He did not want anything to with it but after a few days he decided to learn how to play it in hopes to fulfill its use instead of letting it sit there, After 2 months of practicing he found himself to love playing.
He is self taught on all the varieties of instruments he plays. in 2010 he recorded tidbits of his songs on his phone that he wrote in the past to let out the personal connections between his present day and his past. He is heavily influenced by Alexi Murdock, Nick Drake, and The Weeping. Following his dreams, Exzavier continued writing and wrote short poems on his past times.
