Rukhsana Merrise

Hailing from West London there is something very unique about singer-songwriter Rukshana Merrise.

Known to many as Rox, she makes music regardless of genre limitations or commercial pressures. When she’s in the studio, she’s not thinking about writing a song for her record. She’s thinking about writing a song – end of story. “Just leave yourself in the music, do what’s real to you and you’ll get there,” she says. “The music will do what it needs to do.”

Having previously collaborated with Wretch 32, Ghetts and Avelino, supported the likes of Rag’n’Bone Man, James Bay, Oh Wonder and Michael Kiwanuka, and performed at Glastonbury, Citadel, and Somersault to name a few, Rox is now ready to release her debut record.
