Speaks and sings around the world about her life with Asperger’s Syndrome
Singer and songwriter Xolie Morra of the Seattle band “Xolie Morra & The Strange Kind” is an active representative of the Autism community, speaking personally about her life with Asperger’s Syndrome. The Seattle Band has gained a musical presence worldwide and has appeared on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Performing with acts such as Crosby Stills & Nash, John Mayer, & the ladies of the 2010 Lilith Fair, the band continues to build a relationship with a broadening global fan base.
Alongside the band’s success, singer/songwriter Xolie Morra Cogley is an open and active representative of the Autism community. She speaks from the heart with a refreshing view of what it’s like to live, work and perform with Asperger’s syndrome.
Xolie (pronounced kS-oh-lee) is also a member of the LGBTQI community and raises awareness about diversity, equality and acceptance of all people. Through grass roots marketing, hard work, dedication, ambition and pure passion for what she does, Xolie has pushed her way past a range of boundaries to inspire everyone to do what they love.
Each of her speaking performances is customized, and can include her multi-layered story of getting diagnosed with Asperger’s, how she has found creative and often exceptionally humorous and memorable ways to express herself (with both music and the spoken word) and how we can all live more creatively and with more tolerance.

“We were all blown away by Xolie’s performance. Many colleagues came up to me afterwards to share how they found it very moving and inspiring. Her session was a great way to end our month-long celebration.” –Everhear Speech & Hearing clinic
