Colorado Springs-based artist Xanthe Alexis draws from a wealth of traditional influences to create her own arresting and wholly original musical framework. In 2016 acclaimed singer/songwriter released her Radio Chart Topping, self-released, fan-funded LP, “Time of War.”
Alexis began performing professionally in 2004, and quickly built a loyal fan following before progressing to national and international touring from 2008 on, including shows in France, at New York’s renowned Rockwood Music Hall, and extensive stops throughout the American southwest and west coast. Xanthe received the Pikes Peak Art Council’s “Excellence in Arts Education” award in 2016 for her work as an educator.
Her debut solo LP, “Time of War,” blends traditional folk, sepia-toned Americana, old-world gypsy jazz, and Alexis’ strikingly evocative voice to weave tales of redemption, madness, and love which span time, space, and the universality of the human experience.
