VIDEO: Roxanne de Bastion – Buckle Up


Berlin born, London based Singer / Songwriter Roxanne de Bastion releases her debut single ‘Buckle Up’ with SGO Records / Proper UK on November 27th.Watch the video below, it’s a rather smart guitar pop song with lashings of personality and glamour. In her own words “For the music video, I thought I’d see what happens when you just walk into the BBC receptions and start playing a song..! The video is produced by Ed Dark, previously in charge of visual effect on the Harry Potter films.”

For Roxanne de Bastion there is no plan B. Performing since she was 10 and composing since she was 15 years old, she is a musician, heart and soul. Roxanne moved to the UK in 2007. She had her guitar, a suitcase and a one-way ticket. In the 4 years since then, she has gone from playing open mic nights to headlining some of England’s most prestigious venues such as the 100 Club, the Cavern Club and the Barfly.

Roxanne plays in the major music centres, Berlin, London and New York. Berlin’s raw cool, England’s musical legacy and New York’s vibrancy have all coloured her music – it’s honest, quirky and in a genre of its own. Her song writing has been aligned to Dylan, Ray Davies and Regina Spektor; Roxanne’s song “One Morning” was embraced by the BBC, receiving national and regional airplay (Tom Robinson, Martin Winch and Dave Monks).
