A singer/songwriter, producer, and DJ in no particular order, the 100% Electronica artist is a non-conformist whose many philosophical layers are revealed through both her craft and natural state of being. Following a sold-out tour as support for George Clanton and Magdalena Bay, Vitesse X solidifies her individuality with the lead single and title-track to her forthcoming debut album.
