UK based artist, composer, and songwriter Xav Clarke’s musical style could best be described as imaginative, playful, and fantastical with a wondering sophistication and curiosity that welcome listeners into his rainbow world of complex sounds, textures, and emotions.

As an artist and musician, Xav produces his unique brand of 70s-tinged psychedelic pop, writing and performing with a handful of bands, as well as on his kaleidoscopic and dreamy debut solo album ‘magic arrow’. Whether scoring for animation, songwriting, or producing his solo work, Xav’s versatile skill and free-spirited nature will always follow where the music leads him.

Xav’s ability to write effortlessly sharp-witted songs and memorable score has been the perfect match for animated series’ such as his organic and inventive take on Apple TV+’s Wolfboy and the Everything Factory, and the Cartoon Network animated series The Heroic Quest of the Valiant Prince Ivandoe.

His other credits include a cinematic score for Cartoon Network’s grandiose sci-fi adventure Elliot from Earth and multiple songs, including the viral ‘Weird Like You and Me’, for the hugely successful The Amazing World of Gumball series.

Away from animation, Xav scored and wrote original songs for the intimate and darkly humorous feature documentary Red Herring, which premiered at this years Sheffield DocFest.
