Meet Parthenon Huxley

Parthenon Huxley (P. Hux) Bio

Parthenon Huxley's nine studio albums are packed with hooky, meaningful songs featuring his "gold dust voice" [Mojo Magazine] and a curio cabinet's worth of cool guitar sounds. His albums Sunny Nights, P. Hux "Deluxe”, Homemade Spaceship and Thank You Bethesda all received Album of the Year awards. Hux's first single, "Buddha, Buddha," caused Rolling Stone to gush, "You could land a marlin with these hooks!" I Loved Everything" from Purgatory Falls climbed to #1 on Rolling Stone's Exclusive Download Chart. A recent remark from a fan on Facebook hit it right on the head --"I don't recall ever hearing a bad song by Parthenon Huxley."

While recording Purgatory Falls in 1998, Hux was asked to audition for ELO Part II, a successor band featuring ELO members Bev Bevan, Kelly Groucutt, Mik Kaminski and Lou Clark  and American singer/keyboardist Eric Troyer. Hux got the gig and before long had performed in Chile, Russia, Dubai, Guatemala, El Salvador, Argentina, Ukraine, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Poland, Ecuador, Mexico and of course all over the UK and USA. Now called The Orchestra, the band continues to tour the world.

Hux is primarily a recording artist but has made his mark as a producer and collaborator. In 1993 Hux teamed with Mark Everett of eels, when Everett was a solo artist known as E. Their first collaboration ("Hello Cruel World") became a Top Ten Alternative hit. Hux scored again with Kyle Vincent when their song "Wake Me Up (When The World's Worth Waking Up For)" hit number one in several markets and set a record for "bubbling under" the Billboard Hot 100. Hux has collaborated with Foreigner’s Mick Jones, McCartney guitarist Rusty Anderson, Mick Jagger guitarist Stevie Salas, Canadian chanteuse Sass Jordan, Canadian Idol winner Kalan Porter, Go-Go's drummer Gina Schock, Chicago Transit Authority's Robert Lamm and many more.

His latest studio album, As Good As Advertised, released in 2023, may be his best yet. American Songwriter Magazine concluded “As Good as Advertised (is) yet another triumph in a career that makes the quest for perfection a constant standard.”
