Preaching From the Pews: Roxy Rawson

FaceBook – TwitterMySpace

When Roxy Rawson launched her peculiar attack on the music industry, her emblem of choice was a pink robot. Using a plucked violin set to ethereal vocals, her music embodies a similar mix of feminine whiles, a cappella, convention and the bizarre. Rawson treads were few others dare, and finds herself squarely in the bracket of folk punk.

She releases her material under her own label, fittingly named Polk Funk Records. Debut EP Changing Things came out in November 2009; her forthcoming single, the phenomenal Fingers is due for release on May 2nd and can be heard below.
