Xaris is a seventeen year old songwriter from the panhandle of Florida. She has been singing since she was very young and first picked up a guitar at age eight. Her father taught her three chords on an old guitar and she ran with it. Since then, Xaris has added many instruments in her repertoire. Her love for folk music began in middle school. She got a record player and her first album; it was a Peter, Paul, and Mary record. From that her record collection grew and so did her love for music. Now Xaris is writing and performing on the daily. Xaris’s biggest dream is to travel sharing love through music; meeting as many people as she can along the way.
