Huey meets ROX

Huey meets Roxanne Tataei aka ROX, a young lady who featured heavily in the tips for musical success in 2010. Half Jamaican and half Iranian, her songwriting combines her gospel background, rootsy reggae, Lauryn Hill's sass a whole sack-load of Sade soul.

Huey meets her just following the releasing her debut album. At the tender age of just 21 it's rather precociously titled 'Memoirs' but the signs are good - released on Rough Trade, ROX has worked with Commissioner Gorden (Lauryn Hill, Damien Marley, KRS One) and Al Shux (Jay-Z's 'Empire State of Mind') on the record. She talks to Huey about her musical influences and heritage, her plans and how she's handling the hype.

Amongst a selection of his favourite records from rock to punk, reggae, rap, soul and blues Huey asks cut-up DJ Jaguar Skills to spin a rare or special cut in Sharing Is Caring and a listener is invited to indulge their Vinyl Fetish as Huey puts the needle on their favourite record.
