Roxy lives with her family in the Lanark Highlands. A few years ago, she started working with another established Ottawa musician, the pianist Peter Brown, now also a Lanark Highlands resident. Their jazzy duo – Peter on piano/vocals and Roxy on vocals/snare drum/flute – is adept at creating a full sound with just two musicians, while covering swinging and funky jazz, blues, and originals.
