ROXANNE

Roxanne believes Music Sets the Soul in Flight.

Famed songwriter George Fischoff dubbed singer/songwriter Roxanne, Freedove, a symbolic name meant to capture the love-based spirit of her music as much as her engaging personality. There is also another symbolic aspect of Roxanne¹s music embedded in her first name: Roxanne is said to
mean dawn of a new day, or a new beginning."

Born in Luisianna, we are lucky to have Roxanne here with us Tri-State!

Growing up in New Orleans. I was shy and introverted, but in the privacy of my room, another world opened up for me through music, she says. Roxanne says she became obsessed with music at nine years old, calling it a singing addiction,drinking in the artistry of the legends in soul, rock, gospel and contemporary music. She wold sing along with Aretha Franklin, Denise Williams and Teena Marie at home, while developing a profound inner love for gospel music singing in the choir at church.

Roxanne began working with Gaynielle and
Cyrille Neville and performing with a host of accomplished musicians including Renard Poche, Raymond Weber and George Porter.

Larry Flick of Billboard Magazine exclaimed, The wheels are turning for this intriguing artist.

AMEE

Amee is a riveting performer whose deeply soulful but always hard-hitting R&B style is capable of rocking a Southern stadium or heating up New York City nightspot.

After graduating from East Carolina University with a Bachelor of Music in Music Theater, Amee cemented her reputation with a range of gigs in the South, where she entertained at a command performance for President George Bush Sr., brought thousands to their feet at Charlotte Hornets games, and took the stage with R&B hit makers such as Percy Sledge, the Trammps, and Sister Sledge.

Amee then made her way north to pursue her career and immediately found herself in demand from Atlantic City to the Big Apple. She moved quickly from the Miss America pageant to the studios of New York, recording as a backup singer and doing session work for commercial clients including VH1 and others. With a blend of big-city energy, down-home roots and a rock 'n' roll heart, Amee continues to thrill audiences all over the U.S. by delivering uncompromising performances.

 CHRIS

From a roadside blues bar in Ohio, to the spotlight of network television, and nearly everywhere in between, the voice of singer/songwriter/guitarist Chris has left an indelible impression. After a severe knee injury ended his hopes of a professional football career, Chris was left empty and searching for a purpose and a passion. Music would be his saving grace. Chris found his way to the stage of an open mic blues jam where he sang a Muddy Waters song with bourbon in hand, eyes closed, and a broken heart, and found the catharsis to save himself and to share that poignant emotion with his audience. For the next 16 years, Chris honed his craft in blues bands, touring rock bands, and as a solo/acoustic act, personally selling over 16,000 of his own CDs!

He has opened up for acts as diverse as Green Day, Collective Soul, Sugar Ray, Matchbox 20, Hootie and the Blowfish, Live, Fuel, The Smithereens, Warren Zevon, Todd Rundgren, Kansas, Blue Oyster Cult, Jewel, and Edwin McCain to name a few. He was hand picked by the legendary Ashford and Simpson to perform the male lead “Rootie” in the workshop of their musical “Pipes” and to sing at the birthday party for one of his idols, Michael McDonald. Chris was also a featured singer on last summer’s NBC hit show “The Singing Bee”. Chris has previously appeared on national television as a semi-finalist on “Star Search“, as a featured guest on “Last Call with Carson Daly“, “The Early Show“, and the WB’s “Daily Buzz”. Chris’s voice can be heard on the Top 10 Billboard charting “Kidzbop” CD’s, Applebee’s and Canadian Club radio ads, and the new Pokemon theme song “Diamond and Pearl”.
