Trixie Whitley

Hear a Live Friday Free At Noon Concert at 12noon ET from WXPN and NPR Music Broadcast Live Fridays from the stage this week World Cafe Live in Philadelphia

Daughter of Chris Whitley and vocalist for the band, Black Dub, Trixie Whitley steps out with her debut album Fourth Corner. She plays a full show at World Cafe Live, Philly on Friday night and joins us at 12pm for an XPN Free At Noon.

At 25, Trixie Whitley is already a veteran of the music industry, touring the world with her father, singer-songwriter Chris Whitley, as a child and establishing her jazz and alt-rock tendencies with her first EP, Strong Blood, in 2008. Also no stranger to the world, the Belgian-American Whitley quickly became known as the youngest resident DJ in Europe growing up, spinning records in Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris and New York City. Recognition of Whitley grew to international status after she toured with Daniel Lanois's Black Dub in 2010 and 2011.

Since then, Whitley has created a buzz in music circles with her massive voice and multi-instrumental talent, taking the stage at SXSW, Bonnaroo and Celebrate Brooklyn last year. Trixie has recorded three EP’s of her own music – including Live at Rockwood Music Hall. Her solo EP, Fourth Corner comes out January 29, and she'll play a full show at World Cafe Live on Friday night, February 1!
