Their family was passionate about music all along, but once the two sisters got a lot of support from their parents things took off even further. They received their musical instruments at a young age – giving them the confidence to take continue developing their gifts. Roxy plays drums only, but she likes several music genres, including post-grunge, hard rock, glam metal, and heavy metal.

Roxy and her sister Maxine came together with Chris Doliber and Bret Kaiser to form a band called Madam X. However, Roxy’s stay in the band was never long-lived, and she left in 1986 to join the band Vixen. She stayed in the band for about six years before the band stopped performing.
