Hear about new releases, performances, and every now and then, my “thought of the moment"–be it curious, humorous, witty, wise, or moving.
Xtine’s upbeat, original (alternative/folk) sound — with captivating, sometimes playful, often deep, always inspiring lyrics — is joined by the whole band energy and talent of Giuseppe Pescrilli (guitar and mandolin), Lorenzo Iacovone (percussion), Michelangelo Attardo (drums), Alessandro Anastasi (bass guitar), and Chris Gentes (saxophone). Recorded, produced, and mastered by Damiano Magliozzi of Centro Musicale Soundy.
Inspired, written, and recorded in the heart of Tuscany, in Siena, Italy.

People think I write songs. But it would be more accurate to say that songs come to me, and I ‘catch them.’ I enable them to reveal themselves.
