In her twenties, Wall Street lawyer Roxana Labatt learned that she had a blood clot that could at any moment move to her heart, brain, or lungs and kill her instantly. The experience, from which she has fully recovered, brought about drastic change in her life. She left behind the path of safety that practicing law had offered, allowing herself instead to pursue a latent passion for music — a passion that first shone through when she was only three years old, standing on her parents' piano bench and belting out “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” to anyone who’d listen. Roxana now spends her time writing and performing lyric-driven indie rock and indie pop ballads. Roxana’s lyrics have been described as viscerally emotive, stirring, and irreverent. The themes of Roxana’s songs, many of which deal with complex relationships, are broadly relatable. “It’s my hope that my songs make people feel less alone,” she says.
After releasing her first single in 2020, Roxana spent 2021 traveling around Texas performing original power-pop songs including "In My Nightmares." Roxana then turned her focus to developing a new body of work. The new project, which she hopes to debut in late 2023/early 2024, will introduce numerous never-before-released or performed original indie rock and indie pop songs such as "Lonely," "Playing the Part," and "Fall to Pieces" (and may include a few favorites from the power-pop set in a somewhat reimagined form). Roxana is very excited to share these songs soon.
