Xaris is a seventeen year old singer-songwriter from Gulf Breeze, FL. You may know her from season 13 of NBC's "The Voice". She has been singing since she was very young and started writing music at 8, when she first picked up a guitar. The guitar hooked her and brought her into the world of performing. Since then she has added many other instruments to her repertoire, some including ; Piano, Ukulele, Banjo, Penny Whistle, Mandolin, and Harmonica. Xaris is inspired by the folk revolution in the 1960's and her song writing relays that. Her dream is to be able to travel the world, playing music and spreading love wherever she goes. 2017 will be her third year playing the Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival and she is looking forward to playing this year.
