Press

“Being the New York Blues Queen - a title Roxy Perry either adopted or accepted on her 1998 album of the same name – might not be the hardest distinction to claim. But this leather-clad vocalist has the kind of voice and delivery that could save her throne if Gotham did suddenly get flooded with distaff blues singers; her sound is full, smoky, dark, wise, worldly, and genuine. She has a way with a phrase, taking what could be ordinary stories of love among the barflies and selling them with a clever and utterly honest turn of phrase: She's looking for the Whole Dog, you understand, not just a piece of tail. Seldom has the cherished female trophy of commitment sounded so sexy. Perry's voice is just that impressive; it's a rough yet feminine wonder that attempts to carry the tradition of prewar torch singing into the modern age.”

    A child prodigy, Roxy started out fronting swing bands at the famous Glen Island Casino in New Rochelle, New York and performed her first major concert at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California at age 9. In her early teens, she began fronting her own bands. By her late teens, she was working six nights a week with her 10-piece soul band at the Peppermint Lounge on 45th Street and Times Square in New York City. It was there that she was discovered and did her first studio recording as a back-up vocalist. This led to her going on tour for four years with the pop-rock band, Dawn, representing their hits of the time. The band headlined concert tours with Kenny Rogers, The Carpenters, Rare Earth, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Iron Butterfly, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Mike Nesmith, Mark Lindsay and many others. In the ‘80’s an EP was released on Personal Records, produced by Richie Cordell, which was high on the Billboard charts for two months. Roxy launched her blues career in the late ‘80’s, when she quickly became known for her exciting live performances at clubs, concert halls and festivals throughout the U.S. and abroad and won her reputation as “the real deal” through her riveting live performances and highly acclaimed CDs in blues and jazz circles worldwide. In recent years Roxy has appeared on the concert bill with Rod Piazza, Shamekia Copeland, Leon Russell, Marcia Ball, John Mayall, Saphire, Hubert Sumlin, Gatemouth Brown, Koko Taylor, Taj Mahal, the Neville Brothers, Popa Chubby, Derek Trucks, The Black Crowes, Susan Tedeschi, Duke Robillard and a host of others. In 2007, Roxy and her band performed at the renowned Montreux Jazz Festival, where they headlined two stages, including the Lake Geneva Blues Cruise As a recording artist, Roxy has performed, produced and written the material for four highly acclaimed CDs that have been added to classic female Blues artist lists on radio stations throughout the world. They are titled HI HEEL BLUES (Monad Records), ROXY PERRY, NEW YORK BLUES QUEEN (BluePerry Hill Records), BACK IN BLUESVILLE (BluePerry Hill Records), and her most recent CD, IN MY SWEET TIME (BluePerry Hill Records). Many of her original songs appear on compilation blues CDs. Her unique version of HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN appeared on the compilation album, PUBLIC DOMAIN (Purchase Records), which was nominated for a Grammy award. In 2006, BACK IN BLUESVILLE was awarded BEST SELF-PRODUCED CD at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee. Roxy is also featured on a long list of Blues albums as both backup and featured vocalist. Blues legend Roscoe Gordon chose Roxy to sing three part harmonies on his entire last release that aired worldwide. In 2007, Roxy was presented with the prestigious ARTIST OF THE YEAR award by the Westchester Arts Council, New York. In 2009, Roxy Perry was officially recognized and inducted as a GREAT BLUES MUSICIAN, New Yorkin the BLUES HALL OF FAME®. Media recognition over the years has been extensive, notably a cover story and 6-page interview in the international magazine, BLUES ROCKS THE WORLD, and stellar reviews in DOWNBEAT, BLUES REVUE, BLUES MATTERS, and many more. Roxy’s music has been featured on the legendary KING BISCUIT HOUR, and the HOUSE OF BLUES RADIO HOUR hosted by Elwood Blues (Dan Aykroyd). The syndicated radio program, PORTRAITS IN BLUE, which profiles Blues legends and rising stars, produced an hour-long feature on Roxy Perry. This historic documentary airs regularly on NPR stations.
