Roxanne de Bastion
Roxanne de Bastion was born in Berlin and grew up between 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, travelling only by trains and busses. 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.
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, Roxanne’s new EP, she continues to forge a unique approach to the singer-songwriter genre.
BBC6 producer Tom Whalley declared that Roxanne maintains “one of the most perfect voices he's ever heard”.
