Trixie Whitley

From a very young age, Trixie Whitley nurtured a singular creative spirit, springing from her restless inner directive. At the age of three, she made her onstage debut alongside her father, the internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Chris Whitley. Never resting on her lineage, Trixie set out to craft a unique personal and artistic identity. She started playing drums when she was 10,  at age 11, she became the youngest resident DJ in Belgium spinning underground electronica, free jazz, ambient instrumentals, and hip-hop at raves and modern art museums. And by her early teens she was touring with several avant-garde theater and dance collectives throughout Europe (including Les Ballets C de la B, with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui & Damien Jalet)

Throughout all of this, she developed an affinity for punk rock’s nonconformist and D.I.Y. ethics that permeated her fearless genre-bending and daring life choices.  After a nomadic transatlantic existence, growing up between New York and Belgium, she quit high school at age 17 and took a job slinging burgers at a NY dive while steadily advancing her music career. One of her early efforts impressed the iconic producer Daniel Lanois (Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Emmylou Harris).  He enlisted her to front his own band, Black Dub, with modern jazz drummer Brian Blade and legendary New Orleans bassist Daryl Johnson.

Since 2013, Trixie has emerged as a compelling solo artist with three EPs, and three full-length albums in her catalog. “Fourth Corner”, her full-length debut, co-produced by Thomas Bartlett (The National, Sufjan Stevens, Anna Calvi) and engineer/producer Pat Dillett (David Byrne, St Vincent, The Notorious B.I.G) garnered acclaim from MOJO, Interview, ELLE, Vogue, Relix, The Village Voice, NPR and The New York Times, among many other publications. The album went gold in Belgium in its first week of sales, and earned her a MIA (Belgian music industry award) for Best female solo artist. With this debut album she toured throughout North America, Europe, Japan and Australia.

Her second album “Porta Bohemica” was released worldwide on Feb 5th 2016 to critical reviews and has already won her the award for best writer/arranger at the 2016 MIA awards. This release represented an introspective expedition into the depths of her creative identity. Written mostly in Mexico or while on the road, Porta Bohemica was recorded throughout a journey from New York to Tennessee to Los Angeles to Europe, which also lends to a particular variety of influences at the intersection of each moment and any given surrounding. Porta Bohemica cribs its name from a defunct European railroad: its songs wind through landscapes of absolute subconscious that she learned to trust by largely self-producing the album with contributions from Gus Seyffert (Beck, The Black Keys) and Joey Waronker (Atoms for peace, Roger Waters) .

2019 was marked by the release of her third full album ‘Lacuna’. Created in conjunction with Run The Jewels producer Little Shalimar, this record sees Trixie pulling from her early R&B influences with a fascinating, heady blend of hi-fi electronic sounds, hypnotic rhythms, her trademark vocals and gut punching lyrics. A year later Whitley released ‘Lacuna (Re-Imagined)’ which included raw versions of the same songs performed live in her Brooklyn apartment, accompanied by string arrangements by friends Emily Wells and Topu Lyo, with horn & woodwinds by Stuart Bogie

Renown choreographer, theater and film director Wim Vandekeybus / Ultima Vez invited Trixie Whitley to create the sound track for two mixed media productions TrapTown and TRACES. In TrapTown, Trixie also took on the role of Themis, one of the leading roles in the movie within the live performance. During their collaboration they sought out forms of storytelling that unfolds beyond familiar language and can only be told in the pulses of dance and music.

With Eric San a.k.a. Kid Koala, she collaborated on ‘Music To Draw To: Io’, a 70-minute-long ambient album that taps into the myth of Io. Billboard recently premiered their first joint track ‘All For You’ here.

We spoke briefly about the narrative of the album before recording,” San recalls. “She was able to make each of the song’s characters her own, giving them a voice to a level that surpassed anything I could have ever imagined. Her singing can be sweet and nurturing, bold and powerful, or chilling and sinister, but it’s always Trixie Whitley. The emotional range she achieves on these tracks is just awe inspiring to me.

Driven by an innate curiosity and a desire to explore and experiment, Trixie frequently collaborates with other artists. She has performed and recorded with Robert Plant, Marianne Faithful, Meshell Ndegeocello, Daniel Lanois, Brian Blade, Daryl Johnson, Emmylou Harris, Marc Ribot, Joe Henry, Bill Frisell, Kenny Wollesen, Sam Cohen, Antibalas, Yuka Honda, Nels Cline, Mark Kelley, Joey Waronker, Mark Guiliana, Sam Amidon, Shahzad Ismaily, Chris Vatalaro and many more.

Moon Radio

MOON RADIO features the collaborative songs of acclaimed singer Julia Haltigan & vibraphone wizard Yusuke Yamamoto. Featuring Julia’s golden voice and Yusuke’s dreamy electric vibes, their unique sound can be described as a bit Roy Ayers, a shake of Julee Cruise and a twist of exotica. Julia and Yusuke’s songs weave together futuristic visions, nostalgia and the honesty found in between, resulting in a beautiful exploration of transcendence and the human experience.
