Roxanne de Bastion is ‘The Real Thing’ with debut album, dates & Video!

Roxanne de Bastion debut album “The Real Thing” is out now Nomad Songs. The Singer / Songwriter teamed up with producer Gordon Raphael (The Strokes / Regina Spektor) to record ten of her songs in Roxanne’s town of birth, Berlin. Her first
single “Red and White Blood Cells” is available as a free download and has already been picked up by Tom Robinson on BBC6. Check out Roxanne’s black and white promo for the affectingly naked strum of her new release ‘Some Kind of Creature’ below. She is off on a run of UK dates this month check the dates below too…

Roxanne’s journey started when she set out on her own, leaving Berlin for London, equipped only with her guitar and a one-way ticket. She grew up in a bilingual, musical home and played her first gigs at the age of 10 (performing her favourite Beatles songs in small cafés and clubs) and began writing her own songs at the age of 15. Not knowing anyone in London, Roxanne started playing at as many open mic nights, bars and music venues as she could, traveling throughout the country via bus and train in order to play her songs to as many people as possible. Determination and hard work is paying off and Roxanne now tours regularly, being asked back to venues throughout the UK, Germany and the United States.
