Taken from new album 'Heirlooms & Hearsay'...
Roxanne de Bastion

Roxanne de Bastion came of age during troubled times.

Born in Berlin, the songwriter's family lived in a city divided by political loyalties.

Able to remember the wall tumbling down, these events unconsciously recalled the movements of her grandfather.

Roxanne returns to these familial ties on her new album, with her lyrics focussing on Stephen de Bastion, a Hungarian pianist who relocated to Stratford-upon-Avon after the Second World War.

New album 'Heirlooms & Hearsay' is incoming, with Roxanne de Bastion deciding to share curiously pretty lead cut 'Heart Of Stone'.

It's reminiscent of Regina Spektor's more upbeat moments, the classical flourishes colliding against some superbly straight-forward melodicism.

Tune in now.
