Description

Trixie Whitley's sophomore release, Porta Bohemica, represents an introspective expedition into the depths of her creative identity, culminating in her resolve to fearlessly let go of gratuitous baggage, not needed on future travels. Trixie Whitley was born in Belgium in 1987 and re-located to NYC the following year. When she was three years old she and her mother, a philosopher and healer, return to Belgium. She has performed and recorded with such artists as Robert Plant, Marianne Faithful, Daniel Lanois, Bill Frisell, Sam Amidon, and many more. Trixie's prismatic artistry reflects electronica, R&B, the vulnerable ethos of singer-songwriters, and the unapologetic individuality of punk rock. Although her previous effort reflects her broad tastes, it is with her latest that Trixie creates a transcendent musical miscellany. It even took chucking an earlier version of the record and starting over to achieve the meaning and mastery displayed in Porta Bohemica, which flourished with the help of producer Gus Seyffert (Beck, The Black Keys) and Joey Waronker (Atoms for Peace, Ultra sta). "I wanted to make people think and feel something honest and emotionally complex in my music--that came from me being present in the creative moment. I ended up finishing two records, the second one being Porta Bohemica, and it really came together at the end of the process" Trixie confides.
