Remember back when I started BB and I would talk about how cool Poolside was and how they were influencing the music I was listening too? I was such a nerdy fangirl back then!

THE GET BUZZZED ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: XYLØ
Q1. How old were you when you first started making music? When did it become serious?
I didn't start taking music seriously till I was 18 when I started working with Chase. - Paige
I was very young. Our grandfather is a jazz drummer and studio percussionist, he had me on his lap at the drum set since the day I could hold sticks. He gave me one of his drums kits when I was about 9. I remember playing to CDs like Rage Against the Machine, Weezer, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Green Day, Jackson 5, Earth Wind and Fire, Toto, Led Zeppelin.. I had played my first show at 10 and had my first recording session experience at 11 at Capitol Records. At this point I was hooked. I was strictly a drummer until my early 20’s when I got my first laptop and protools. This opened my world up to the possibilities of making music on my own. I eventually got into co-writing songs with artists and making a living getting my songs licensed in commercials and tv shows as well as composing music for adverts and major brands campaigns. This is what lead to Paige and I working together and creating XYLØ. I had asked her to work on a project with me for a brand and our chemistry excited me. Things just seemed to click. Things moved really fast and I ended up dedicated all of my time just to XYLØ. - Chase
Q2. Whether it’s a remix or an original, what is the first step you take when writing a track?
Sometimes it can be different, but usually I start out with chords on the piano and a rough beat. Then melodies ideas. And some ear candy stuff for vibe. Once this is down I feel like this helps with what the lyrics are going to say. The music almost speaks first and tells you what needs to be said and what the songs going to be about. - Chase
Q3. What is one of the best moments you've had so far in your career?
Hearing Zane Lowe premier our song Afterlife was a unforgettable moment. Besides that I think XYLØ in general to me has been the highlight of my musical struggle and journey. This is my baby and it's incredible to see the response we've got so far. I think it's amazing that I get to share this together with my little sister. - Chase
Playing my first live show ever which was with XYLØ about 6 months ago.- Paige
Q4. What is another BUZZZworthy artist that inspires you and why?
Chaos Chaos ‘Do you Feel it’. I really like the sounds and the production. Nice voices. - Chase
Q5. Of all of your releases, which one is your favorite and why?
America just because it was the first song we released a year ago and it's what started it all basically for us. Not knowing what to expect and then hearing it on the radio and #1 on Hype Machine was really exciting. - Chase
L.A Love Song is probably my favorite because I love singing that song live. We were suppose to release a different song originally and then last minute we wrote this one and we were like “ we need to put this out asap” - Paige
