"Your heart is the key to everything”

When writing a story there’s a million different plot points that I consider. I visualize life in a similar manner, there are countless hurdles, climax points, changes in perspective, and unfortunately expectations to meet. My life is another story that I’m writing day by day, and with my stubborn faithful heart, I will die with a fat smile on my face.  

Borinqueño, Xavier Bernazard is a latinx. non-binary indie-pop  artist born & raised in Caguas, Puerto Rico.   Surrounded by an Afro-Caribbean sound, fascinated by the growing musical trends in the States, and trained classically. Most of their music is influenced by alternative rock and pop punk bands such as My Chemical Romance, Paramore, The All American Rejects and Evanescence. Pop icons such as, Lady Gaga, Pink, & Adele.  Xavier would describe their music as “emotional & raw exploring themes of reflection, heartbreak, battles with depression, and general angst.”

Xavier is currently working on their first EP “Anastasis”, which will be released in 2021. The concept of this records plays with the idea of resurrection and reinventing yourself after being brought down by circumstances in life. They hope that their music serves as a “source of inspiration for anyone who feels that their voices are not being heard and that it empowers experimentation with one’s identity.”
