Bio

"From the start, Xavier Mayne has been a therapeutic outlet for me to express and explore the beautiful darkside of my personality and emotions. The continued acceptance of both my greatness and all my shortcomings has helped me feel a little more grounded and whole as a person. Life is an unpredictable dance between two opposites...why side with one when you can embody the best of both?”

Xavier is an avid songwriter, accomplished producer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist bound by no genre. His ability in the darkness of his studio doesn’t however dampen his prowess on stage. A born rockstar, his ability to lure crowds into his sultry, darkened world is second to none. Winning over the hearts of fans all around the world both online and in real life having already undertaken nation-wide tours across Australia supporting Carmouflage Rose and a 16-date tour across Europe supporting Chase Atlantic. With the project still in it’s infancy and only under a year old, Xavier Mayne has rightfully taken his place within the up and coming Australian music community and beyond. Already housing a number of significant accomplishments under his belt with UNDERSTAND IT and SHLEEPIN taking out No.1 spots on Unearthed's Hiphop, Pop and overall charts simultaneously for 4 weeks running.

Now in 2019, with a sound that draws influence from The Weeknd, Frank Ocean, Drake, Kid Cudi and having a close childhood friend and Chase Atlantic frontman Mitchel Cave acting as his mentor, teacher and sounding board, XM still sits in his own lane of musicality, delicately blending alluring hooks with raw lyrical flow and floating between down tempo grooves to unshakeable high energy rhythms.

For his debut release, Xavier teamed up with life-long friends Chase Atlantic to produce Shleepin, a track that went on to amass hundreds of thousands of streams on Spotify, over 100k views on YouTube, featured on MTV and set the precedent for everything to come.

Xavier continued to push his collaborative efforts, for his follow up release Understand it, ft GOON DES GARCONS* and Jay Cooper which was featured on Apple Music’s Beats1 with ZANE LOWE, added to commercial radio and loved by playlists across Apple Music and Spotify.

Now Xavier Mayne is back with his third single ‘SPACESHIP.'

Doomed youths and fragile self-destroying beauties. Xavier Mayne takes you on an Astro adventure through excess, frustration & impulsive ignorance. Infusing elements and influences beyond standard bedroom R&B, Xavier Mayne defies genre, effortlessly dancing between soaring hooks and fast-paced verses over a dark yet glittery production.

2019 brings on a new journey for Xavier Mayne, with a repertoire of new music under his belt, exciting international collaborations and tours to come, the possibilities are truly endless.
