Hugh Fox is a freelance cellist based in Oakland, California. He started playing cello when he was 11 years old, and studied cello and music at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Oakland Public Conservatory, and The Jazzschool in Berkeley. He is working ever so slowly but surely on an associate degree in music from Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, and continues to study improvisation with Jim Grantham, and cello with Gael Alcock, who emphasizes thoughtful technical exploration, improvisational skills, and charitable performance.

He's currently working on a solo project of far out improvisational music inspired by polar environments and exploration, accompanying himself with a loop sequencer.

He is a frequent substitute cellist for Blue Rabbit (San Francisco-based indie rock band fronted by three women weaving gorgeous harmonies), and in fact has mainly focused on the indie/alternative rock genre over the years, playing and/or recording with a number of local bands, such as Souljourn 44 (soulful rock), Ash Reiter (upbeat folk-rock), Osphiera (psychedelic folk-rock featuring celtic harp), AmesEla (soulful vocals with electronica), and Darkades (experimental jam). He has also played with classical chamber ensembles, including celloposse (cello quartet) and gladspirit trio (flute-violin-cello).

And he's always eager to consider new collaborations! You're cordially invited to use the Contact page.
