20 year-old Xavier Darcy, a half-French half-British singer-songwriter, currently based in Munich, is currently one of the most exciting new acts in Germany.

Marrying the introspective lyrical observations that are typical of folk singer-songwriters with anthemic and epic melodies and sounds, Xavier Darcy's music is emotionally charged. The feeling he puts into his songs is clearly audible in his unique, immediately recognisable and powerful voice.

In February 2015, under the name of Darcy, he released his début EP, simply titled “Extended Play”. The EP gained widespread attention. The song “Cape Of No Hope” had national radio airplay, and was selected by Bayern 3 DJ Mathias Mathuschek as one of his favourite tracks of the year. It was subsequently included on the Sony Music Compilation “Matuschke's Lieblinge”.

Xavier Darcy also had a variety of TV appearances in 2015, most notably on the primetime talk show “Ina's Nacht” (ARD), where he performed “Cape Of No Hope” live. In November he was selected by Rea Garvey to be a guest on the pilot of new Pro7 primetime TV show “Mein Song – Deine Chance”, where he rewrote Garvey's hit “Oh My Love”.

Darcy is also a tireless live performer, travelling constantly to play numerous support and headline shows across Europe. Whether performing solo or with his brilliant backing band, Xavier's concerts are always an experience full of emotion, power, and fun. The folky guitar rhythms of his songs manage to get everyone up and dancing, whilst his melancholic lyrics and heartfelt delivery tug at the audience's heartstrings.

In October 2015, Xavier Darcy released his second EP, predictably titled “Extended Play II”. Whereas the sound of his first release was somewhat more restricted and toned down, Xavier and his new producer Tobias Siebert (And The Golden Choir, Enno Bunger, Juli) developed a much larger sound for EP II. His sophomore EP was definitely grander, bigger, and more emotionally charged than its predecessor. Again, the single “Orléans” gained widespread attention, receiving airplay across Germany.


The Munich based singer-songwriter used the stage name “Darcy” until early 2016, when he decided to start making music under his real name. 2016 will also bring Xavier Darcy's debut album, which he is currently working on, and will be released in the second half of the year.
