Meteo Xavier, born in 1984, had little interest in music until he discovered Phil Collins, which lead to Genesis, which led to Peter Gabriel and further lead to Steve Hackett. Before that, he took to video game music from George “The Fat Man” Sanger, Nobuo Uematsu and Yasunori Mitsuda before studying Motoi Sakuraba, Yuki Kaijura, and many more to compensate Sevier County, TN’s lack of formal compositional vocation training. Meteo Xavier has been actively working on one project or another since late 2008.
Espers is the first release by independent composer 12 Followers/Meteo Xavier. It features almost a year’s worth of work creating a unique, professional, conceptual album of music on a single computer (two, counting a resounding collaboration with composer Michael Huang), no hardware, and no compromises for the sound it generates. The goal of Espers was to give each song a different world to create, and you a world to explore.
