Roxie Watson: News



Help Us Record Our Second CD! - September 14, 2011

Dear Roxie Watson Friends,

We've been talking about it for what seems like forever, and our project is finally up on Kickstarter!  The clock is ticking ... we have only 29 days to meet our fundraising goal, but with your help, we'll be able to meet our goal and complete our second album.  We've got a whole stack of new, original "alterna-grass" songs that we've been testing out on YOU at our shows, and we greatly appreciate your enthusiastic response!  So ...  now we're ready to head into the studio and record them, and we invite you to be a part of this adventure.  To do that, just go to our Kickstarter page, watch the video, and select the Kickstarter pledge that's comfortable for you. You'll not only help us record our next album, you'll be the first to get your orders in for the new CD and receive some special thank you gifts along the way. Please feel free to share this with friends and help us spread the word as well.

Thanks so much for your support!

Cheers - Lenny, Beth, Linda, Sonia & Becky


Our newest co-writer! - January 20, 2011

We'd just like to once again thank our songwriting/story contest winner, Jim Baskett, for sending in the wonderful letter he wrote to his grandsons. We had a great time turning his story into the song, "Milestones," and playing it for him and his family along with everyone else at our December show at Eddie's. It was a sweet moment we won't soon forget.

Thanks again to everyone who shared your stories with us!

Tell Roxie Watson Your True Story! - September 22, 2010

We'd like to thank all of the folks that have contacted us since the release of our CD, "True Stories", to share how Roxie Watson’s music has touched them. Some say that a particular song hits so close to home that it seems like it was written about them, while others seem to connect through the songs with special events in their lives. All of us at Roxie Watson appreciate all of the people who have listened to our stories and taken the time to tell us theirs. We couldn’t think of a better way to express our appreciation of these stories and the tellers than to turn one of these tales into a song. So that’s what we are going to do!

We are announcing a “Tell Roxie Watson Your True Story” extravaganza. Beginning September 22nd, you can submit your true story to us at The email address will be available for submissions until October 15th. Roxie Watson will read all of the stories and narrow them down to three contenders. The three finalists will be announced the week of November 18th and will receive passes to the Roxie Watson show at Eddie’s Attic on December 11, 2010. The band will choose one of those final three stories and turn it into a brand new, alterna-grass song! The person submitting the chosen story will be given a songwriting credit and invited to attend the debut performance!

We are looking for a true story that would make a great song. Be as concise as possible, but don’t be afraid to turn on your creative juices. The story can be funny, sad, silly, goofy, tragic — anything at all. The story doesn’t have to relate to Roxie Watson – it just needs to be a story that comes from your life.

So, here are the details:

Submit your true story to the email address between September 22nd and October 15th. The three finalists will be announced the week of November 18th, and the winner will be announced the week of December 11th. The finalists and the winner get passes to the December 11, 2010, show at Eddie’s Attic for the debut of the “Tell Roxie Watson Your True Story” extravaganza song. Hopefully, the song will have a shorter title by then!

We look forward to hearing YOUR true stories!
