Born in Nuremberg, Germany, Alex Xavier Taylor, started his creative career at the age of nine when he began to write poems and songs that he mostly kept to himself. Due to a father in the military he moved around frequently never being able to truly fit in. He spent majority of his early life in Columbia, South Carolina; and his teenage years in Chesapeake, Virginia.
Alex describes his sound as alternative Hip-hop/RnB siting Toro y Moi, Childish Gambino, Kanye West, and Frank Ocean as his major contemporary influences. He draws inspiration from his personal experiences, old cartoons, coming-of-age films, and anything that peeks his peculiar tastes. ~ Joseph Sprinkle
“Alexavier is like an eclectic art piece that is constantly changing. I’m just trying to be me while morphing common perceptions of music, and what it means to truly be an artist in the 21st century. ” -Alexavier
