Work as a nurse confirmed the power of music to Toronto-based singer/songwriter Roxanna. She is now grabbing real success in her new career, via debut album Exotica. The first single, "Close Your Eyes", (originally written for Celine Dion) recently hit #25 on the US AC charts. Latin and world music flourishes are audible in her adult pop-oriented style. The album features the production work of Mark Portmann, known for working with Michael Buble and Barbara Streisand. There is a lush and cinematic feel to the sound, one that should lend itself to radio play here. Add striking beauty to her strong vocals and you have the recipe for real success for Roxanna. She launched the album with an industry showcase in Toronto earlier this week.
