Roxy Blue and the Handful had one release, What's the Password, before evolving into simply Roxy Blue, named for their frontwoman. Under that name, they released a debut EP Raw (Hit Nation Records) in April 2013.
Blue, with Roxy bassist Johnny Houghton and their latterday drummer Tylo Hartig, later formed the Fighting Able, an alt-blues-rock band also featuring Julia Maund. Their debut EP Expected was released in April 2016.
