ROXANNE DE BASTION
“Standout number…astonishingly assured” (Clive Davis, The Sunday Times)

“A real mover and shaker in the independent music world” (Ruth Barnes, Amazing Radio)

“If you ever get a chance to go see her live – definitely do!” (BBC Introducing)

Roxanne’s new EP, ‘Seeing You’, which was recorded in London and produced by Ben Walker (radio 2 Folk Award Nominee) is out now on Hidden Trail Records. The EP contains 4 new tracks of cutting and clever lyrics, delivered with what BBC6 producer Tom Whalley said to be “one of the most perfect voices [he’s] ever heard”.

Roxanne de Bastion was born in Berlin and grew up both in England and Germany until she set out on her own, leaving Berlin for London, equipped only with her guitar and a one-way ticket. The young troubadour tours throughout the UK, mainland Europe and the United States, all on trains and buses. She self-released her debut album The Real Thing, produced by Gordon Raphael (The Strokes / Regina Spektor) in 2013 and has since then been championed by Tom Robinson on BBC6, John Kennedy on XFM, Ruth Barnes on Amazing
Radio, R2 Magazine and The Sunday Times. RERUN was recently added to Spotify’s “New Music Monday UK” playlist and has received national airplay on BBC’s Mark Forrest show.

Musically, Roxanne’s compositions are routed in the music of the 1960’s, but the tone of voice is very much her own and the stories told are expressed in a way that could only be now. With Seeing You, she continues to forge a unique approach to the singer songwriter genre. Her lyrics range from introspective journeys in Seeing You and Same Moon, through to observations on instant gratification and repetition (Rerun) and the tearing down of the East Side Gallery in Berlin, Roxanne’s town of birth (Wasteland).

Support from Gitta de Ridder.
