Priscillia Xavier LIVE at La Bodega (Telawi, Bangsar)

Influenced and hugely inspired by the likes of Jeff Buckley, Alicia Keys, Alanis Morissette and Alex Vargas; Priscillia Xavier now sings with a flair for Soul-Rock, R&B and Indie Jazz whilst dabbling in other genres that inspire her music.

Fusing in a lot of heart and her knack for music-storytelling, she's also known for her diverse song repertoires that usually come with unique re-interpretations and mash-ups. When she isn’t gigging in her home-city (Kuala Lumpur), this songbird can be seen playing shows across Southeast Asia, including Singapore, Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City.

One thing’s for sure; Priscillia Xavier brings in a whole lot of energy and soul onto any stage that she graces. Catch her show and you’ll get to know that every performance comes with an experience guaranteed to take you through an eclectic musical ride.She'll be backed up by some of her very talented friends: Jay-r Yong(Guitar), Ashwin Gobinath (Drums), Zaim Zaidee (Bass).
