Discovering music at a very early age, Roxanne has been writing and performing her own compositions since the tender age of eight. That was just the beginning of what is destined to be a career of quality and longevity.
An accomplished actress, singer and guitarist, Roxanne is entering a new stage of her career, recording, writing and performing her own songs.
"See The Difference", a wonderful collection of 12 original songs, recorded live, sells consistently at her live performances.
"Cheating", one of Roxanne's own compositions, recently featured on Sydney's Free-To-Air Channel Seven's program, "Home and Away".
In January 1997, Roxanne was presented with the TSA (Tamworth Songwriters' Association) Award for two of her songs, "Little Bit Of You", a song dedicated to her mother, and "See The Difference", the title track of her live album.
In June 1997, two songs, "Many Dreams Later" and "Little Bit Of You" made the national ASAI (Australian Songwriters' Association Inc.) finals, sponsored by Brashes.
One of the talented young artists who has bitten the bullet and taken the first step towards a career in Country Music is Sydney singer, songwriter and singing teacher, Roxanne Kiely.
Music publication, Beat Magazine has described Roxanne's voice as "like Tom Waits without the gravel..", but that doesn't do justice to her sweet, almost ethereal vocals and a very distinctive musical style.
Roxanne wrote both the music and lyrics, as well as arranging all the tracks with the help of Sydney keyboard whiz, Graham Lockwood. Highlights of the CD include "Cheating", "Little Bit Of You", "Magic", and the title track itself.
"Little Bit Of You" was also included on the Outback Music compilation, The Real Australian Country Vol. 5, and Roxanne's material is currently receiving airplay nationally.
A multi-talented performer, she sings in no less than seven languages - Italian, French, Maori, Croation, Cantonese, Japanese and, of course, English, as well as being an accomplished guitarist.
Away from the musical field, Roxanne is becoming an experienced actor, appearing recently in a number of television productions, combining talents on the TV soap "Home And Away" recently with both acting and singing credits.
