With a rich range of musical influences spanning from rock and roots legends Hendrix and Marley to Red Hot Chili Peppers and Led Zeppelin Roxolydian sounds like a culmination of raging rock rhythms and soulful, funk laden sounds.
Roxolydian is led by vocalist/guitarist Deekah Wyatt. Showcasing her gut wrenching, soulful wails and all out roaring vocals the band consists of tag-teaming guitar players Anter Blackbird and Chris Costis; bass player Jon Leavell and high energy technician Eric Childress, II on drums, Roxolydian is funky prog-rock soul.

Roxolydian offers the rock/soul hybrid you've been missing in your life, whether you're aware of that fact or not. Lead singer/guitarist Deekah Wyatt is a force to be reckoned with. She can wail at the top of her lungs like Sleater-Kinney's Corin Tucker, and bring soul to the mix like Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard. And the rest of the band isn't too shabby either. They just added a third guitarist to the mix so that two can play off each other while Wyatt handles the rhythm. - Mike McGonigal, Metro Times Detroit
