ABOUT THE ARTIST
A native of Little Rock, Arkansas, Xavier realized his love for music at an early age. With a passion for music, and a proven ability to perform at a pinnacle level, Xavier is making a great impact on today’s music scene throughout the entire state. His musical first love is drumming. He developed his artistry for drums and sound through self taught means. Creating music came naturally for Xavier as a child; he would spend hours creating rhythmic vibrations around his house. His pure talent and creative prowess was recognized by his father. Xavier was given the opportunity to perform publicly in their home church on both the drums and keyboards. Over the years, Xavier found his way into studio production; writing and producing music for local artists. Becoming a DJ was a seamless transition. In 2013, while using his keen sense of rhythm, accompanied by his passion to produce sound, allowed for his DJ skills to emerge.
Xavier’s musical and scholastic talents earned him a partial scholarship to the University of Arkansas. He studied under the leadership of Dr. Charles Law while majoring in Percussion. During this period, Xavier’s talents as a percussionist, as well as a Music Director were sought after by many local, and national artists. Xavier was co-founder and owner of In His Presence Productions, Inc., a Christian production company. Through this venture, he taught percussion basics as well as graphic artistry. His graphic talents have been enlisted by countless businesses and non-profits. In 2013, while searching for a DJ for his own upcoming wedding, Xavier was offered the opportunity to utilize his gifts, talents, and skills as a DJ by joining the largest entertainment company in Arkansas.
Xavier prides himself in creating memorable moments be it a wedding or a major corporate event. Thus resulted in his infamous tagline #XperienceTheMoment.
