X A V I A
XAVIA is Australian multi-instrumentalist, live-looping songstress and NT Song of the Year Finalist, creating lush electronic-folk, a swirling of lush strings, earthy rhythms and soaring melodies drawing you into a vivid song journey.
Her recent single HORIZONS, inspired by her desert home, invites listeners to ‘breathe in’ the vast landscape. It has received international attention including JJJ airplay and over 1 Million Spotify streams in the 8 months following release. “Horizons was written while climbing desert mountains, drinking in the colour with thoughts ascending, heart exploding”.
Live, she is described as breathtakingly unique, looping percussive cello, handmade beats and sparkling autoharp with evocative layered vocals.
XAVIA is originally from Adelaide, formally one half of sibling duo BrotherSister (triple j unearthed winners), and has lived and toured in Australia, Nashville and Europe as a cellist and session musician.
She is now based in Mparntwe/Alice Springs, performing across Australia including at the Darwin Festival, Adelaide Fringe, Darwin Fringe, Wide Open Space Festival and the renowned Festival of Voiced in Hobart, with the likes of Kardajala Kirridalla, Haiku Hands, Holy Holy, Dami Im, Hiatus Kyote and Electric Fields.
