Lexi Todd is a Brooklyn-based singer, songwriter, and soul-searcher. She started singing when she was four years old and hasn’t stopped since. Lexi performed in choirs, a capella groups, and musical theatre productions growing up, and started performing as a solo act at variety shows in high school. Although she started writing songs in middle school, she didn’t begin performing her original songs until she joined her first full band, Chevy Lopez.
A self-defined “gnar&b” band, Chevy Lopez has spent the past seven summers touring heavily up and down the East Coast, giving Lexi the opportunity to hone her live performance and front-person skills, while fine-tuning her distinct sound.
Lexi fuses her contemporary influences---ranging from Hiatus Kaiyote, Emily King, Lake Street Dive, and Phoebe Bridgers---with her go-to icons from childhood, which include Amy Winehouse, Joss Stone, Fleetwood Mac, and all of Motown. The result is jazz-pop, with soulful vocal delivery and a hint of rock-n-roll. A former student of political science, philosophy, and law, Lexi’s lyrics are witty and thoughtful. As a songwriter, she aims to weave those complex lyrics into simple and honest concepts.
A Jersey-shore native, Lexi has kept the beach culture and free-spirited nature of her hometown with her throughout her life, even as she traverses the big city. A dedicated yogi, self-help enthusiast, and women’s rights advocate, she is always trying to better herself, as well as the people and environment around her---something she is constantly striving for in her music. Lexi uses her music to get out her anxieties, document her triumphs, air her anger, and work through her daily trials and tribulations. She also writes about the people close to her in her life, both from their point of view and her own point of view, to bring the healing power of music to those around her.
Lexi released her first solo EP, "Maria, Immured," in October 2018, along with a full length music video available at her vevo page.
