About Roxanne Potvin

Canadian guitarist, vocalist, and singer/songwriter Roxanne Potvin was born in 1982 in Regina, Saskatchewan. The young Potvin had a revelatory moment after seeing an equally young Jonny Lang on TV, and she became enamored with American blues and blues-rock. From studying Lang, she discovered the music of B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and dozens of others, and she took it from there. Potvin cites the guitar stylings of Freddie King as a prime guitar influence and cites Dinah Washington for being a vocal inspiration. She released her debut, Careless Loving, in 2003, followed by The Way It Feels in 2006, Time Bomb (with Sue Foley and Deborah Coleman) in 2007, No Love for the Poisonous in 2008, and Play in 2011. ~ Richard J.
