BIOGRAPHY

Born in Louisiana, and having the privilege of playing in a lot of the local clubs, Rox has honed her skills, and more than ready to take on the world with a new attitude. 

Roxanne Daigre (BMI) has been writing and performing her original songs professionally for over 25 years. And having the opportunity of producing with the late great Harold Cowart in 2003 kicked off a great year. 

Rox's unique, "Classic blues rock meets Alternative" style of getting people out of their seats and onto the dance floor is a direct reflection of the hard work and determination 
that shines through the music she creates. Melodies that are as easy to listen to as it is hard to categorize Rox's fresh-sounding style of performing marks the place where words and music collide, bringing about an appreciation of the vast musical spectrum. Rox's talent exceed any genre. 

Passion for the music, and performing for friends, and fans make it all worth a new song. -Rox Daigre-

“Keep an eye out for Rox and her new CD. If given the opportunity to witness her live performance, jump at the chance. For more on Rox Daigre visit her web site for 
tour calendar and samples of her music: www.roxdaigre.com. Something else you should know about Rox on her CD she recorded and released in 2003 (before Katrina)
it was call "Hurricane". Howard Cowart, bass player who wrote the famous bass line for John Fred & His Playboys, song titled "Judy in Disguise", he played bass on six 
out of fifteen songs on her CD. She recorded that entire CD in his studio (Bluff Road Studio).”

“These days Rox is making her mark not only in Louisiana or Texas, but also overseas with a strong following in the Netherlands and Ireland Donegal, Ireland on a
show called "The Hits Factor" with Caroline Marie McDermott on Highland Radio from 2-4 every Friday (Central Time). Given today’s eMusic, iTunes and Amazon,
her reach and exposure is greater. David Mobley with The Songwriters Webcast broadcasting Indie Artist 24/7 on www.thedavidmobleyshow.com and HotMix 106fm
in Dallas/Ft. Worth promotes her music regularly and she is due to return for a sixth tour of duty to the Brazos River Float Fest in Millsap, Texas. After her first year
performing there, organizers promptly requested her return and she has obliged annually.”

“At the impressionable age of eight, she was handed her first acoustic guitar, an instrument she has since never put down. Prior to that Rox took piano lessons
from family members and was exposed to the sounds of the delta by one of her uncles, an original Cajun Fiddler. Over Rox’s twenty years in the business she takes
pride in the fact that some twenty-two youngsters learned guitar under her tutelage. She remains fascinated at the fact that the young students were able to pick up
the instrument so quickly and had an appreciation of the music from the 1970’s and 80’s. Rox wants to bring back those older tunes to today’s audience with a spin
only she can give.”

“The late Stevie Ray Vaughn was a big influence on Rox. “I just loved the way he played his guitar. I want to be able to change guitar strings during a song just
like he did on stage.” She was referring to a 1989 performance of “Look At Little Sister” where he switched electric guitars on stage in the middle of the song
without missing a beat. Rox goes on to say that in addition to Stevie Ray, another artist has impacted her music. Linda Perry of 4 Non Blondes is that singer/songwriter.
In a way Rox emulates the sound of Perry when you listen to one of her top reaching musical numbers “Traffic Jam” from a few years past.”

“Caught up with Roxanne Daigre (aka Rox) late on a Friday evening as thunderstorms rolled in on Kinder, Louisiana, just an hour and a half from her hometown of
Bunkie, LA. Kinder is now where Rox calls home. Thunder and lightning as a backdrop for this interview seemed apropos as Rox hits it hard these days with her
southern Louisiana flavored rock blues. As we settled in, Rox, a 44-year old singer and songwriter opened up about her early years surrounded by the regions music.

“As far as potential is concerned, few groups have the leaps and bounds possessed by the acoustic rock and blues group Atomic Pilot. This band hails from
Kinder, Louisiana and has played in endless local shows. Lead singer and lyricist Rox Daigre has been performing for about twenty-five years, and began working
with drummer Gary James eleven years ago. Atomic Pilot was formed in 2001 and has been performing ever since. Most of their music is available online, where
it is viewed by a large number of listeners. On their Reverbnation profile alone, Rox and Atomic Pilot have 1,655 fans, 3,211 song plays, and 216 video plays. In
layman’s terms: they’re branching out and gaining popularity. The music is an interesting mix, with rhythms and melodies of different tones that blend together.
It is simple, but catchy and appealing. I found myself bobbing my head in time with the beat. The band seems to be well together, but informal as well, which makes
tuning in...”
