The Felix


The Felix

The Felix emerged from the center of Manhattan’s Lower East side in the springtime of 2016. Life long friends, Jeffrey James and Blake Skipper, began writing and producing songs for what initially was to be a humble studio project born from a mutual desire to create something new and unique. Using the skeletons of their influences mixed with personal experiential storytelling, The Felix have constituted a sound all their own.

July 21st, 2016, the duo introduced themselves with the release of “Coming Back – a song about dissipated friendships and the betrayal of trust. After, The Felix would release three more songs, the last of which being “The Other Side of Night”, a brooding ballad of a lost kin. The success of these singles would result in the surpassing of one million streams on Spotify alone.

The Felix is a conscious combination of electronic synth pop, indie rock, and urban influences spanning across decades. The emotive yet measured presence of Jeffrey’s vocals incorporate a stylistic range that bears echos of R&B and American Folk. This matchless amalgamation allows them to resonate a modern sound that’s truly their own, without staying bounded to predefined genres.

The two have spent the first quarter of 2017 writing and recording with plans of multiple summer releases as well as live performances. “Still Holding On”, a driving synth-based track, will deliver on June 9th, 2017, paving the way for a fresh batch of singles.
