Trixie Whitley has never been one to follow traditional paths or conform herself to the expectations of others – both in life and in music. Blessed with a creative spirit as remarkable as her transatlantic upbringing, she thrives when challenged to push her boundaries and reinvent herself. And that’s exactly what Run The Jewels producer Little Shalimar went for on her new album ‘Lacuna’. By pairing her trademark vocals and gut-punching lyrics with a heady blend of hi-fi electronic sonics and hypnotic rhythms, we hear Trixie pulling classic R&B and indie rock into a future world of her own on a wonderfully intriguing album that feels both fresh and familiar at the same time. By pairing her trademark vocals and gut punching lyrics with a heady blend of hi-fi electronic sounds and hypnotic rhythms, he has Trixie pulling classic soul into a future world on a wonderfully intriguing album that feels both fresh and familiar at the same time. A bold move, and one that couldn’t be more fitting for her continuous development as a performer, writer and multi-intrumentalist.
Never resting on her musical lineage, Brooklyn-based Trixie Whitley has crafted a unique personal and artistic identity since her on stage debut at age 3 alongside father Chris Whitley. And while his early passing as well as several childhood experiences propelled her into adulthood faster than she could process, they certainly added to the depth of her vulnerability, honesty, and sense of exploration.
Over the years her captivating personality and talent have triggered collaborations with the likes of Daniel Lanois and Brian Blade – who enlisted her to front their supergroup Black Dub – Robert Plant, Marianne Faithful, Meshell Ndegeocello, Daryl Johnson, Emmylou Harris, Marc Ribot, Joe Henry, Bill Frisell, Sam Amidon, Thomas Bartlett, the Resistance Revival Chorus and many more. Most recently she also collaborated with Kid Koala on his latest release ‘Music To Draw To: Io’, out on Arts & Crafts since January 25th.
Trixie’s new album ‘Lacuna’ will be out on March 29. Listen to the single ‘Touch’ here.
