With a passion for music and a proven ability to perform at a pinnacle level, Xavier Riley is making a great impact on today's music scene. A native of Little Rock, Arkansas, Xavier realized his love for music at an early age while being raised in the church. He developed his artistry for sound through self taught means. His first love is and always will be drumming. Playing drums came natural for Xavier as a child; spending hours creating rhythmic sounds around his house, using anything he could get his hands on. Later on, that talent was recognized by his father, and he was given the opportunity to perform publicly in their home church. Over the years, Xavier found his way into studio production; writing and producing music for local artists. Becoming a DJ was a seamless transition. Using his keen sense of rhythm, accompanied by his passion to produce sound, allowed his DJing skills to emerge.
Xavier's musical and scholastic talents earned him a partial scholarship to the University of Arkansas. He studied under the leadership of Dr. Charles Law; majoring in Percussion. During this period, Xavier's talents as a percussionist, as well as a Music Director were sought after by many local, and national artists.
Xavier was the co-founder, and owner of In His Presence Productions, Inc., a Christian production company. Through this venture, he taught percussion basics. Graphic artistry is also another talent that Xavier developed and has grown to love.
While searching for a DJ for his upcoming wedding, Xavier was offered the opportunity to utilize his gifts, talents, and skills as a DJ for the largest entertainment company in Arkansas.
