Xavier Rudd is a soul surfer and socially conscious musician that has captivated audiences for over twenty years!

 

His lyrically progressive indie-folk has been a vessel for his spirit–narrating the journey of a composer with a gift for channelling lifestyle and conscience into song.

Over the course of nine studio albums, eight live records and countless global touring miles, Xavier has dedicated his life to his art and the worldwide legion of music fans who stand proudly beside him.

Whilst he clearly doesn’t chase it, Xavier has been inundated with critical acclaim and industry accolades over the years.

 

 

From ARIA nominations and Gold and Platinum records at home in Australia, to chart success and arena-sized audiences throughout Europe, Xavier occupies the rarefied stratum of songwriters whose commercial success parallels the vastness of their organic fan base.

 

His discography is distinct and unmistakably Xavier Rudd, yet filled with nuance and ideas that evolve and propagate over time.

 

From the starting point of his 2002 debut To Let, Xavier has gone on to release classic album after classic album:Solace(2004),Food In The Belly(2005),White Moth(2007),Dark Shades Of Blue(2008),Koonyum Sun(2010),Spirit Bird(2012),Nanna(2015) and Storm Boy(2018).

To ponder Xavier Rudd’s contribution to music would simply lead to understatement… his work speaks for itself, and his fans speak louder still.

Nothing compares to experiencing Xavier Rudd in concert though. These three, once-in-a-lifetime, intimate shows right on the beach in the Maldives is such a unique and exciting experience.

Xavier’s music, his message, and the marine environment around him will all come together in stunning synchronicity at Surf Music In Paradise!

 

 

Xavier Rudd is truly at his best on stage in the company of his fans. Humble and grounded, Xavier continues to grow and evolve. Raising awareness of Aboriginal culture, the stories of the Stolen Generation and his own Indigenous heritage, his impact off-stage has been equally powerful.

 

From his earliest days as a sun-bleached surfer crafting a musical aurora from behind a forest of instruments he has developed the most unique Yidaki (Didgeridoo) and percussion kit in the world, evolving over 20 years.

 

Now one of the world’s most important artists, Xavier is both a literal and figurative voice of truth that transcends geography, language and ideology.

Xavier and his family absolutely dig nature, the beach and surfing lifestyle. Surf Music In Paradise is the perfect fit. Xavier is looking forward to sharing a very special week with some of his most devoted fans in the most amazing Maldivian setting.
