I can’t believe it is under a week until Summer Waves, under a week until Jasmine Thompson, James Hersey, FlicFlac, Pop Art Live and more take to the stage at Shimmy Beach Club.

Yes, you read that correctly, the chart topping Jasmine Thompson, with songs like ‘Adore’ and collaborations with the likes of Robin Schulz will perform alongside James Hersey, known for his work with Dillon Francis and Kygo on ‘Coming Over’ and the formidable duo FlicFlac are set to shake things up.

It is an absolutely incredible line up and tickets are a steal at just R95.

Summer Waves takes place on Sunday the 17th of April. I’ll see you there!

I spoke to newcomer Oh Roxy on her influences, plans for the future and what she would like to achieve in the music industry.

Why did you pick the name Oh Roxy?

In school, I got in trouble often. I’d always give my teachers hell, and most of their comments ended with a big sigh and Oh Roxy following right after. Also, it gives me something to shout on stage, haha!

How would you describe your sound? 

I would describe Oh Roxy’s sound as alternative. Just think of a very local vibe with a whole bunch of strangeness thrown into it! Best kinda tune!

Who are your musical influences?

My musical influences are Hozier, Matt Corby, Aurora and lastly, Amy Winehouse – she is my hero!

What would you like to achieve in the music industry?

I would love to become big enough to play shows like Kirstenbosch, Music at the lake, OppiKoppi etc! That would be my absolute ultimate.

Last but not least, what are you currently working on and do have you any projects you are excited about?

I’m currently working on an EP which should be out soon! It’s fun and exciting and something completely different and unique.

Roxy recently released her debut single ‘This Is Me’ and you can get it here.
