With roots in rock, jazz, country and gospel, Roxanne Beck is a genre-busting singer and songwriter. A native Arkansan, her career began in Nashville, where she worked as a demo singer, sang back-up on the Grand Ole Opry and was a winner of the Country Music Hall of Fame Vocalist Contest. After a few years, her interest in acting led to a move to New York City, where she continued to develop her distinctive vocal style and became a successful voice-over artist. While living in Manhattan, she wrote and produced her first CD, Garden of Love, and performed at venues from the Bitter End to Town Hall.
Roxanne eventually relocated to Los Angeles and is now the lead singer of City School, a new band whose first album will be completed in early 2014. Garden of Love and her second CD, Comes Love, are available for purchase on her Music page and also at CDBaby.com and iTunes.
Roxanne's TV and film credits include multiple roles on "ILL-ustrated" (VH1), "Doug" (ABC/Nickelodeon), "Pokemon" (the WB) and many other Japanese anime productions (see IMDB.com). Known for her wide range of character voices and accents, Roxanne has voiced bratty tots, precocious teens, sweet ingenues, quirky moms, evil witches, and celebrity impersonations. Her voice-over and jingle work includes Cover Girl, Disney, Dodge, Kroger, Long John Silver's, Saatchi & Saatchi, Nintendo, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, and The Documentary Channel. A trained stage and film actress with over 15 years of experience, Roxanne is a member of SAG, AFTRA and Actors Equity.
Roxanne has joined the ranks of aspiring Hollywood screenwriters, after finishing an MFA in screenwriting at UCLA's prestigious film school in 2014. She was nominated for a HUMANITAS prize for her TV pilot The Intenders, and her feature-length animation script Caterpillarland was awarded the 2011 Oliver's Prize for Best Animated or Family Screenplay by a UCLA student. She is represented by Doug Draizin of Ensemble Entertainment.
