La Roux History
Roux first started making music together in London back in 2006 and consist of singer and keyboardist Elly Jackson along with
her co-writer and co-producer partner Ben Langmaid. They are also joined by keyboardist Mickey O'Brien and drummer William
Bowerman when performing live. They are influenced by Eighties electronic pop acts like Depeche Mode, The Human League, Erasure,
OMD, and the Eurythmics. The duo released their first single Quicksand in 2008 on an independent label but were soon after
signed to Polydor Records. In 2009 their second single In for the Kill was released and was eventually remixed by Skrillex
and Skream. La Roux were suddenly on their way to the top of the electronic music world. A third remix of the single by Lifelike
took the song to the number 11 spot on the UK Singles Chart and their following single, Bulletproof, debuted at number one
on the same chart and also hit number one on the Hot Dance Charts in the United States. The band have won a Grammy Award and
been nominated for a Mercury Prize, opened for Lily Allen, and appeared at major festivals like Glastonbury, Lollapalooza,
Reading, Leeds, All Points West, and more. They have released two studio albums along with their singles, their self-titled
debut La Roux, and 2014's Trouble in Paradise. La Roux continues to record and tour, putting on unbelievable live shows and
winning over fans at every stop.
La Roux's first single, Quicksand, was able to get them
significant enough attention to land a recording deal with Polydor Records, but it was their next two singles, In for the
Kill and Bulletproof, that really got them international attention and climbed to the top of the dance music charts in the
United Kingdom and the United States helping to make La ROux one of the top electronic music acts in the world.
Electronic music shows provide for some of the most exciting concert going experiences anyone could ask
for, and performances by La Roux and the energy given off by their devoted fans are definitely no exception. You have been
dancing and partying most of the night and then suddenly the music picks up and the whole venue seems to surge with energy.
La Roux has taken the stage and started belting out their utterly unique sound that has everyone in the venue going wild.
The party has really just started in earnest and now you're hoping that this night never ends. Just when you think it cannot
get any better than this, La Roux increases the energy level even higher as the audience starts to go crazier and crazier.
Dancing and sweating the night away with a crowd full of enthusiastic La Roux fans is something you will never forget and
by the time they end their set you will be anxiously awaiting the next time they comes to town.
name La Roux is a reference both to Elly Jackson's red hair and her androgynous appearance, taken from a combination of the
masculine and feminine words for red-head in France. The band has won numerous awards including a Grammy Award for Best Dance
Recording for their album La Roux in 2011. Langmaid and Jackson first met one another and bonded over their shared interests
in Joni Mitchell and Nick Drake. They formed their first project Automan, which was a folk music duo, shortly thereafter.
