In the new Guildhall Studio

Roxanne de Bastion is an artist from London with Berlin roots. She has made a name for herself across Europe as “a real mover and shaker in the independent music scene” (Ruth Barnes). Over the past two years alone, she has toured with the Wainwright Sisters, Thea Gilmore, has performed at Glastonbury on the legendary acoustic stage and has completed her first two tours of the USA.

Roxanne's debut album,’Heirlooms & Hearsay’ has received high praise, from Janice Long ("a beautiful masterpiece") to repeat plays by Chris Hawkins on BBC6 ("mighty impressive").

The album is an ode to her grandfather, a pianist from Hungary and a survivor of the Holocaust. The album highlights parallels in rhetoric and events between then and now and points a finger at society's short-term memory.

In addition to her own music, Roxanne also continues her advocacy work for artist rights with the Featured Artist Coalition (where she sits on the board of directors along side Imogen Heap, Sandie Shaw, Ed O’Brien from Radiohead and Nick Mason from Pink Floyd).
