April Featured Performer: Destiny X

destiny X is a singer and songwriter living in Philadelphia, PA. Penning honest lyrics with a plaintive and melodic voice, her 2018 EP, Chai, feels like a languid summer afternoon recounting the transition between love and loss with that friend you see only on blue moons. X brings the same cosmic emanation in her most recent EP, Moon Room, 2021, giving listeners an intimate look into what's been on her mind. Influenced by the music and careers of artists like Brandy, Thom Yorke and Sade, Destiny has been fusing her mellow tone with experimental Soundcloud tracks from as early as 2015.
