Xs & ARROWs is a trio of native Los Angelenos bound by teenage friendship, a love of Irish rock, and commitment to artistic creation.

The group began as rock n' roll quartet EXIT, playing high-profile clubs such as The Whisky and The Viper Room. In their incarnations with various singers, they have had some truly noteworthy experiences: playing House of Blues Sunset and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, touring the Balkans, even joining U2 on stage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles for a performance of the legendary band's Out of Control.

Today Xs & ARROWs have found their identity fronted by guitarist Courtney Lavender, favouring an acoustic vibe with warm, vulnerable vocals. Their debut EP, From Here, is out now.
