Try My Love

Check out our new video for “Try My Love” directed by Josh and Nick Holden from MISHNOON.

“[ROXY ROCA] is a nine-piece powerhouse of southern soul. Fronted by green-eyed soul shouter Taye Cannon and backed up by a crack team of veteran players, this band is the real deal.” —The Vinyl District

About the video…

We shot the video at The Blackheart on a steamy night in September. A picture is worth a thousand words, so we’ll let the video speak for itself, but you can count on seeing ROXY ROCA doing what we do best with the help of some good friends who were kind enough to join the party. Watch for appearances from Elise Avellan (best known for her roles in Grindhouse and Machete) and B-Boy Recon & The Fresh Collection Break Dancers.

None of this would be possible, of course, without the bumpin’ audio track engineered and mixed by Jason Richard at Clockright Studio.


MISHNOON is a film and video production company based out of Austin, TX.  Founded by brothers Nick and Josh Holden, the company is celebrating a sensational year. Their Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis video was chosen as a Top 12 Kickstarter video of 2011, out of 30,000 submitted videos, and SXSW included their The Fleshlife web series in SXSW’s Digital Domain in 2012. Recent projects include behind the scenes coverage of Willie Nelson’s latest music video, a Black Joe Lewis music video, and a commercial shoot for the Vieux Carre seafood market in New Orleans, LA.

    To Ralph Stanfield’s son – I played 4 years of college basketball with Ralph at St. Bernard. I wrote the book “Charley’s Boys” about those years. You have a great day. I didn’t have any trouble picking out which one was his son. I thoroughly enjoyed the song. Very impressive. don laney

    Hey Don! Thanks for the kind words! Good to hear from you. I read Charley’s Boys and it holds a special place in my heart. Those years at St. Bernard were already immortalized in my mind, it was great to hear some first hand accounts! – Taye – Roxy Roca vocalist.
