The FAC Team Is Growing
Introducing The FAC Team Additions
Roxanne de Bastion – Artistic Director, BEAT Board
Since the release of her debut album in 2013, London artist with Berlin roots Roxanne de Bastion has made a name for herself across Europe as “a real mover and shaker in the independent music scene” (Ruth Barnes). Over the past 12 months alone, Roxanne has toured with the Wainwright Sisters, Thea Gilmore, has performed at Glastonbury on the legendary acoustic stage and completed her first tour of the USA.
Roxanne Said: “I was asked to join the FAC Board after meeting Fran Healy [Travis] in Berlin back in 2014, where we were taking part in a panel debate about the future of music. As an independent artist who's still at the beginning of their career, I was humbled to be part of a group of established artists who all come together, giving their time for free, to ensure that future generations will have the opportunity to create music and build careers in a fair environment. I see my role on the Board and BEAT Board as representing independent and emerging artists. “
