Interview, Black Square – October 2021
“Xiomara is a transcendent musician who uses lyricism to stay true to her artistic vision. Her music reinvents real-life dynamics such as racial trauma, love and empowerment and reflects lessons learned. She sees her music as an emotional outlet and knows that she can serve others as a means of healing. While RnB and soul music have always had an influence on her musical style, she knows the importance of diversifying to discover different sides of oneself.”
“There is a sista in every single song on the album and some of them know who they are and some of them don’t….there’s no better feeling than hanging out with a bunch of Black women.”
11/4/19. With her breakout 2016 release “Seven Nineteen,” Xiomara’s soulful debut took home top rankings in SF Weekly’s “5 Best Bay Area Albums of 2016” list and led to guest spots on releases from Son Little, Blu, and Oh No to name a few. Leaning heavy on Xiomara’s songwriting and arrangement chops, the newly formed duo spent the last year crafting a collaboration as original as it is reminiscent.
