Sunil Heera, better known by his fastrising alias XO , has had an enviable start to his short career. The hybrid producers genre bending style, has made him shine outright above his bedroom peers. Mixing together his influences of R&B, Hip Hop, electronica and dance, Heera has carved out a sound which is very much his own.
In December 2014 he released his long awaited debut EP “Through The Night” , which was soon chased up with a second instalment entitled “The Ethereal Experience” in the summer of 2015. Both releases were put out independently through his UK label; He Loves You Not Recordings , with no financial input, publisher, PR or plugger. Shortly after the release of his second EP, PRS Foundation (in partnership with Spotify and the Arts Council) announced XO as one of their chosen Momentum Fund artists. Alongside that, he also started taking his hand to produce/write for other acts including JONES , Johnny Rain and previous collaborator Leo Kalyan.
All of which showcase his skill as a producer, a songwriter and a previously unseen side to his capabilities as an artist. Accumulating to new highs with his support, and helping him solidify his rapidly growing fanbase. Combining everything together, 2016 is set to be a very exciting year for XO..
