TERRE HAUTE —
The next step for singer-songwriter Roxie Randle is a single with the attitude and power to crack radio airplay lists.
She’s got it.
The Nashville, Tenn., performer who grew up in Hutsonville, Ill., just released her latest single, “Everything I’m Not,” with all the right ingredients.
Its lyric packs the bitter hurt of a jilted lover. Randle’s muscular yet all-feminine vocal ranges from a soft-spoken narrative to a soaring chorus, warning, “Sooner or later, you’re gonna miss me; you’re gonna hate her; baby, don’t you know not everything’s what it seems.” The message gets across clearly, in catchy fashion.
Her singing rolls over well-delivered electric guitar riffs and a solid rhythm section. Indie radio stations with an ear for adult-contemporary and contemporary country music would be wise to add Randle’s latest to their cycle of songs.
