CHARLIE & INEZ FOXX: INEZ FOXX
Highly expressive vocalist, Inez Foxx; best known for work in tandem with brother Charlie, had huge 1963 hit "Mockingbird."
On September 9, 1942, was born Inez Foxx, r&b soul singer, songwriter.and part of the duo, Inez & Charlie Foxx in the '60s.
This brother/sister duo from Greensboro made a little noise on the soul scene in the '60s. They signed with Juggy Murray Jones' Symbol label in 1962. Their biggest hit was "Mockingbird," in 1963, which was a number two R&B and number seven pop smash. Their vocal tradeoffs and arrangement were primarily responsible for its appeal, though Foxx could do some sizzling numbers on her own. They continued with "Ask Me" and "Hurt by Love," then switched to Musicor. Their final moderate hit was "(1-2-3-4-5-6-7) Count the Days" in 1967 for Dynamo, which reached number 17 on the R&B charts. Inez Foxx had a solid LP on her own for Volt in 1969, At Memphis. But her solo songs for the label didn't generate much interest in the early and mid-'70s. James Taylor and Carly Simon later did a cover of "Mockingbird."
