XOXO

XOXO

Keenan Jenkins’ musical career began during his Ph.D. studies at UNC-Chapel Hill, where he played open mics and local showcases between long days on the third floor of the psychology building. By the time he’d finished his degree, drained and discontent, his musical moonlighting had meanwhile bloomed in full color. He took the cue and dove headfirst into the rich music scene in Carrboro, NC.

Jenkins now performs as XOXOK, crafting atmospheric soul music that is conceived on the fretboard, cultivated at the microphone, and cradled in headphones. The guitar and vocal influences are far-flung, but cohesive—see Jeff Buckley, Moses Sumney, and Anna Calvi, among others. His live performance is a model of intimacy and presence; armed with “sweet, ringing vocals” (Queen City Nerve), XOXOK delivers impassioned songs with unabashed conviction.

XOXOK’s debut EP Worthy is both a lush soundscape and an exercise in growth. On the opening track, “Nancy, M.D.”, he declares, “I need you / more than your patients will ever need you as their medic”. However, by the final song (the title track, “Worthy”), he has changed his tune: “I don’t need you to love me / I just want to be worthy”. JOINING is will be Stardust Cellars.

Xaris Waltman

Sounds and Grounds presents

Ticketed event. Music starts at 7:00 PM. The pours will be provided by our friends over at Granite Falls Brewing Company. Follow our event and Facebook pages for updates!

Xaris Waltman (Xaris Waltman Music) picked up a guitar for the first time; at the young age of eight. Her poems and short stories she was writing at that point then turned into songs, not long after learning those few chords. Waltman has been referred to as an old soul because her love for folk music and keeping traditional ballads alive, began in only junior high. The romance began with a "Peter, Paul, and Mary" album. Not long afterwards Xaris began looking up to many folk groups from the folk-revolution in NYC during the 1960s, as well as traditional American folk ballads of the 19th century.

Touring, Xaris mostly performs solo. Just a young girl and her guitar playing a mix of old folk songs and original tunes. People have compared her voice to the likes of Allison Krauss, EmmyLou Harris, Abigail Washburn, and Joni Mitchell. Adam Levine compared Xaris to Dolly Parton during her time on NBC's "The Voice" Season 13 in 2017. Since "The Voice" Xaris has spent time traveling and touring the country solo; playing festivals and small venues, clubs and radio stations, listening rooms and house shows. Traveling and creating music is Xaris's biggest dream next to keeping American folk traditions alive. She hopes to share love through music with everyone she meets. She is currently recording an album with Big Tone Records out of Bristol, Virginia that is set to be released in the summer of 2019.
