Mixing melodious pop inspirations with artful visions of choice rock and roll, the Boxers eventually deliver distinctly styled designs adjoined by their message-full lyrics. Their music expresses their main inspirations, going in the symbolic rock masterpieces of David Bowie towards the visionary inflections from the Who. Via Eugene, OR, the Boxers produced in 1999 with a set lineup constituted of Ian Edwards (vocals), Tyrone Barnett (bass, electric guitar), and Dustin Hames (drums). Pursuing their initial live presentations at regional music night clubs, the band shipped their self-released eponymous Compact disc, The Boxers, still in 1999. Developing a devoted and enthusiastic pursuing, the trio got into the studio once again a year afterwards to record their second record, Alexa, in 2000. Retrospective 1999-2001 found its way to 2001.
