Biography


Mike Xavier It’s rare to find a hip-hop artist who appeals to everyone from all walks of life. Xavier does just that, proving himself to be that unique artist through his vivid, poetic and real life – though upbeat and optimistic – lyrics.


Xavier’s generation-defying appeal comes in part because of his live band. A gifted, smooth, and well-trained group that includes trumpet, keys, bass, and drums. After years of performing alongside a DJ, Xavier decided it was time to task a crew of expert instrumentalists to help him create a live experience that’s unparalleled in the world of hip-hop. They gently wrap his insightful lyrics in energetic and accessible jazz that consistently captivates crowds of all ages.


While the band’s smooth, patient strumming draws you in, the lyrical portrait Xavier paints of this often gritty world is what leaves audiences of all backgrounds feeling they’re one with a peer or someone who has genuinely lived in their dirt-stained shoes. That’s because they are: Xavier is all of us.


Before Xavier ever opened up for Hip Hop pioneers such as; Mobb Deep, KRS-One, Tech N9NE and Rakim, he was raised in Los Angeles by a single mother and eventually wound up homeless – sleeping in his car until he could make a few dollars to lay his head on an actual pillow.


The life lessons he first learned on the streets of L.A pour out when he’s on stage. When Xavier performs his acclaimed song “Sunshine,” it's clear that he longs to be a good father and a positive role model.


“We just got to teach our kids they can change the world,” Xavier raps with his calm though upbeat tone. “They used to tell me, ‘Try them drugs.’ I ain’t never try it.”


Xavier’s heart doesn’t just pour out in his lyrics; he also backs it up with action. He organized an event to feed the homeless, and held his second annual Toy Drive, which brought out some of Las Vegas’ best talent to pay it forward for children in need. Mike has been a Keynote Speaker for the House of Blues Music Forward Foundation and has also performed for the neglected and abused children who live at St. Jude's Ranch. In addition to the above, Xavier has partnered with the Subversive Music Foundation for the second year to raise over $80,000 to provide scholarships for music education + studio time to promote respectful, non-violent drug-free music to underprivileged youth.


With interviews and performances on popular TV outlets such as FOX, NBC, and ABC News, Xavier has expanded his reach to the masses. In 2018 Xavier partnered with Toyota for a special performance, and also shared the bill with world-renowned artists such as The Weeknd, Florence + The Machine, and Travis Scott at The Life Is Beautiful Music Festival. His success has quickly carried over into 2019 with the release of his new album titled 'Still Dreaming,' and a sold-out show at Vinyl Las Vegas, a 750 capacity venue located inside the famed Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Mike's success has continued throughout the year with a sold-out show in LA at The Moroccan Lounge, and a headlining show at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas with over 1,000 tickets moved. In October 2019, he'll also be sharing the stage with Mr. Carmack, THEY, and Andrew Power of Soulection presented by We The Beat.
