Hoax Funeral is a UK based Anglo-American alt-folk band fronted by American singer- songwriter- guitarist Anjy Hall and playing a unique hybrid of folk (with influences from both sides of the Atlantic), indie and Americana Formed in 2005 when Hall and British multi-instrumentalist - songwriter Chris Gregory began playing sets at folk clubs in the villages around Stamford in the English East Midlands the band added Al Jordan (fingerpicked guitar, banjo, octave mandola, concertina) and Cherish Burk (percussion, keyboards, melodica, mandolin) in late 2005. A well received demo featuring 7 tracks recorded in the band’s home studio received airplay in the US, Australia, Italy and on BBC Radio One’s One Music with Rob Da Bank was released late in 2005 and followed by a couple of home-recorded EPs in 2006. Hall provided guest vocals on the track “Leaving Dusty Footprints” by another East Midlands band, Pacific Ocean Fire on their critically acclaimed album “From the Station To The Church We Are Under The Same Stars”, meanwhile Hoax Funeral was playlisted by Folk Radio UK and appeared at Stamford’s Riverside Festival and in numerous other gigs. The debut album “Pour Away The Ocean” was released in 2007 on the band’s own Scared Crow label. Recorded at the Sick Room studio in Norfolk, UK between August 2006 and March 2007 and produced by Magoo’s Owen Turner (whose previous production credits include Broken Family Band, Rory McVicar and Bearsuit as well as Magoo) the album features 13 original songs incorporating a wide range of styles and instruments culled from music shops and junk yards alike. Since it's release the band has been featured on National radio (BBC Radio 2's Radlciffe and Maconie show) and on numerous local and college stations around the world Comparisons with other artists have been plentiful but none quite captures the uniqueness of Hoax Funeral’s sound.
