Me,” which became available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon, & Spotify in early February 2012.
KFHox is currently recording new music with artists from all over the country, including Sunni G of South Carolina. Her song, “Him or the Music,” is a response to Sunni G’s song, “Her or the Music,” which talks about the struggles of balancing life in the music industry and a love life. The song is scheduled for an online release on Valentine’s Day 2012 through Kelly Kels Promotions also of South Carolina.

Interview with K F Hox
Dhylles Davis: Who is K F Hox?
K F Hox: Well, to be specific, K F Hox is just a shortened version of my full name, Kathryn F. Hoxie, but in most recent years, most people call me K Fhox. When I initially started using my stage name, it was honoring a few variations of my nicknames and also my grandmother whose name was Kay.
In a more metaphorical sense, K F Hox is a force working on healing the world through music.
Dhylles: When did you realize you were born an accomplishment?
K F Hox: I realized I was born an accomplishment as I survived spinal meningitis as an infant. When I got to the hospital, the doctor suspected that I wouldn’t make it through the night. I realized that, since then, everyday has been a gift, something I must use accordingly. I realized that my life was given an opportunity when the odds were against me so now it’s my obligation to live on purpose with purpose.
Dhylles: When was the last time you cried and why?
K F Hox: Probably yesterday. Haha. I’m a crier. I guess maybe it’s the result of being an intensely passionate person. I laugh as hard as a I cry. I actually have a song entitled, “I Cry” on soundcloud.com/kfhox. It’s a song produced by Doue Carter and reflects some of the niceties of being a woman, like crying when you’re happy or because you’re in love.
Dhylles: What give you strength and courage?
K F Hox: Faith. That word has single handedly allowed me to move in the face of all adversity. It was raised in the Catholic Church and have explored my faith in great pursuit since then, I attended Iona College, a Christian Brothers school, where I served as a campus minister and sang in the community college choir during my four years there. Living out of my car was the ultimate test of faith and taught so much about myself and my strength…or should I say, God’s strength.
Dhylles: Describe your life journey in one sentence.
K F Hox: My journey is an ever evolving, ego dissolving, faith inspired, and musically driven path destined for greatness.
Dhylles: Thanks so much for sharing K F Hox! Much continued success!
