Xiren is an avid yogi and has an active passion for researching and amplifying practical and under exposed, often suppressed, technologies relating to health and alternative energies and has recently launched a web series called "Know How Things Work".
|In 2008 Xiren was lured on an international con to India (READ: India scam part I | part II) followed by a coast-to-coast US tour which ended abruptly in a catastrophic tour bus accident. By hauling portable recording equipment throughout India and on the bus, he was able to capture the love, grief, rage, sensuality and hope from those experiences and translate them into a scorching pop/rock album. And it’s resonating with listeners. The first single, “Ship of Fools”, held for 6 weeks in the Top 10 on US radio (fmqb.com/Modern AC) against major label artists - extraordinary for an independent artist! Relevance is the quality he’s always enjoyed about great music - the ability to generate an experience that crosses cultures, political and religious perspectives, and always allows whatever interpretation is needed by the listener.|
