Young Gun Silver Fox comprises Shawn Lee (Young Gun) and Andy Platts (Silver Fox), artists who have already earned their stripes in the music industry. Producer and multi-instrumentalist Lee has had various bands, worked with stars including Jeff Buckley, Kelis and Amy Winehouse, and created scores for films (Ocean’s Thirteen, Confessions of a Shopaholic) and TV series (CSI: Miami, Lost, Desperate Housewives). The younger Platts was primarily known as the lead-singer of funk-soul band Mamas Gun, described by the leading British magazine Uncut as a genuine stage hit and a 'masterclass in blue-eyed bubblegum soul’.

The duo's sound is easily described as laid back 1970s West Coast pop with a hint of the 80s, paying tribute to legendary bands such as The Eagles, The Doobie Brothers and Hall & Oates. The voices and talents of Lee and Platts seem to be made for one another. This results in enchanting melodies, catchy song structures and stunning harmonies. A sound with soul which, despite all the references, is entirely authentic. This is all beautifully produced with the rich and full sound characteristic of the top studios in Los Angeles in the 1970s.
