KNOX

Growing up in Ohio, Knox’s whole existence before he ever wrote a song was basketball, sound tracked  by artists such as Fall Out Boy, Panic! At the Disco, All-American Rejects, and Ed Sheeran. The summer  before he started at Ohio University, Knox finally picked up a guitar. He learned everything in a few  months, through YouTube videos. Knox began playing open mic nights and by his sophomore year, his  musical ambitions were so all-consuming that he dropped out of school, moved in with his grandma and  saved up money to move to Nashville. He made the leap in January 2019. 

Knox used Covid isolation to work on his craft. The focus paid off: his songs caught the attention of John  Harvie, who placed a few on his album. Knox signed a publishing deal in 2022 but was struck with the urge  to record some songs he had been working on. The result was How to Lose a Girl in 7 Songs, Knox’s debut  EP, released this past February. With his own songs ready, he now looked to build a fanbase. Knox filmed  TikToks featuring his song “Sneakers”, and 1 amassed nearly 2M views overnight. “Sneakers” now has  over 28M streams.  

Knox has since began touring, opening for the Band Camino, Nightly, and Boys Like Girls. “I'm 6 states  away from home and there’s a thousand people in the audience that are singing the song that I wrote with  my friends in my bedroom. And that's when it gets you, when you see people connecting to something that  I made with my best friends. It’s the most unreal feeling in the world.”
