Growing up in Ohio, Knox’s whole existence before he ever wrote a song was basketball, soundtracked by artists such as Fall Out Boy, Panic! At the Disco, All-American Rejects, and Ed Sheeran. The summer before he started at Ohio University, Knox finally picked up a guitar. He learned everything in a few months, through YouTube videos. Knox began playing open mic nights and by his sophomore year, his musical ambitions were so all-consuming that he dropped out of school, moved in with his grandma and saved up money to move to Nashville. He made the leap in January 2019. Knox used covid isolation to work on his craft. The focus paid off: his songs caught the attention of John Harvie, who placed a few on his album. Knox signed a publishing deal in 2022 but was struck with the urge to record some songs he had been working on. The result was How to Lose a Girl in 7 Songs, Knox’s debut EP, released this past February. With his own songs ready, he now looked to build a fanbase. Knox filmed TikToks featuring his song “Sneakers”, and 1 amassed nearly 2 million views overnight. “Sneakers” now has over 23 million streams. Knox has since began touring, opening for the Band Camino & Boys Like Girls. “I’m 6 states away from home and there’s a thousand people in the audience that are singing the song that I wrote with my friends in my bedroom. That’s when it gets you, when you see people connecting to something that I made with my best friends. It’s the most unreal feeling in the world.”
