The band lays down beats that are sure to set the dance floor on fire; making it easy for Roxy, the five-foot fire cracker of funk to melt your heart. She means what she says. The vocal powerhouse delivers soulful, straight from the heart, tales of love won and lost that are sure to keep you dancing all the way home.
Starting in 2012, Roxy & TUSS have traveled around Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, venturing further into Ontario and Quebec on their tour last spring. In July 2014, they preformed at the Halifax TD Jazz Festival and won the Galaxie Rising star award, which made it possible for them to complete their debut album "Don't You Know?", featuring their sensational single "Puppet". The album was produced by award winning musician and songwriter Erin Costelo, recorded at the Echo Chamber (Halifax, NS) with Charles Austin and mixed with Erin Costelo and Thomas Stajcer at New Scotland Yard (Halifax, NS). Recently, the group has won Nova Scotia Music awards for "urban recording of the year" and "new artist recording of the year" as well as Halifax's the Coast gold award for "best Rn'B band".
Bringing an authentic yet refreshing take on the music of yesterday, Roxy & TUSS continue to preach the message that it's time to get up and get down with the Soul Sound! Preforming mostly original material, the group throws in timeless hits and lost gems for the funk fanatics in the crowd.
