Blessed with musical talent from a legendary Tobago Music Dynasty, XAV (fka Xavier Edwardz) has been creating a unique brand of music designed to uplift, soothe, entertain, and awaken the consciousness of a broad, diverse audience in Tobago, Trinidad, and around the world.

Having achieved early acclaim with awards such as the 2019 Tobago Youth Award and National Youth Award for music and the 2020 Boom Award for Best Hip Hop Song, his current focus is on continuing to produce new innovative sounds and inspiring lyrics that can be shared across the nation, the region, and select overseas markets.

XAV traces his lineage back to the West African country of Benin and as he grows in his artistry, he incorporates more elements of African consciousness, African Love and African sounds in his art.

His unique musical talent and beautiful personality has him poised to become a truly iconic artist emerging out of the Caribbean.
