Spirit of a folk artist.
Heart of an MC.
Pen of a poet.
Escaping the rush culture of downtown Los Angeles in 2017, Palo Xanto journeyed to the high desert of Joshua Tree, CA with an acoustic guitar and a microphone. This move turned into a personal and creative rebirth which spawned into an abundance of new songs and introspective material.
The music can be described as High Desert Blues Rap
The style is acoustic and unplugged and the flow is laid back - part conscious rap, part modern troubadour.
The content of the lyrics includes themes of soul searching, inner reflection, self-affirmation, the questioning of truth, and the occasional reference to cannabis and psychedelics throughout.
Palo Xanto (fka Pic.) has been a key member of various groups and projects since the late 90's, all raw and underground in nature.
Most notably, Bay Area alternative Hip Hop crew Illa-Dapted, and LA dark wave band Pic Vicious. Throughout his career, he has recorded
numerous albums, countless songs, worked with producers from Hip Hop to rock to pop, and been blessed to have shared the stage with artists such as De La Soul, E-40, The Coup, Black Sheep, Girl Talk, LMFAO, Brazilian Girls and many others.
Palo Xanto is his first official solo endeavor with the debut project RAW MAJIK out now on all streaming platforms.
