WHO ARE ROXY5000?
ROXY5000 is a music project that was created in late 2009 by the man they call “ROXY PRINCE.” In June 2010 Roxy5000 released their first official single featuring the legendary Omar and Shawn Lee entitled "When Love Takes Over" and broke new grounds by achieving huge global airplay on FM/NET radio via the social network Facebook racking up thousands and thousands of radio plays to date.
ROXY5000 THE ALBUM!
ROXY5000’s debut album “FAN PAGE” is a concept album focused around the life of today written in a way that people in the world can relate that will cover genres from Funk/Pop/Soul/Jazz/Blues and Reggae.
The album gives reference to many social points often outlining the need to keep a positive focus in life. Life can be tough at times and ROXY5000 believe music can be a great healer if done in a positive way so always try to incorporate real life into the stories they are telling.
Even though sometimes done in a pure and very honest way, ROXY5000 still manage to give us their philosophy with an edgy and current vibe.
ROXY5000 “The Album” will feature various artists and musicians from around the globe.
ROXY5000 are very excited to be having guest Features on “FAN PAGE” from the likes of “Miss Prince” -who has smashed it up with the likes of “Pras, Simply Red and Kelly Rowland” The Fantastic “ Terri Walker” kicking it hard in NY in "Blu-Roc" With "Damon Dash and Ski-Beatz" “Mick Conroy from “Modern English” –the writer of the USA smash hit “I melt with you” to the UK Soul Man himself “Omar” who has fans of the likes of “Stevie Wonder”.

ROXY5000 would also like to announce that they will be doing "one" cover on the album. The cover will be the smash hit "I MELT WITH YOU" by Mick Conroy from Modern English.
What's even more exciting for ROXY5000 is that many many people have covered "I melt with you" including just recently "Jason mraz", but never ever in all the years that the song has become a USA ground breaker have any of Modern English appeared on a cover, until now. ROXY5000 will be the 1st band to feature a member of Modern English on their cover version of "I melt with you". Welcome on board Mick Conroy!!!! Hello America.
ROXY5000 have just released their second single, a duet with the wonderful "TERRI WALKER" (Blu-Roc-Damon Dash) entitled "Never Going Back" Feat Terri Walker which again takes the listener on a positive musical journey.
