We know many of you have been anxious to hear something from our upcoming record, and now we have the perfect opportunity for you to get a little taste: “Talkin’ ‘Bout Love” is featured in the launch video for an exciting new social experiment, the Love On Revolution. The Love On Revolution uses the power of the Internet to encourage people to pay acts of kindness forward and track the ripple effects they create. When Love On Revolution founder Johnny Ronca approached us with the idea and asked to use our song to help get it off the ground, we knew this was something we wanted to support. Watch the video to get a little taste of a new, yet-to-be-released ROXY ROCA track and then go sign up to be part of the Love On Revolution!

We hope you enjoy our new lyric video for “Back Door Santa,” the b-side to our Christmas single, “It Ain’t Christmas Without You.” We had a blast a few weeks ago recording this at Clockright Studio in Austin with our good friend Jason Richard.
It’s available now, packaged as a CD Single Christmas Card featuring ROXY ROCA’s original song “It Ain’t Christmas Without You” (the nice side) along with this newly recorded version of “Back Door Santa” (the naughty side).

Many thanks to Emily Stanfield from iLevel 360 for the great review of our show last weekend at Lowe Mill in Huntsville, AL as part of the annual Concerts on the Dock summer music series. Here’s a little bit of what she had to say:
iLevel 360 had the opportunity to attend the live performance of Roxy Roca. The concert was amazing! It was as if someone told him to sing like his life depended on it! That is how I would describe the soulful performance Roxy Roca front man Taye Cannon gave last night. The “house” at Lowes Mill was packed with locals, family and friends who are officially in love with the band.
