ROXINY

New York City based singer/songwriter Roxiny was born in the Dominican Republic and raised in Spain, Panama, and Italy. Roxiny’s first big break would come in 2013 when Brooklyn based noise pop duo Sleigh Bells enlisted her as a backup singer. Two years later, she partnered with Little Shalimar of Run the Jewels and TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe to write the song “Phoenix” for the Rubble Kings soundtrack. It was around this time that she was introduced to producers Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Future Islands, Beach House) and Jonathan Kreinik (Run the Jewels, Cassius, The Rapture). The outcome of these sessions was her EP Rituals, a profound diary of Roxiny’s personal battles and raw sexuality; her feverish voice moving effortlessly from velvety- sung confessions to hair-raising wails amidst a backdrop of pulsing synthesizers, snarling guitars, and primitive drum machines. Although the stories she tells are weighty, catharsis is most often found. In October 2018, Roxiny released "Golden Prophet," the third single from her Rituals EP. Dark and contagious, the song was delivered with a powerful message about sexual abuse on International Day of the Girl, landing Roxiny on the pages of Rolling Stone Magazine for the second time. In March 2019, Roxiny headlined People Magazine's 25 Most Powerful Women event in Miami to critical acclaim. As an artist and activist, Roxiny is indeed laying the groundwork for a new kind of counterculture femme – embracing her power, defiance, and femininity all the while honoring her life’s most intimate details.
