Its been 7 months since I last posted on here, it’s time we started again. Here goes.
Hi, I’m Henny, short for Henrietta, full name
Henrietta Gail Fox. I was born on 5th May 1993, which makes me 19 years 11 months 25 days young. I was born and grew up in Eccles, Salford, which makes me Northern through and through. My not-so-northern accent however comes from my grandparents who were from Cambridge - although catch me when I’m saying ‘both’ or after a couple of cheeky tipples, you soon hear the Manc side. I have 6 tattoos and 11 piercings.
I went to a private primary school, knew my 9 times table by the time I was 9 then later went on to a state high school. Managed to get myself booted out of sixth form, so decided to put life into my own hands and start living. I worked in Romania at 16, travelled to Africa at 17, then moved to London at 18. Since being 14 I have had 6 jobs. I can make great froth for your favourite cappuccino, I know how to mock an Italian, I can sell you a Miss Selfridge account card (10% off your first shop and free vouchers? Maybe a side of debt with it too?) open your eyes to world poverty, knock up a mind blowing gin martini and tell you that Ryan Reynolds is just as good looking in the flesh eating a prawn cocktail. He also likes sparkling water, not still.
I have three best friends, Emily Constantine, Richard Foster and Macy my dog. Richard is also my boyfriend
(known as Mr Sous Chef in past blogs!) I have bad habits like picking my feet and scratching my nose and I hate mustard, horse radish and aniside. I also hate liars, false promises, cheats and people that disrespect others. I wouldn’t call myself a Christian, but I know the bible back to front. I also know that “faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things unseen”.
Last but not least, I am a musician. I’ve been playing instruments since I was 4 and writing songs since I was 16. Music is my life, it’s what I have that is mine. Music to me is saying what I could never say in words. Sometimes it can break, but other times it can rebuild. In my case it eases and restores, It brings back what was lost. I now have a new set of people backing me - we’re creating some new material and exploring new horizons. You can find us here -
and on twitter and facebook and on soundcloud.
It’s good to be back.
ps. we need a bass player!! hint hint cough cough…
