Biography

Daxx & Roxane are a ‘full-throttle’ 4 piece rock n’ roll band originating from Switzerland, now based in London (UK).

Citing Led Zeppelin, AC/DC and Mötley Crüe as key influences, it’s no wonder that Kerrang! Magazine has hailed them as “tooth-and-nail, testosterone-powered rock.”. Their philosophy “Rock ’n’ Roll is all about energy. All about creating an adrenaline rush” is reflected in their intense live shows, as anyone who witnessed their storming homecoming gig at the Montreux Jazz Festival would certainly tell you.
The band was also handpicked as main support at HIM’s final UK show in December 2017 at the Camden Roundhouse, which speaks for itself.

Their commitment to writing songs with killer riffs that grab you and refuse to let go, and huge chorus hooks that mark them as instant classics, is reflected in their highly praised debut album, ‘Ticket to Rock’. Their second studio album, rightfully self-titled ‘Daxx & Roxane’, showed the world they have what it takes to continue on the right tracks. Released in the middle of the world’s lockdown, it ended up on many shelves around the globe, from the UK to Japan, from Australia to the USA.

In the past 3 years, they started collaborating with world-known people from the industry. To mention just a few, they worked with Brit Award-winning producer Pedro Ferreira (The Darkness, Meatloaf, The Stereophonics) and legendary Don Airey (Deep Purple) on the single ‘Interstellar’, with the video being exclusively premiered on Planet Rock.

With songs that have collectively spent over 50 weeks on the Planet Rock playlist and a host of 9 and 10 out of 10 album reviews, singles being played all over the world on more than 80 radio stations, both albums have proven being worth a listen.

Hard Rock Hell Mag might just be right in suggesting that, “Daxx & Roxane are on the fast track to Superstardom…”

In 2022, the band released a cover EP called ‘Drop’. This EP was their creative work in between albums. It was a way to exercise the music that inspired them and also to experiment with new recording techniques at their home studio. As an effort to not go for any obvious covers, they worked on more than a 100 songs and ended with these four tracks that really stood out in their style.

2023 is set to be a great new chapter for the band.
Not only they’ve already secured many live shows – from tours to headline festivals, but they are also recording their highly anticipated third album.
