focuses on writing and vocals, applying her unique musical sensibility
and pure style to a wide range of genres, often working together with
similarly creative musicians.
the furthest traveling of her collaborations are several songs done with
J-Punch, which were picked up by many top DJ’s and remixed onto various
projects and compilations by R:Tem, Fretwell, Micah, Presslab, Gee and
Lighter, and Mike Hiratzka. The acappella version of “Amazing Grace” from
her debut project is enshrined in the Library of Congress as part of the
Chasanoff/Elozua collection, believed to be the world’s largest collection
of recordings of a single song.
collaborators featured on various prior (or perhaps future) recordings
are: Joey Muniz/The Bedroom Rockers, dj:Kable, Private Asylum, Luke James/Spaz,
Post Modernist Music (PMM), Jon Larson, Mike Stone of Future Renaissance,
Steve Lee of Essell, Joe of Sensory Deprivation X, Tim Dwyer of Full Source,
and Matt Nolan. Her soon to be released (2009) work with The Lounge Lovers
takes a more organic jazzy direction and is the fullest statement (yet)
of the diversity of sound, style and feeling XEW strives for.
