Roxanne Kelly debuts with “Dangerous Love”
North London pop singer-songwriter Roxanne Kelly releases her extraordinary debut single “Dangerous Love” today! Written by Roxanne, taking inspiration from personal life experiences of people close to her, the song begs for her to be taken away from what is weighing her down the most:
“Been tryna say goodbye
But you’ve got a hold on me
You won’t let me go“
“The song is simply about loving something or someone that you know is bad for you but you can’t let go. It is human nature to deny the truth and romanticise toxic relationships that we know are harmful.The song is crying out in pain, unable to move onandasking for help. I believe this song is relatable to many people going through tough times, like addiction, eating disorders and human relationships” Roxanne tells us.
Roxanne was born and raised in London to Irish and Costa Rican parents, as an only child with no extended family in the same country, Roxanne felt lonely and lacked a full sense of cultural identity. With a sense of not belonging and feeling socially rejected in many stages of her youth, Roxanne developed songwriting as a defence mechanism to help her survive.
In her songs, she allows the listener to have a glimpse intoher soul. Roxanne Kelly is an accomplished musician holding a Merit Masters in Music Performance from the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance and a First-Class BA (Honours) in Music from The University of Nottingham.
In 2010, at the age of 15, after competing in a talent contest, Roxanne won the Charlotte Coleman Scholarship Award. Roxanne has performed in notable UK and other European venues, such as Notre Dame Cathedral, Barcelona Cathedral, the RADA Theatre, The Old Vic, BBC Hippodrome and many more. As a singer-songwriter, Roxanne has also performed in popular London venues: Gigi’s London (formerly known as Zigfrid von Underbelly in Hoxton Square), The Islington, Acklam Village Market, The Lucky Pig and headlined The Spice of Life in Soho.
