Many thanks to The Record-Journal for their great review of our new album, “Ain’t Nothin’ Fancy.” Here’s what they had to say:
From Austin, TX comes the latest release from soul rockers Roxy Roca entitled “Ain’t Nothin’ Fancy.” It was released back in February through Stag Records and features a sound similar to Fitz And The Tantrums and Vintage Trouble. Their new eleven-song release begins with the funky swing of the title song “Ain’t Nothin’ Fancy (It’s Love)” as the band introduce you to 40 minutes of energetic soul music. The album’s lead single “Love Maker Deville” features the grit of Taye Cannon as he leads his seven-piece band through this high energy smash that will get your feet moving. They bring the tempo down for the slow grind of “I Don’t Wanna Dream No More,” before picking things back up with the wonderful horn section of “Try My Love.” Roxy Roca bring in a little James Brown swing with “Cornbread,” before slowing things down one more time for the passion of “When The Lights Go Down.” The album closes with smooth jazziness of “It’s Your Dream” as Roxy Roca have a bright future laying ahead of them.

Many thanks to Amy Price from Soundcheck Magazine for featuring ROXY ROCA in her review of the Old Settlers Music Festival. Here’s what she had to say:
Roxy Roca nailed their performance with a funky, sensual Southern soul all-out dance jam, so much so that no one cared any more if it was raining or muddy. You couldn’t help but move your body when the lead singer has moves like James Brown and a voice to match.
