Vōx (pronounced wokes) released her debut EP in May 2017. “I Was Born, is a complex set of songs about coping with anxiety and discovering the power within herself. Each song builds tension through her vocals, which soar above minimal beats, layered harmonies, and dense reverb.” i-D
“I Was Born is the story of personal rebirth. It’s naked. It’s vulnerable. Leaving your past behind to serve a bigger purpose can be painful or lonely. But the most powerful thing you can do is change.”- vōx
VŌXs performances are a beautiful, haunting and emotional experience, with her ethereal and dangerously sweet vocals, she lures you into her songs/stories one by one, while she mysteriously stays hidden behind her veil.
“The translucent shroud typically covers her whole body though, in the case of this particular show, it enveloped the entire stage. In it, she is both hidden and exposed, both a living artist and an intangible experience.” – Grimmy Goods
