Ain't Nothing Fancy
Austin, TX-based ROXY ROCA is a powerhouse of southern soul, stirring up your spirit with a gritty and infectious sound influenced as much by soul and funk legends of the late 60s like James Brown, Joe Tex, and Al Green as by early rock n roll pioneers like Chubby Checker and Little Richard and early 70s psychedelic funk rockers like War and Sly and the Family Stone. Formed in late 2010, the band quickly developed a reputation for getting a room on its feet and in motion with a sound that has been described as Dynamite Texas Soul -- driving, horn-powered southern soul with a certain explosiveness and swagger that is distinctly Texas. The band went into EAR Studio with producer Lars Goransson (The Relatives, Jewel Brown, Kool & Together, Cornell Dupree, Little Joe Washington) to capture that energy the old-fashioned way: nine musicians in a room together, recording live, straight to tape. That whirlwind, four-day session resulted in ROXY ROCAs Stag Records debut, "Aint Nothin Fancy"
