Xaris has been singing since she was little, and started writing songs and playing the guitar as early as 8-years-old. Xaris’ father only had to teach her three chords on an old guitar, and she was off to the races. She is just now jumping into the world of being a traveling musician, going on her first tour in June 2018.
Her music style is somewhere in between folk and Americana. Listeners have compared her voice to the likes of Dolly Parton and Joni Mitchell. You may even recognize Xaris from the Gulf Breeze community or Season 13 of NBC’s “The Voice.”
My One and Only
This Americana duo gathers its strength from Southern soul mixed with curious grittiness. Together, Kassie and Benjamin make music equally as harmonious as their own marriage. True-to-life lyrics bid you to wander through hidden scenes in their lives, accompanied by the soundtrack of hollow-body guitars and home-grown harmonies. From intimate house concerts to their performance at the Ryman Auditorium in their hometown of Nashville, My One And Only has graced stages all over the United States as well as the “Mara Tour” in Uganda, Africa.
Kassie moved to Nashville from her home-state of Alabama to follow after a country music career, which led her through the struggle all too familiar to those who pursue the arts. She soon began to support herself using her vocal talents at a local karaoke venue, which led to demo-singing and songwriting. Growing up in the plains of Iowa, Benjamin was one of the few in his family to take an interest in playing and making music, which led him on a path toward audio engineering. This newfound hobby eventually led him to study audio in Nashville, where he met his soon-to-be wife and musical partner, Kassie. Previously both solo artists, Kassie and Benjamin have taken their country and alternative-rock backgrounds and forged a new timeless, off-center sound.
My One And Only has been faithfully writing on their new project, which will release in late 2017. For more information about My One And Only, email firstname.lastname@example.org. To be updated about news and releases, please sign up for the email list.
