Listening to Xenia Sky is an experience. There is a raw edge, reminding me of some of the music that I love to listen to, from the 1930s and 1940s, when music was raw. Then, with “Adam and the Fire” in mind, a rock edge emerges and that toe tapping turns into a desire to move, and yet, at the same time, to contemplate the lyrics that Xernia Sky has creatively woven within the tapestry of her music.
Come, meet Xenia Sky.
When did you first decide that you wanted to be a musician?
I started singing and writing songs when I was 14. I never made the conscious decision to be a singer/songwriter, it just evolved out of one day picking up my father’s stratocaster and putting words to a very sad melody. I can say that every time I tour or write it is a way of saying to myself “I’m going to keep doing this.” I cant imagine doing anything else.
