So I get this rather pleasant email from a singer/songwriter, as you do, and it was only the rather lovely Roxanne de Bastion. Roxanne has released a video for her brand new single ‘One Morning’ and it is an absolute delight.
Born and raised in Berlin, Roxanne already knew that she wanted to be a musician at the tender age of 10. Head strong and with a huge passion for music, Roxanne moved to London in 2007 to pursue her music career. In that time she has released her debut EP ‘Mono’ through Zube Records and has continously toured the UK club scene which includes the infamous Cavern Club, The 100 Club and the Camden Barfly, just to name a few.
Just one listen to ‘One Morning’ and you instantly hear the effortless magic that weaves itself in and out of this wonderful song. With playful sweet lyrics that create beautiful imagery that is reminiscent of Regina Spektor and hints of Joni Mitchell too. It’s a captivating display of a modern pop ballad, that will have you strolling along in the London sunshine as the rain begins to stop and your woes seem to disappear.
The single is due for release very soon and Roxanne tells me that her new EP will be out some time in the Autumn. If you want to see her live too, she is playing more dates over the coming month and you can find these out on her Myspace page right now.
And here is ‘One Morning…’
