Live at thousand island, Highbury
For Trixie Whitley, her sophomore release represents an introspective expedition into the depths of her creative identity. Porta Bohemica cribs its name from a defunct European railroad. Its songs wind through landscapes of absolute subconscious that she learned to trust by largely self-producing the album.
“The metaphor of an old train line feeds something in my imagination. I related to that sense of travel when making this record. It involved letting go of my past to embrace my individuality as a young woman and as an artist,” the Brooklyn-based musician says.
From a very young age, Trixie Whitely nurtured a singular creative spirit, springing from her restless inner directive. At the ripe age of three, she made her onstage debut alongside her father, the internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Chris Whitley. Never relying on her lineage, Trixie set out to craft a unique personal and artistic identity. She started playing drums when she was ten. At age eleven she became the youngest resident DJ in Belgium, spinning underground electronica, free jazz, ambient instrumentals and hip-hop at raves and modern art museums. By her early teens she was touring with several avant-garde theater and dance collectives throughout Europe, including Les Ballets C de la B, with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
