    R&B

    How does Xavier Omär want to be remembered? As a risk taker. A classic voice. An artist who blurs musical lines. A fearless dreamer. And with these big goals, the singer-songwriter isn’t wasting any time. His EP with Sango titled Hours Spent Loving You and The Everlasting Wave are bringing critical acclaim from fans and the industry. In December 2017 Xavier wrapped his first national headline tour, the sold out Pink Lightning Tour.
     
    Xavier takes pride in his songwriting ability and is most excited by the reward of evoking specific feelings in his listeners with his music. He draws inspiration from artists of all genres, including James Blake, Anderson .Paak, Pharrell, and Kanye West.
     
    Xavier Omär grew up moving across the country and as far as Japan, but he claims San Antonio, Texas as home. Music balanced out the highly structured lifestyle of his military family, as his mother and siblings sang and played drums and piano, and his father was a writer, producer and the minister of music at church. He wrote and produced his first song at 12 years old, recording it in his basement on a 4 track tape recorder. In 2012, he hit the ground running with his solo career and hasn’t stopped since.

    R&B

    The history of pop music is one of reinvention, littered with instances of people who, cut off from resources and representation, have turned inward, mined themselves and remade culture in their own image. Musical-cum-cultural movements like hip-hop, dance music, and punk all began like that: untutored kids deconstructing the music of the time and reassembling the pieces into a world in which they could see themselves.
    And so the story goes with Parisalexa, Seattle’s premiere triple hyphenate—singer-songwriter-producer—who continues to forge her own brand of R&B tinged pop with the raw materials of the past.

    Born into an artistically-inclined family, Parisalexa (real name: Paris Alexa Williams) began developing almost immediately. “I started singing...when I was born” she insists, recounting a family story about her ability to hum as an infant. That preternatural humming turned into singing, then harmonizing with the radio, then writing her own songs and performing them for friends and family at the hair shop and in living rooms. Her growth was aided by the music that inundated her young life: her parents’ jazz, R&B and pop records. “My mom says she listened exclusively to Destiny’s Child when she was pregnant,” she says laughingly.

    But it was an aunt that set a sixteen-year-old Paris firmly on the path to becoming a musician when she gifted her niece a BOSS RC505 looping station. Initially, the gift was a disappointment--she wanted cash--but at the last minute, Paris decided to bring the station with her on a month-long trip to Denmark, leaving the instruction manual at home. That month, in the cold and dark, she began teaching herself to use it. She learned how to record and layer her vocals and how to create beats using handclaps and pencils on tabletops. Slowly, she taught herself how to make music that sourced its materials from the traditions of her youth and reshaped them into something new.

    When she returned from her trip, she began writing songs in earnest. Stints at Berklee and Grammy songwriting camps honed her instinct for song structures and helped her produce slicker, hard-hitting songs, most notably the bouncing kiss-off anthem “Like Mariah.” She also began utilizing songwriting as a way of dealing with the tumult of growing up. “There’s so much in life that I can’t seem to wrap my head around, and music helps me to come to terms with them,” she explains.
    Last year, Parisalexa emerged fully-formed with her debut EP Bloom, which chronicled the course of a relationship—from its genesis, to its greatest heights, to its end, and the resulting exercise in self-love. Close on Bloom’s heels came FLEXA, a four-track mixtape that represented a departure for Parisalexa in both sound and theme. Rather than utilizing the warm, downtempo arrangements that illuminated Bloom, FLEXA was all R&B gloss and trap-inflected austerity. “FLEXA was written at a time where I felt like I knew what I was worth, but other people hadn’t caught up yet. I felt like people were underestimating me, so it was my version of bossing up.” If Bloom was about a journey—that of falling in love and discovering oneself—FLEXA was about what happens once you arrive.
     
    Now, with the release of her latest single, “Water Me,” Parisalexa looks towards the future. “Water Me” feels appropriate now, because the relationship I wrote Bloom about is over and it’s a song about reaching out and asking for help,” she says. Now, Parisalexa is shedding the weight of the past and looking towards her future. Things are looking bright.
