"No Candy Coated Pill"

"This is no the candy coated pill, that once the flavors wears away, you’re left with the bitter middle. This is real and revealing. Showing you more with every listen, earning permanence in your playlist." - Zachary C. Tiller, On-Air Personality/Production KIWR 89.7 The River

"Ms. Moxie Album Review by Jay Nunly"

“If you are looking for auto tune, a pop radio friendly hook, or the lowest common denominator you do not want the new release from Ms. Moxie. Yes, the vocalist is smoking hot like so many female vocalists. The difference here is that she can sing. Alixcia’s vocal performance is the main attraction on an album full of attractions. She can range from girl next door sweet to soul vixen at a moment’s notice and she gives you that and more as the album rolls along. The album and the artist transcend genre. It will depend on the listener’s own perception. The album is funk/soul for sure, but there are overtones and undertones of folk, jazz, rock, pop, and blues.

Ms. Moxie wastes no time on the album. The first track is the best track. “Break You Off” features the aforementioned vocal gymnastics right out of the gate. The song craft is of an exceptional nature. It goes beyond the usual verse-chorus-verse construction. The lyrical content gives a clear vision of a sweet lovesick pain that makes you wish she was singing about you. Musicianship throughout the album is rock solid and not once does anyone go too far, too fast, or too stupid. There is an elegance and subtlety that is far too rare with current music. The second track “Something Special” is a slower tempo, a cooler emotion, and it rolls around in a blues tinged funk that just plain grooves. Track three “Already Rollin’” keeps you cool and grooving and is the silkiest and smoothest cut on the album. It is also the greatest example of musicians beating the temptation to overplay or give you some ego driven, overwrought garbage. They lay in the cut and allow the understated energy of the song itself guide them. The organ solo is particularly exceptional. The fourth song “Move On” will remind you of Sheryl Crow’s “Tuesday Night Music Club” days. It will also remind you that simplicity is sometimes the real genius behind a good song. “Bring Me the Barrel” exhibits how a truly talented vocalist can exhibit anger and disgust without screaming. There is a sinister element to the song that is both a pleasant surprise and makes it the most emotionally interesting song on the album. “Coming Around” finishes the album with a classy ballad that contains the warmth every person on Earth wants to feel coming from another human being. It does this without being the musical equivalent of cotton candy or baby formula.

If you are a fan of quality you want Ms. Moxie. If you are tired of computer generated, machine performed, throwaway music, you will get sweet relief from Ms. Moxie. If you want something that is simply a good listen, you want Ms. Moxie. After you listen to the album you will want more.” - Jay Nunley, Programming Consultant/Media Critic

""Break You Off""

"Break You Off is a pop-funk jam that leaves nothing to imagination, both lyrically and musically. Wrapped in a danceable funky confection of soul-drenched grooves is the story of a woman who knows what she wants, and dares tell us how she wants it. Thankfully, for men and women alike, this steamy track has something for everyone’s naughty side on and off the dancefloor" - Tony Moton, Award-winning music critic,

"Deeper Shade of Soul"

“Ms. Moxie takes you on a cool trip to a deeper shade of soul and keeps you groovin’ all the way” - Hell Belle of Hell Belle Happy Hour, Rockstars Glued Radio


Still working on that hot first release.



Born and raised in a little town outside Omaha where the quality of a handshake is judged, Nebraskan-born singer Alixcia, nicknamed Ms. Moxie spent her youth listening to Motown and Stax records. This is how she learned the necessity of the groove, weaving her lyrics and melodies in and around the funk. Her unique juxtaposition of vocals and bass sparked the origin of music that bears a fresh and authentic sound.

Backed by a 9 piece band, the real treat is Moxie's voice and her saucy delivery of smart and sexy lyrics. Her nickname is spot on: this woman has moxie and lots of it. Her vocal performances are bold and engaging, courageous and cheeky. You get the feeling that if Ms. Moxie wants something, she's going to get it. And right now she wants you to get up and dance!
