"Erica Fox kicks up the pure romance"” - Theodore P Mahne



Suth'n. Sanga. Soulful. A native of Lafayette, LA, Erica’s talents have been showcased on projects such as Master P’s “504 Boys Goodfellas”, Xbox’s Project Gotham Racer, Sony Motion Picture soundtrack “You Got Served”, and Mattel’s Barbie commercials. She was featured in several SyFy films including “House of Bones” and “Quantum Apocalypse”.  As a recording artist, she worked with such acts as Tank, Jesse Powell, Jon B. and Shai to name a few.
She was a principal singer and gymnast in the Spiderman Rocks show at Universal Studios in California. On the theatrical stage, Erica appeared in The Buddy Holly Story at The Lawrence Welk Resort and toured along with Motown greats Kim Weston and Pat Hodges in Smokey Robinson and Mickey Stevenson’s hit musical, “Sang Sista Sang.” She excited many at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with Motown’s legendary Funk Brothers.

Born in the heart of Acadiana, the spicy culture and music of her hometown carried her throughout her travels. She is deeply appreciative of her Southern heritage and deep Creole roots. This distinctive Bayou influence is infused in her style and is reminiscent of the Zydeco and blues she grew up listening to. Her music is a celebration of all things Southern and the unique people that make up the place she is so proud to call home.

Maison Freetown's Executive Director, Erica Fox honor's Lafayette 102 year old 6888 WW2 veteran 

Maison Freetown’s Erica Melancon Fox was stunned to learn about the battalion of African American women who helped ensure backlogged mail arrived to the front line during World War II – and that a still-living Lafayette native was among its ranks.

In 1944, the 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion was established to clear a multi-year backlog of mail and packages that had built up in Birmingham, England, Paris and Rouen, France while en route to soldiers on the front lines. The women subscribed to the motto, “No Mail, Low Morale,” because of the detrimental impact the backlog was having on soldiers’ spirits.

For your Consideration: Grammy nod for Best R&B Song "I Still Love You" 

I am humbled and honored to have a song be considered for a Grammy nomination in the Category of Best R&B Song. My visual album project, "This is 2020" was released October 24, 2020 and chronicled my personal perspective on the year that changed the world. My song, "I Still Love You" written and performed with my friend and "bigger than life" talent, Timothy Bloom was included on the album as a tribute to my parents who were married for 47 years when my father died unexpectedly in his sleep in 2020. The song is a reminder that love forever remains and knows no bounds. I have loved songwriting since being a small child; recording songs I created on cassette players, mimicking singers I looked up to and dreaming of "becoming a singer" some day. As well, I sat faithfully in front of the tv to watch the Grammy awards for decades imagining hearing my name being called. This recognition is a sweet reminder that anything is possible. I thank God for always showing me life is full of surprises, so enjoy the ride. Out of darkness, can come light!!! To music...I Still Love You very much!!


One thing Louisiana has no shortage of, and that is talent! In every medium from art, cuisine, writing, craft makers or music. The list is endless. Being a singer, I have found a new 'band," if you will and an exciting way to make music with others in various creative spaces. I am honored to collaborate with these amazing people as we have opened a new maker space, Attakapas Collective Outpost. Our cultural co-op highlights artistic individuals and emerging entrepreneurs from Louisiana. We are an artisan led enterprise using our passions to create a positive community. There are books, food, jewelry, art and so much more showcased in our store. So yes, I am still making music but for now it has a slightly different timber!! Check us out at 100 E Vermilion St Suite 170, located on the Atakapas-Ishak Trail.
