Xenia Rubinos - vocals & keys | Marco Buccelli - drums | Jackson A. Hill - bass & keys
Music maker Xenia Rubinos uses her powerful voice to create beats and melodies from scratch. Xenia’s sound grows from a wide range of influences from r&b and hip-hop to Caribbean rhythms all delivered with a soulful punk aura. Her debut record, Magic Trix, is an ecstatic collection of songs featuring layered beats, crunchy keyboards, and driving syncopated rhythms. Spin recently described her sound as “multi-genre-hyphenate instrumental textures beneath Billie Holiday-esque croons”.
In her only West Coast appearance this year, Xenia will perform material from her critically acclaimed album Black Terry Cat, about which Pitchfork wrote, “Rubinos' magical voice gives each of these songs their own distinctive character and magnetism” while The Village Voice called the record “a multifaceted wonder.”
