Biography

Xaviera, a native of Bridgeton, New Jersey, has loved music since she was a child and attributes her musical start to singing in her local church choir. At the tender age of 19, Xaviera relocated to Atlanta in pursuit of a career in music. It didn’t take long for Xaviera to realize the music scene in the “Black Music Mecca” wasn’t quite what she had imagined it to be. She laughs as she recalls, “I remember thinking I would run into Babyface in the produce aisle of the grocery store. I would sing for him and be signed to a deal on the spot.” Over time, after growing frustrated and a bit discouraged, Xaviera decided to take a different route. “Why wait for an opportunity when you can create one for yourself?” she asks. Xaviera spent the next couple of years educating herself on the ins and outs of the music business. In early 2004, Xaviera founded her own indie imprint - Sunshyne Music and released her debut album, Sunshine.

Working alongside Georgia producer, J. David Leonard, Xaviera penned all of the songs on her debut effort. The album delivered a smooth, soulful blend of R&B mixed with the youthful sounds of today's Pop and Hip Hop. Often described as the “love album”, Sunshine touched on topics such as: new love, infatuation, heartbreak, and life after love. The combination of vivid lyrics, bright vocals, and warm melodies made Sunshine simply irresistible.

Big Dee, of 89.3 FM Atlanta says: "In every generation, there is one artist that makes you stand up and take notice. Xaviera is this generation's artist”. Xaviera is proving that statement to be very true. The singer/songwriter is still riding high on the success of Sunshine. Less than four months after releasing Sunshine, Atlanta Urban Mediamakers awarded her "Best Independent R&B Artist" during their '1st Annual Indie Awards.' She has won several awards, established steady rotation on Urban Independent Radio, and she has toured in Sweden. From the Atlanta to Australia, Xaviera is becoming a household name in more than 40 countries around the world.

Xaviera is very excited and optimistic about her sophomore album, Still Shining, released worldwide on July 25, 2006. Xaviera has rejoined forces with J. David Leonard and promises Still Shining is “Sunshine to the third power”. The album is sure to please existing fans and draw new fans like a moth to a flame. Still Shining has songs of encouragement, stress relief, parenthood, love and relationships. It's fair to say when life roughs you up Still Shining is your musical first aid kit. Xaviera shares, “This album is very special to me because I’ve written about a lot of my own personal struggles and experiences. I want this album to touch people, make them smile, and give them hope.” With lyrics to the title track like: “When the storms of life get me down I know I can make it. Cause through the rain I can see the sun still shining”, Xaviera is sure to meet and exceed her expectations for her new album.
