Roxanne began singing Christian music at a young age. She had her first media experience at the age of eight on the TV show Gospel Echoes singing harmony with her duo partner.

After her debut she was asked to be a regular participant as a soloist.

By fourteen years of age she was being asked to sing at many venues.  She was asked to join a southern gospel music group called the Masters’.  They became regular participants on the Canadian syndicated television program called Gospel Singin’ Time. During this time period, Roxanne toured with The Masters throughout Canada and the United States. Roxanne has shared the platforms with many well-loved artists such as Buck Owens, George Jones, Janet Paschal, Stella Parton and many known Christian Music Artists

 

She recorded her very first album in Nashville Tennessee at Superior Sound Studios.  The Oak Ridge boys, Dwayne Allen and Joe Bonsall produced this album called, “Let My Light Shine” there.  Following the recording of this album, Roxanne appeared on the Grand Ole Opry’.  The Masters became standing members of the Opry’ North in Canada with a program similar to the famous Grand Ole Opry’.  She also joined the travelling Opry’ Show featuring many great acts such as Minnie Pearl, Grampa Jones, The Kendalls, which featured many well-known Country music entertainers.

 

On the Canadian home front, the Masters were awarded Favorite Mixed Group of the Year by the Canadian Gospel Music Association.  They appeared on many television programs such as 100 Huntley Street, The Tommy Hunter Show, The Jerry Lewis Telethon, George Hamilton IV Country Music Show.  The group members changed after a period of time and Roxanne, Keith and Ken Deyo formed, The Revised Edition.  The band disbanded in 1986 and Roxanne became a Solo artist.  Since then and including the years prior Roxanne won several awards including Female Vocalist of the Year, 5x, from the Canadian Gospel Music Association and the Maja awards.  She has also won several awards for her song writing skills and nominations internationally for female vocalist of the year.

 

In 2001, Roxanne and a committee formed a charity called Second Chance Ministries.  Concerts and musical instruments would be donated to churches to help further the gospel. That ministry still continues and currently open to doing fundraisers to help not only churches but charities that need support such as feeding/clothing the homeless, and to those need help financially.

 

In 2007 she began to travel internationally.  One of her favourite memories was in Trinidad where she had the privilege of singing her song she wrote called, It Was Your Cross, at the ceremony for the placement of a cross on a church there. She performed in 2010 at the Havelock Jamboree. In 2011 she was signed to the Mosrite Music Label shared with her music partner by Mark Moseley in Nashville. To date Roxanne continues to sing and write all kinds of music and creates  music videos as well,  She is a  worship leader at her local church, and plays the keyboard, mandolin and guitar. She enjoys singing with her husband with their band called Phoxy Music.  They are fluent musically in Blues, Jazz, Folk and Gospel Music and perform in many different local settings. Roxanne also now sings with The Daughters of the King.  A female trio with close rich harmonies. Her favourite scripture verse since she was a child is Psalm 46:10, “Be still and Know that I am God”. She is still standing on that promise and continues to do whatever she can to further the gospel.
