Fenix TX Biography
Also known as Riverfenix, this Houston-based group consists of singer/guitarists Willie and Damon, bassist Adam and drummer Donnie. Riverfenix formed in 1995 but due to a shifting lineup didn't play or write much until the following year. 1997 saw the group play on the "Mullets Across America Tour" that also included other pop-punk groups like Home Grown, Cousin Oliver and the Hippos. This led to a connection with Drive-Thru Records, and that summer the group recorded their self-titled debut album for the label. They also appeared on a Duran Duran tribute album, and their rendition of "Ordinary World" was impressive enough to garner Riverfenix heavy airplay on several modern rock radio stations across the US, which in turn led to tours with Less Than Jake, the Suicide Machines and Blink 182. 1999 saw the group change their name to Fenix TX, earn a spot on Vans' Warped tour, and release their second full-length album.
