Falling squarely into the anti-folk category by way of a manipulated, punk-y violin, Roxy Rawson has been a cult presence on the Parisian and London music scenes.
Born into a Mormon community in Hitchin, she was introduced to music through Church hymns, but found her feet in Paris where she studied classical violin and piano. Surrounding herself with local jazz performers, she found her own voice, developing a unique vocal style through singing ‘jumping jazz intervals’ on the streets of the French capital. She also joined an African Choir, adding yet another multi-cultural layer to her sound.
Rawson left Paris for London in 2006, and joined an anti-folk collective by the name of AsYet, working alongside alternative original talents such as William Nein, David Goo, Miss Jo Williams, Fiona Bevan and Left with Pictures. She soon attracted the attention of producer and label owner Al Mobbs (Damon Albarn). A development deal with Sony led to her debut EP 'Changing Things' released on Ambiguous Records (2009) and the coinciding single 'Fingers'.
Now readying her debut album, Roxy Rawson has teamed up with producer Ben Lamdin. Titled 'Quenching the Kill', Roxy’s full length album is being released after a period of ill health. It strives for authenticity in the face of muted creativity. It is a brave and beguiling look at Roxy’s desire for emotional honesty in an industry in which emotional vulnerability has been supplanted by commercialized sentiment.
