WE don’t believe in rules…. Rules are limitations placed upon you by others through their own insecurities, fear, and lack of imagination. WE believe in learning the rules of your instrument so you are not bound by those rules, and you are free to create. If you were to ask the other guys in the band what this is to them, you’d probably get 5 different answers: and that’s really the point.
We deal in rock, hip-hop, jazz, funk, reggae, neo-soul, and we play live. We can take to any stage, in any circumstance and do what we do without the aid of a computer. It’s real, and that in and of itself, I believes sets this band apart. Soul has a story to tell, we help him tell it. There are 5 different versions to this story, and what I’ve laid before you is simply how I see it….

DRAMA IN HARLEM
THE FIRST LIVE EP FROM XP
There’s nothing like the live music experience – it will always bring you back to a special place and time. With this live EP, XP is capturing the magic of another electric night in Harlem. Two distinctly different singles showcase the incredible versatility the band is capable of. “Drama” the lead single, is a pop and R&B fusion record that tells the tale of a player in love with too many women. The B-side, “Let a Girl Work” is an energetic funk and rock jam packed full of hip-hop energy. The XPRESIDENTS are craftsmen at bridging the gap between genres & eras and this project is no different.
Recorded Live at Shrine World Music in Harlem, New York on January 25, 2020.
