From a very young age, Trixie Whitley nurtured a singular creative spirit, springing from her restless inner directive. At the age of three, she made her onstage debut alongside her father, the internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Chris Whitley. Never resting on her lineage, Trixie set out to craft a unique personal and artistic identity.
One of her early musical efforts impressed the iconic producer Daniel Lanois. He enlisted her to front his own band, Black Dub, with modern jazz drummer Brian Blade and legendary New Orleans bassist Daryl Johnson.
Since 2013, Trixie has emerged as a compelling solo artist with three EPs and two full-length albums in her catalog. “Fourth Corner”, her full-length debut was co-produced by Thomas Bartlett (The National, Sufjan Stevens, Anna Calvi) and engineer/producer Pat Dillett (David Byrne, St Vincent, The Notorious B.I.G)
Her second album "Porta Bohemica" represents an introspective expedition into the depths of her creative identity. Largely self-produced, the album contains contributions from Gus Seyffert (Beck, The Black Keys) and Joey Waronker (Atoms for peace, Roger Waters) .
Her third full length album “Lacuna” came out on March 29, 2019. The album was entirely written and recorded in Brooklyn, New York and produced by acclaimed “Run the Jewels” producer Little Shalimar.
