Nuuxs is a French born singer songwriter who grew up in Hackney. Her music style is influenced by Tarantino soundtracks and Lo-Fi beats which are demonstrated in her debut single ‘Holy Man’ released in April 8th this year. The track, which has received over 66,000 streams on Spotify, was produced and co-written by Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes, The Libertines, James Bay, Paloma Faith) and added to Starbucks’ in-store playlist.
June 2016 saw Nuuxs and Gosling collaborating again on ‘The Cry EP’. The title track was released as a single, again attracting a huge response via Spotify with over 36,000 streams since its release, and earning a place on their ‘New Music Friday UK’ playlist.
The EP has been welcomed by crtics who have praised Nuuxs for her “bold pop” and “stunning” delivery; she’s been compared to the likes of Lana Del Rey, Gwen Stefani and Adele.
Nuuxs learnt her trade playing in Jazz clubs. She grew up on Soul and R’n’B as well as musicals such as My Fair Lady and Les Miserables. Since making her debut at The Kensington Roof Gardens in February 2016 she has gone on to sell out four shows including dates at The Pheasantry Chelsea, The Groucho and more recently Soho Jazz Club where she was the headline act. Her voice is heaped in nostalgia yet her music is still current and fresh, an alluring combination that lends itself to the intimate performances that have captivated her audiences, but word is spreading and those intimate venues look set to become larger, particularly thanks to airplay from BBC Radio 1’s new music champion Huw Stephens and an upcoming tour supporting Skinny Living, details here.
The videos for ‘Holy Man’ and ‘Cry’ give great insight into Nuuxs style and artistry, both are directed and filmed by Tom J Cronin.
