Roxiny
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 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. 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.

Moxie Knox
Don’t you love music that takes you back to a certain place in time? The anticipation of a night alone with bae, or the way you swayed with your crush at a party? How about just a Friday night when your swag was untouchable? Moxie Knox is a Bronx, NYC-born entertainer whose lyrics and melodies carry you to that introspective place as you dance along to her soothing vibrations.

There’s a depth to her tone, a rich texture that makes her music all the more real. Amid today’s sonic landscape, Moxie is smooth as velvet but commands attention.

Moxie began her journey into entertainment as a dancer when she was just 5 years old. Her talent took her to revered spaces like Alvin Ailey Studios. In addition to dance, creative writing was one of her favorite hobbies growing up. As a child, she’d receive notebooks from her parents that she’d fill with love songs, poems and short stories. It was a natural transition as she began to hone in on her songwriting ability in high school and continued to develop it in CUNY City College, where she studied music and business management.

In 2018, Moxie released her first two singles and music videos, “Thorough,” and “One More Time.” “Thorough” gained its first stamp of recognition when it was reposted by renowned music site Pigeons & Planes. “One More Time,” released July 30th, earned a spot on the Verified R&B playlist on Audiomack and surpassed over 40,000 streams in its first month.

Moxie teams up with dancers and videographers to create visuals that provide a saturated viewer experience. She continues to inspire and to grind every day, personifying the tenacity of a true entertainer.
Olivia Wendel
Olivia Wendel grew up in Lexington, Massachusetts and moved to NYC to pursue songwriting at NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study where she also studied acting and the classics. Her sound fuses folk and singer-songwriter influences. She is frequently likened to Laura Marling and Ingrid Michaelson. Her first EP with title track We Know Better debuted in August of 2018.
