A multi-instrumentalist who plays guitars, Yidaki’s (didgeridoos), Weissenborn slide guitars, stomp boxes, djembes, harmonica, and several other different percussion and drums, Xavier’s talent is unmistakable. On stage he impressively performs guitar, didgeridoo and percussion simultaneously, surrounded by various instruments and singing from behind a stand holding three Yidaki’s (didgeridoos of different keys).
Xavier’s albums Solace and Food in the Belly both reached platinum sales in Australia, with Food In The Belly also earning him an ARIA nomination for Best Blues And Roots Album. His latest offering White Moth realised a goal of combining the acoustic warmth offered by a studio with the adrenalin of the stage.
His sincerity and frankness are reflected in his music, which explains the huge level of support his rhythmic and rootsy sounds are met with wherever he tours.
Xavier’s new Album Dark Shades of Blue was released to the world on Aug 19, 2008
