Trixie Whitley

Vocalist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Trixie Whitley was created June 24, 1987 in Ghent, Belgium, the little girl of vocalist and songwriter Chris Whitley, which got her music pedigree heading early. She was playing drums by age ten; touring European countries with various theatre businesses at 11; performing, singing, and dance with Les Ballets C de la B at 14, and rotating like a DJ at raves and celebrations before she was out of her teenagers. She also made an appearance on many of her father’s albums. At 17, she came back to NEW YORK, working like a waitress while she trained herself acoustic guitar and piano, and she was quickly playing her tunes at gigs. Jumping between NY and Belgium for a while, she documented a debut EP (co-produced by Me’Shell Ndegéocello and Dougie Bowne), The Engine, which made an appearance in ’09 2009. That same 12 months she became a member of Daniel Lanois’ Dark Dub music group, along with Lanois, Brian Knife, and Daryl Johnson, as well as the group released an recording, the self-titled Dark Dub, this year 2010. Whitley started documenting a full-length single task in 2011, but stepped back again from the task to tour with Dark Dub. An EP offering Whitley in concert, Live at Rockwood Music Hall, made an appearance in 2012. 4th Part, released in January of 2013, was Whitley’s full-length studio room debut. She co-produced it with keyboardist Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), and with engineer Pat Dillett — both males offered as the primary of her music group. The recording received considerable airplay in European countries and was universally acclaimed. Whitley and her music group played over the Western european and American continents to market it. She received Greatest Female Artist on the 2013 Belgium Music Sector Honours. During breaks, she also started work on songs. After composing and recording an entire record, she was disappointed with it. Undaunted, she shelved it and began once more with co-producers Gus Seyffert (Beck, the Dark Tips) and Joey Waronker (Atoms for Tranquility, Ultraísta). Porta Pohemica, called for a teach series that once linked Germany and Austria, was separately issued on Solid Blood Music.
