Trixie Whitley burst into public consciousness in 2011 as the lead singer of Black Dub, super-producer Daniel Lanois’ (U2, Bob Dylan) project, blowing people away with a voice and presence beyond her now-25 years. The band’s self-titled album was released in October of 2010 and the group toured well into 2011, with Whitley’s voice propelling the group’s unique groove to ultimate peaks.
With the Black Dub shows, countless solo gigs in New York and Europe, and buzz--building performances at festivals like Bonnaroo, SXSW, and Celebrate Brooklyn, Whitley has become one of the most talked about new artists of 2012. Her debut album, Fourth Corner, explores the range of human emotion in another set of four: utter love, total rage, unadulterated happiness, and crippling loneliness. In late 2012, she embarked on her first solo U.S. tour, and currently continues to tour Europe and the U.S. in anticipation of Fourth Corner’s 2013 release.
