Roxy Epoxy burst onto the music scene in 2000 with Portland, Oregon synth punkers, The Epoxies. Never having been in a band before, she put her nerves to the test. She decided it was time to finally get on stage and never turned back.
I just wanted to try something that intimidated me and play some local shows. I ended up touring the world.
The Epoxies released their debut album with local label Dirtnap Records to much underground acclaim. Endless touring and word of mouth about Roxys tireless stage presence landed The Epoxies follow up record, Stop the Future, on punk kingpin label Fat Wreck Chords. The bands influence and Roxys unique vocal stylings and stage persona reached far and wide. Roxy Epoxy has been compared with admired artists such as Chrissie Hynde, Siouxsie Sioux, Lene Lovich and even a young Leonard Graves (Dickies).
While the Epoxies toured and recorded extensively, Roxy continued to write songs and put them aside. She also tried her had at writing for Razorcake Magazine and started her highly influential radio show, Roxys Ego Hour at KPSU radio.
At the end of 2007, the Epoxies decided to call it quits, but Roxy wasnt finished yet. It was time for Roxy to pull her own songs out of hiding and start fresh. She began writing new songs and found talented musicians to follow her into the studio. The result was Roxy Epoxy and The Rebound. Their debut album, Bandaids On Bullet Holes, presents the next logical step for a post Epoxies world. The mood is darker. The guitar is crisper. The angles are sharper. One fellow local musician has been overheard to say that the material is even better than the defunct Epoxies.
