"Roxiny- HERO Music Video"

The beautiful and talented, Roxiny, is back! The songstress is back with a brilliant new video for her addictive and rather amazing track “Hero” for our viewing enjoyment. The singer/songwriter opens up in the video and gives us a look into her creative mind and unique sound as she brings her track to life in a fitting, artful looking piece.

Roxiny gives us something captivating and special, showing off her talents and voice, floating upon the instrumental effortlessly and creating a unique video to match. The video was directed by Shan Nicholson, was shot in the Dominican Republic, where she originally hails from. Check out the video after the jump and speak on it after the jump. Stay tuned for much more coming soon from Roxiny! - StupidDope


"Roxiny HERO"

Roxiny's "Hero" conjures an earthy darkness she promises to keep throughout her 2nd EP. Heady, spiritual, exploring new textures with every song, unfolding like some sort of beautiful ritual. The video for "Hero," directed by Shan Nicholson, was shot in the Dominican Republic, Roxiny's country of origin and backdrop to most of her visual work. This time, at night, in the ocean. The song speaks to a new kind of hero, one whose strength comes from intuition rather than force. Hero swells and stretches from deeply vulnerable to fiercely unapologetic. It's evident, this is one for the girls. - HYPETRAK


"Introducing Roxiny"

"Internationally raised by way of NYC, Roxiny Rivas - Roxiny to you and I – releases her latest throwback to the 80s in the form of single ‘Cheree’ this month. Showcasing retro, reggae vibes, a gorgeous video featuring the woman herself and rare footage of The Big Apple during the 1980s, ‘Cheree’ displays the Latin Princess’ uplifting side with upbeat, down tempo melodies and bouncing bass rhythms.

If it’s sounding up your street, then the QOYA EP is something you’ll want to get into your ears. With a more chilled, electro vibe to it, QOYA is awash with Roxiny’s sultry vocals, heavy bass and retro 80s electro-pop styling. Look out for her on the net, whether it be working as an activist for one of the many causes she supports, behind the microphone on another electro-pop gem or gliding around New York in one of her videos; waves are being made." - Goldflake Paint - Goldflake Paint

"Roxiny's Love Path"

"Life never seems to follow the path that we have projected. While some of us may see ourselves doing one thing, life has a way of making you try another. Roxiny, a Dominican singer/songwriter knows of the universe and its little tricks. After touring with Sony records as a member of the girl band Jzabehl, and poised to take over the Latin and English community simultaneously, the group was disbanded and her whole life had to change course.

Roxiny says the experience was “the best thing that has ever happened to me.” There were struggles along the way: “After I left Sony, suddenly all the money was gone.” She took that time to reflect on her life and allow the events that unfolded to inspire the music for her new EP. “Just being an artist, there is nothing worse than being suffocated [when] the true beauty of art is expression.”

Her most recent single, “Cheree,” a Suicide cover, is about a boy and the love that followed their first encounter. “I was on a date with this guy and he put on a song and it became the theme song for the relationship. I wanted the song to express the magical yet gritty feelings of the night. The feeling that everything is possible.” After the song was spread throughout the Internet and radio waves, members of Suicide gave her the nod or approval. “That meant so much to me.”

“When I write it comes from a very visual place. It is almost as if I can see the video in my mind.” The film is a compilation of vintage footage that shows both the romanticized and hidden sides of New York City, as well as a few of Roxiny’s interactions with the cityscape."- GuySpy - GuySpy


"Roxiny CHEREE New Video"

"There continues to be an incredible amount of talent coming out of New York City. One of the NYC-based artists that caught our ear recently is a singer named Roxiny.
The Dominican singer has an EP coming out on March 20th called QOYA. The project’s first single is the sultry “CHEREE.”
The instant you play the song, the first thing you’ll notice is Roxiny’s voice: It’s smoky, jazzy and has almost a spooky tone to it.
As for the video, it features Roxiny around New York City, while old school clips of the city pop up.
The song and the video are both quite good.
For more info on her, check out her site, Roxiny, and look out for her EP, QOYA."- Global Grind - Global Grind


"Roxiny"

"La comparaison à Lana Del Rey sera surement facile me direz vous, mais l’univers de Roxiny, sa voix et son nouveau clip pour le titre Cheree s’approche fortement de ce registre. Le titre sera sent sur son nouveau single QOYA, qui sortira le 20 Mars prochain."- WATM - WATM (We Are The Mascotte)- France

"Roxiny BELONG"

"Roxiny, a New York City-based songstress, plays the role of a transcendent top model in “Belong.” Clad in all white, the Dominican dance pop singer mysteriously traipses on the sandy shores of a beach and throughout the forest, pursuing a mysterious young girl who represents a metaphor of life. While we follow the storyline, we’re transfixed by the techno undertones and Roxiny’s breathy, heavenly voice."- MTV Iggy - MTV Iggy

"Roxiny- Cheree"

Bio

"The artists featured, Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio and the singer/songwriter Roxiny (who sounds a little like early Santigold which is to say, amazing)"-  Pitchfork

Roxiny is a NYC based singer/songwriter with a sound born of battle cries and primitive drum machines; intense and anxious, yet luminous. Before partnering with producers Chris Coady (Beach House, Future Islands, Santigold, Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Jonathan Kreinik (Jean Miche, TransAm, Jim Jarmusch) to work on her album Rituals, Roxiny released her single "Phoenix" under Mass Appeal with Little Shalimar and Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio. As the only female artist featured on the Rubble Kings soundtrack, Roxiny shared space and made her mark amid the likes of Run the Jewels, Killer Mike, and Ghostface Killah. She became an instant standout on Pitchfork, who compared her voice to an early Santigold. Roxiny spent the remainder of 2016 completing Rituals between New York and Los Angeles. She also plans on releasing a second single in collaboration with Little Shalimar of Run the Jewels in 2017.
