Mayan Fox Australian flood relief fundraiser

Hey loyal Linescratchers readers.  Nate Hamon of Mayan Fox has just let me know that from now until Valentine’s Day ALL income generated by the sales of their album Outfoxed will go to flood relief in Australia.  As most of you have read all over the news, the recent flooding in Australia has cost lives, property, and livelihoods, and has covered a massive area.

Outfoxed has just been awarded the 2010 Linescratchers Staff Pick Award, and so if you were on the fence about buying it, hopefully this will convince you.  It goes to a good cause, and it’s a great album.  Thanks for all your help and enjoy the album!  You can purchase it on their website HERE.

Mayan Fox

Our first featured band from Down Under, Mayan Fox is an exotic and eclectic pop group with an impressive blend of sounds. Having already made a splash in our podcast, Mayan Fox is an optimistic and catchy band with a very world-conscious lineup. Nate and Maria Hamon, husband and wife, not only write, sing, and perform music but also speak out about issues that are often overlooked in America, especially that of forced labor and slavery all around the world. I got in touch with Nate and Maria and asked them about their influences, the causes that motivate them, their music, and their faith, and they graciously agreed to have their interview published here. For everyone who enjoys music that is as fun as it is deep, read on. Continue reading “Mayan Fox”
