Xavier Toscano believes that pop music is the soundtrack to our lives. It etches powerful memories in our minds. When you hear a song from your past, it immediately takes you back. Faded, sepia-toned memories rush in with a colorful pop. Xavier’s music is influenced by Top 40 radio and video. He also blends his love of disco, rap, rock, reggae, and R&B with his dancing ability to create a dynamic stage show.
Xavier has performed across the United States and Europe, and continues to entertain locally. He has a strong acting resume as well. In addition to local theater and film projects, he has recorded national commercials for Nextel, NASCAR, Sony PlayStation, and more.
Xavier Toscano’s latest album is the 11-track “Feels So Good”. Xavier is in a complete zone musically as this album is a victory for his talents. Xavier has put together an awesome blend of Pop music throughout as he forges upbeat songs, great lyrics, nice vibes and outstanding instrumentals to go with them.
Xavier Toscano’s music is so different from most of the stuff pounding through the speakers these days. His music allows you to feel good. It is a toe tapping, finger snapping sensation. The mostly synth-based dance music is certainly modern but it has a certain classic quality, especially in the funkier tracks like “Nas-T-Nice” and “Unstoppable Fever”. Toscano is not indifferent to piano-driven ballads either, as he proves with “Castles in the Sky”.
He is however, more than excellent on the songs with fantastic dance and musical grooves like: “Never Wanna Leave”, “Runaway”, “Apologies Wanted” and “Made It Look Easy”. Xavier Toscano represents the new generation of feel good music. This is truly what popular music is supposed to be. His voice is soothing at times, uplifting and soaring at others, but easy to listen to all the time. Some people are born to entertain and Toscano is one of those rare individuals.
“Feels So Good” is a very impressive album from an independent artist. It is apparent that Xavier Toscano has the self-motivation, dedication and talent to capture listeners. Technically the mixing and mastering on this album returns a superbly solid sound, with thumping basslines and kick drums.
I don’t think it’s any secret that mainstream Pop music today is on a downward spiral. I was pleasantly surprised by the lyrical and musical leaps that “Feels So Good” delivers while maintaining a trendy club and dancefloor feel.
If Pop and dance music is your thing, you will absolutely love this album. Xavier Toscano has so much talent it is unbelievable. If you have not heard him before, “Feels So Good” would be a perfect place start!
