The Best New Song Of 1Q 2014: Roxanna's 'Close Your Eyes'

Over the past couple years, I've had the opportunity to write two bios for Canadian vocalist Roxanna, including several phoners. Not only is her heart as big as the sky, but her favorite
entertainers are Olivia Newton-John and Celine Dion. How could I resist such perfect taste?

Rox has just released single "Close Your Eyes," the kind of cloud-bursting power ballad I live for. It takes all of one listen to recognize that this is a wholly hit-worthy song... and what mainstream radio is sorely lacking anymore. At least we're past so much angry hip-hop, only to be supplanted by screechy generic dance beats. Sigh... Nice to know there are still lush, velvet-lined female vocals with messages of hope & inspiration.

And it's right here! To absorb, embrace... and SEE. Wait until you have a look at Roxanna. Beautiful inside and out. Bravo!
