WHO IS SUMMER XO?
Summer XO is a girl. A girl who writes songs, and sings them while playing guitar, keyboard, and sometimes, ukulele.
It's not rocket science. But it is authentic.
In the indie-pop style of Feist, Fiona Apple, and Ingrid Michaelson, the music is clear-voiced with an inevitable lyrical twist. When people ask what she sounds like, she usually says, "A girl." Her songs embody all the vulnerability, complexity, and strength of the female element.
Though music remains her main focus, Summer is also a visual artist. Her ongoing series called, "The Girls," consists of poster-size pastel drawings depicting abstract female faces in a pop art style. Many of her fans collect these original artworks available for sale in her online store.
She is an American currently based in Los Angeles. Originally from rural West Virginia, she has also lived in Paris (FR), Philadelphia, Miami, Tampa, and Portland (OR).
