THE STONE FOXES LAUNCH THE GOODNIGHT MOON PROJECT

San Francisco’s The Stone Foxes are embracing the spirit of giving this Holiday Season with the launch of the Goodnight Moon Project. The Goodnight Moon Project is an effort by The Stone Foxes to raise awareness for homelessness through music. Homelessness is an issue that hits very close to home for the band and inspired the song Goodnight, Moon off of the bands third album, Small Fires, released earlier this year. Shannon Koehler was inspired to write the song from scenes that he encountered on his daily commute “In the morning, coming out of an underground train station in SF, you're sure to see homeless people who have slept in the cold the night before.” says Koehler “It's easy to become desensitized over time. I wrote the lyrics as a reminder to keep my eyes open.”

On their tour in support of Small Fires earlier this year The Stone Foxes teamed up with SuperFood Drive to take their message about homeless out on the road. At each tour stop the band teamed up with a local food bank and asked fans to bring non-perishable food donations to their shows. While working with SuperFood drive the Stone Foxes embarked on a very unique musical collaboration with food bank and shelter beneficiaries. “The first recording we did at a shelter was a man named Walter who had lived under a freeway” says Shannon Koehler, “he sang our song about cold nights in the city. After we stopped rolling, he called me over and told me how much the song meant to him. You don't forget things like that. Goose bumps and watery eyes were the norm at these sessions. At shelters on tour and at home in San Francisco, people who know hard times have sang with us and shared their stories. It's been an honor to listen. We're just trying to share their voices.”
