"Album Review by Nina Ponti"

Roxi Alonso’s debut album, Beautifully Damaged, doesn’t end on the first listening. The more you listen to it the more it will keep surprising you with its subtleties and depth. It will keep growing in you like mature love.

The twelve songs intertwine the most diverse musical influences, the sweet folk of a young Rickie Lee Jones, the risk of an experimental PJ Harvey or that of a less tormented Fiona Apple, impregnating an authentic feeling of spiritual pop.

In the style of one of her personal heroines, Joni Mitchell, Roxi’s phrasing is jazzy and loose, like that of consummated singers. Behind the beauty of the songs emerges an artist with true identity that is not afraid to expose her vulnerability. She confirms the existence of a personal poetic universe that irradiates optimism and feminine vitality.

Recommended tracks:

#1 Disposable: Modernity and rock in a raw picture of emotional complexity.
#7 Hear Me Calling; Beautiful melody for a piano ballad with lennonistic reminiscences.
#8 Rodney Bar Blues: The sexy, late-night side of Roxi, flirting successfully with jazz.
#12 Weightless Love: Inspired and ethereal melody to close an album that doesn’t end on the first listening.

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, but a New Yorker by adoption, Roxi Alonso has had a life so rich, it would deserve to be written as a novel.

She started studying composition and music at a very early age. Afterwards, Roxi got sucked into academic/contemporary music for longer than she cares to admit. She was a working actress and a movie producer until she finally came back to pop out some Pop Jazz so hot, that it was burning her computer, and she had to put it in an album.

Roxi’s sonority is gutsy, soulful and as eclectic as her musical background. Influenced by Pop hits and all things jazzy, Roxi has also a deep connection with Argentine rock, folklore, and tango. She publicly admits a serious weakness for American and French singer-songwriters as well.

Roxi never stopped admiring the big girls: Joni Mitchel, Patti Smith, and Janis Joplin, who she considers the mothers of them all. “Granted, she says, there are some fathers out there as well: Leonard Cohen, and Caetano Veloso for instance.” Yet, Roxi admires The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Radiohead, Prince, and everything that makes her move. She is also a big fan of Cornelius.

Roxi's first album, Beautifully Damaged, is a successful attempt to capture life through the eyes of a daring and provocative singer-songwriter.

Roxi’s fans have compared her with Bjork, Feist, and Tina Dico.
