Trixie Whitley, "Fourth Corner"
Trixie Whitley will release her eagerly anticipated debut LP, Fourth Corner, in the U.S. on January 29 via Strong Blood Records. Whitley, the daughter of the late acclaimed guitarist and singer/songwriter Chris Whitley, most recently recorded and toured with Black Dub, the band formed by guitarist/producer Daniel Lanois, bassist Daryl Johnson and drummer Brian Blade.
Fourth Corner was recorded in New York with producer/keyboardist Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman, who's also worked with Glen Hansard, Antony and the Johnsons, Grizzly Bear and the National), engineer Pat Dillett (David Byrne, St. Vincent, Mary J. Blige), with string arrangements by Rob Moose (Antony, Bon Iver).
Whitley burst into public consciousness in 2011 as the lead singer of Black Dub, super-producer Daniel Lanois' (U2, Bob Dylan) project, blowing people away with a voice and presence beyond her now-25 years. She has lived a nomadic life: born in Belgium, she split her time growing up there and in New York but also frequently visiting family in France, Texas, and Mexico. Her mother came from an artistic European gypsy family, filled with musicians, painters, writers, and sculptures, while her father, renowned singer-songwriter Chris Whitley, thrust her into the world of music as a toddler when she joined him onstage in Germany at age three.
