Secret Friend is the nom de plume of Thailand-based songwriter and recording artist Steven Fox. Steven’s career in music goes all the way back to the early 80’s when he played bass guitar in a popular Seattle high-school band whose sound and style anticipated the grunge movement. He moved to London in the mid 80’s where he worked as a sound designer and created samples and sounds used by major artists and producers on numerous chart-topping hits in the USA and the UK.

In 1990 Steven put his music career on hold and moved to South East Asia where he studied Mandarin Chinese, created the very first Chinese language dating/matchmaking website, and co-founded what would become the first independent, Asian-based, multinational interactive advertising agency, winning several local creative awards. In 2000, Steven co-founded BehindTheBeat, building an extensive online library of songwriter audio portraits, whose clients include ASCAP.

In 2012 Steven returned to music full-time and created Secret Friend. Secret Friend’s first album, Time Machine, was recorded in Los Angeles with Linus of Hollywood producing, and Willie Wisely and Kelly Jones on vocals. The album was released January 2013 to much critical acclaim.

Secret Friend’s 2nd album, entitled Sleeper, was released August 2015. The new album takes Secret Friend in a radically different direction – creating a fusion of acoustic guitar based pop melodies with electronica and psychedelia production. The album features several guest vocalists, and each track has an accompanying music video.

Steven is currently working on more music for Secret Friend, as well as collaborations with others.
