Is there a cancellation fee?
Nope, none at all. We see this residency as a month-to-month flow. If you won’t need the space for a few months, that’s fine, just don’t pay for another membership. Whenever you’re ready to use The Xove again, you’re welcome to pay for another membership for the upcoming month or book one of our rooms on an hourly basis, as you need.
Why is The Xove & its residency program dedicated to womxn | non-binary Black, Indigenous, WOC music artists?The Xove itself was created & founded by Xolisa Jerome, a Toronto based emcee, singer & producer who identifies as a Black woman herself. In her own lived experiences as a woman and a Black music artist over the past 7+ years, it’s become clear the unique obstacles and challenges that are still very much present for artists of colour, specifically women - making it additionally challenging & complex in an industry that already holds its own challenges for independent music artists period. The Xove has been & continues to be both a solution & a resource for artists who face similar challenges & complexities in being women & being Black women, as well as women of colour.
What if I don’t identify as a woman of colour? Does that mean I cannot use the studio?No. The Xove welcomes all music artists of all identities into its space for the purpose of creating, developing & nurturing their music careers. Our studio also holds an unwavering dedication to providing space & accessibility to women | non-binary Black, Indigenous, WOC music artists & will continue to create separate opportunities, points of accessibility & resources dedicated exclusively to those groups. The Build | Nurture residency is one of those opportunities & points of accessibility exclusively for women | non-binary Black, Indigenous, WOC music artists. Those who do not identify with those groups are & will continue to be welcomed to utilize The Xove on a non-member/non-residency basis. Please refer to our hourly studio rates here.
