PRESS RELEASE FOR "THE HOXXXY DEMOS"
Recorded over eight years, ‘The Hoxxxy Demos’ presents the sound of an artist grappling with the mystical tools of music making and delivering some undeniably soulful nuggets in the process. Armed only with a MacBook, a deep bag of soul and a wad of determination, Princess Freesia has emerged from the lab brandishing fourteen stellarsonic tunes that belie their humble origins.
‘The HOXXXY Demos’, however, isn’t simply the sound of an artist finding her voice. That big-voiced, chameleon-like, vocal shifter, Princess Freesia, is centre-stage from the get-go, generously peppering each and every track with lashings of soul and charisma. Indeed, it sounds like Freesia’s magnetic personality was locked in place from day one, as demonstrated via the earlier boogie grooves of Got Me Started On It and Sexy, right through to later jams such as the steamy Lay D, Se7en and a surprisingly stirring rework of the old Isley Brothers gem, Between The Sheets. In addition to strong songwriting and innovative arrangements, Freesia’s character permeates each and every track, lifting the material above humble demo status.

"Most of these demos are what made me want to work with Princess Freesia when I first found her music in 2005. The musical arrangements and melodies are out of this world, and her lyrical content is not from
this planet. I can categorically say there is no other artist quite like Princess Freesia. I hope these songs will blow your mind as they did mine when I first heard them!"
