Mathis Xavier is a singer-songwriter and producer based in NYC. With a sound that seeks to transcend genres and eras, it lands on a fine blend of jazz, rock and R&B influences that the Montreal artist merges through new age production. With an uncommon voice that clings to every memory and betrays any emotion, Mathis Xavier explores the despairs of unrequited love and its extremes. At 23, he will release his first Ep, 'Violence in Cinema', later in the new year. True stories, but also fantasies told through a ‘piano bar’ type of trame, 'Violence in Cinema' aims to expose the extents we are willing to go to try to avoid the inevitable.
