In the early 2000’s, founder Nathan L. Samuels was exploring new worlds of sound that didn’t conform to common ways people describe music. The end result was XIV: a dark and melodic blend of live and electronic sounds combining elements of trip-hop, downtempo and jazz. Sultry vocals by Kelly Samuels and Shani Ayanna, weave seamlessly into a rich tapestry of hypnotic melodies, throbbing beats and deep, driving bass lines by Tony Sandoval. With the release of their third album Iota on See Through Records, XIV has taken their unique sound even further, garnering spots in film soundtracks and thrilling audiences with multimedia live performances from the Belly Up Tavern to the Northern Nights Music Festival. Their new album Kappa takes their trip-hop sound to a whole new level, incorporating violin, saxophone and MC Peace Be Free. XIV has received critical acclaim for their visually stunning music videos 'Silver Rays' and 'Breakdown'. With their renewed contract with See Through Records, there is much more magic to come from this ever-growing collection of artists.
