Roxana Line is a “one-girl-band” who seamlessly blends emo, musicals and rock influences in a self-contained, easter-egg-filled universe of musical fairytales.
After writing and fully arranging songs since the age of 13, fronting three bands (first of which she founded while still in high-school) and finally making a move to Los Angeles in 2019, she is now ready to bring all of her music together under this solo project. Her goal is to use this platform to tell stories through intertwined lyrics, harmony, and visual art.
Over her performance career, Roxana took part in over a dozen of competitions and talent shows (some televised) often winning first prizes for her outstanding vocal performances, original music and stage appearances.
February 24th, 2020 her single “Paper House” made it into semi-finals of the 2019 International Songwriter Competition leaving over 16,000 submissions behind. Music Video for her single "That's The Way You're Giving Up" also became a semi-finalist of the ISC in March of 2021.
Roxana is currently recording her concept album “60% WonderWorlds, 40% Tragedies” heavily inspired by the 19th century literary phenomenon known as Penny Dreadfuls. Each song is a separate short horror story set within the same fictional place she calls #GloomyVerse. The album is full of powerful emo/pop-punk tunes in the best sonic traditions of My Chemical Romance, The Used and Set It Off.
She also began writing a brand new musical also set within her GloomyVerse, but exploring a more orchestral sonic pallet of her favorite Disney musicals written by the legendary Alan Menken and the Kristen Anderson-Lopez & Robert Lopez duo.
“Every song I write is like a beautiful tiny crystal for me, each with angles and sides, which are: notes, sounds, words, special metaphors and symbols. Each crystal has a special pattern, and even if it’s similar to another one, it’s never identical, yet they all live in one reality together.”
