Shoreditch Unsigned with XSARA (pronounced Ex-sar-ruh), is a new show covering the best unsigned music from England. Covering all genres, her show is every Friday at 12pm (or midday for those not familiar with the 12-hour clock) to kickstart the upcoming weekend. Every week features a special guest artist playing exclusively live in session and being interviewed.

XSARA spent her younger years of childhood in Mississippi influenced by the Blues running around barefoot, going to an all African-Caribbean school. She then moved to England, where she found her musical calling and an English accent. She learnt the flute classically, discovered a talent for singing and taught herself how to play the piano. Music was her escape when growing up in care and ever since, music has been a release for XSARA’s strong emotions, odd humour, and deep thoughts.

XSARA has been played on local BBC Introducing eight times, her catchy songs praised by a number of publications including Q magazine, The Unsigned Guide, and Computer Music Magazine. XSARA’s talent has led to her to being featured on radio stations across the UK, playing at Latitude Festival and being positively critiqued by leading music blogs.

XSARA already has five releases to her name with three currently available to buy online.
