Roxx Hunter has racked up a lot of miles, in some far away places of the world, headlining festivals and sold-out concerts, playing cultural events, representing the Yukon abroad, to doing time at clubs, coffee houses, churches, and campfires. With a distinct and unique sound, his music has racked up over 100,000 plays online. He's shared the stage with award winning acts and artists, has been seen on national and international TV, is heard on recordings from hard rock to folk, has been seen leading guitar workshops and rock band classes, as well as teaching lessons privately to people from 4 to 74. As a skilled, and versatile, guitarist, bassist, singer, and songwriter, Roxx continues to be in high demand across the North, playing for both local musicians and touring groups, as a hired gun, and delivering his own brand of fiery, polished shows melding world influences, rock and metal vibes, the blues, classical, jazz, flamenco and instrumentals.
Roxx has shared the stage with many Juno award winning musicians and has opened for Grammy nominated and Juno award winning acts. He's been a studio musician, wrote and scored a movie soundtrack, played for sold out musicals, and CD releases, for weddings, funerals, cultural and community events, even a deportation party, featured with a choir, and helped produce a native language CD with kids and elders. When not busy playing as a side man or doing his own festival and club shows, Roxx teaches would be rock stars in group workshops, clinics, and rock band camps, working on elements of music theory, team work, production, and performance, as well as private lessons of all styles, to students from 5 to 75 years of age.
Juno award winner and Maple Blues recipient Brandon Isaak says, "Not just a great guitarist but a very good vocalist with a keen and unique sensibility with his song writing. Look out, this kid is on a mission from God."
And music columnist and reviewer Barry "Jack" Jenkins was quoted as saying, "Roxx Hunter wears very nice pants when he plays guitar. In fact, he's the best-pants-wearing guitarist I've ever seen, playing on a Wednesday night in Whitehorse. And the scarf is a really nice accent."
