BBC Sound of 2010 Insight Part 14 – Rox

Submitted by / 11 years ago / New Songs

Miss Tataei’s youth wasn’t misspent (like most of us); Saturdays were for Church, for singing, from 9am to 5pm, every week from the age of five to ten. It was here that her voice, love of performance and work ethic took shape. However, in Rox’s own words “It wasn’t long before all that Jazz-Hands stuff got on my nerves”; Chicago (the musical) got swapped for Portishead (Dummy) and Lauryn Hill (the Miseducation).

This new found inspiration combined with an appetite to perform pushed Rox towards the formation of an acoustic jazz group in the spring of 2007. The shows and songs showcased both her musical ability and stagecraft, and their popularity soon began to attract the attention of the several record labels (she eventually signed with Rough Trade).

Her debut solo album is apparantly finished already, and will be released early this year. Listen to Rox below:
