GLITTERFOX on Vashon Island
Debra Heesch Presents GLITTERFOX at Snapdragon Bakery & Cafe on Vashon Island!
March 28 at 8pm. Tickets are $20, all ages welcome.

Change and perspective expand quickly in tight quarters-and no one knows that as well as married couple Solange Igoa and Andrea Walker. It's true of each of their time as queer kids in need of an escape from conservative towns; of their years living together in a van, traveling the country to play music and busk; of settling down in a studio apartment just prior to the pandemic. And now, partnered with a rhythm section and produced by Chris Funk of the Decemberists, theyre harnessing the lessons from this closeness and cracking them wide open into a whole new world with their band Glitterfox.

The duo first met at a coffee house open mic in Long Beach, California, where Walker had recently relocated after growing up in North Carolina and Virginia. Walker quickly fell in love with Igoa's voice, knowing that if their vocals and guitar came together that would only flourish-and it did, the two now married and having spent more than a decade as a pair. Musically, channeling Walker's Southern warmth through Southern California indie shine, Glitterfox carves out lithe, nostalgia-fueled anthems powered by the intimacy of their relationship. "A lot of our songs are about serious challenges in our lives," Walker says. "All the struggles in my life get poured into the music, but always with this silver lining of hope, this drive not to quit before the miracle happens. Making a living as an independent musician is hard, but weve always had each other and always made it work."

Igoa and Walker quickly found new roots when they moved out of their van and settled down in Portland, Oregon, in 2018, quickly cementing a reputation for their boundless energy and positivity. Soon they were joined by Eric Stalker, a singer-songwriter who got along with the couple so well that he volunteered to learn bass as a way to join their band. Drummer Blaine Heinonen followed, the quartet now capable of producing grander leaps of musical gravity to crash through the couples golden-hued compositions.

The group's soaring intimacy quickly won over Pacific Northwest fans and heroes in addition to Funk, with Kill Rock Stars label head Slim Moon who jumped at the opportunity to sign them. Despite that rapid growth, the beating heart of Glitterfox will always be Walker and Igoa's love. "Having a band that's built around a healthy marriage is cool because it has longevity. We're a very stable unit and we're a family," Walker says. "We've learned how to trust each other's instincts. When Solange and I play together, its so second nature-their voice and my guitar are so intimately bound"
