To all our Vixen friends and fans...

Moving forward as a band we tip our hat to Van Halen who has two of the most recognizable frontmen in Rock n Roll; Diamond David Lee Roth and the Red Rocker Sammy Hagar!
With our new lead singer, we too will expand upon the Vixen legacy while remaining true to our musical roots.

After much soul searching and many sleepless nights, I have decided that
its time for me to step aside and let Roxy and Share pursue their vision for
the future of Vixen. Vixen will always have a very special place in my heart
and I am incredibly grateful to have been a part of it. I would like to thank
everyone for the amazing support over the years, and as Roxy and Share
continue to keep the heart and soul of Vixen alive and well and I continue
on my path, your continued support to all would be greatly appreciated.
Love, Janet
