The new CD, "R. Nature," released on June 21st 2004, reveals an artist who is an intrepid traveler in the musical as well as geographic sense. Adrian Xavier, who has performed with artists such as Jimmy Cliff, Israel Vibrations, Burning Spear, Toots and the Maytals, Damian Marley, Public Enemy, and Many more. He worked with Roger Fisher and Mike Deruiser original members of the legendary group "Heart" and Geoffrey Castle a Violin virtuoso for over two years, performing in Washington and Alaska.
Adrian Xavier, also caught the attention of filmmaker Mark Levin (Slam, Brooklyn Babylon) who proclaimed, "Adrian's music is my new soundtrack."
Adrian explains the motivation behind the positivity to be found in lyrics throughout R. Nature, "These songs reflect my concern for the future of the planet. The CD is dedicated, with thanks to my many inspirations, to equal rights, truth and justice." Judging from the number of Seattle clubs and events at which Adrian Xavier has played, you'd deduce he likes his hometown fine, but he expects to reach even more far-flung audiences with the release of his solo debut, "R. Nature."
