Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter LEXI TODD is a master of balance.
She heightens an ensemble, but always holds her own. She draws significant parallels between her day-to-day life and the experiences of others. She advocates for her own justice, but can be the voice of justice for other women and artists. She doubles as a music industry maven and performer, uniquely infusing pop, R&B and jazz for a signature brand of smart neo-soul.
Born in New Jersey, Lexi had a natural magnetism to music, vinyl and self-expression. She kept the beach culture and free-spirited nature of her hometown with her throughout her life, even as she traversed to the big city. As an artist, she excels at intersectionality, and has already been showcased at iHeart Radio, chosen as a featured performer at NY Fashion Week, scouted as an official RAW Showcase artist and more.
In October 2018, Lexi released her first solo EP, Maria, Immured. October marks National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and Maria, Immured is a deeply personal collection of songs chronicling a close friend’s battle with abuse and toxic love, and Lexi’s candid role in the experience. While she believes in uninhibited creation, Lexi makes sure to underpin her music with some social responsibility and Maria, Immured was a perfect example of her ability to use her own perspective to illuminate a bigger cause.
As a passionate advocate for wellness, self-care and female empowerment, Todd has been busy collaborating with various self-care and women’s initiative organizations, which has become a major theme in her latest work. With her newest single "Get My Mind Right" Lexi shows a softer side; showcasing her stronger sense of artistic agency. A lush, introspective alternative r&b track, GMMR is about overcoming negative habits and maintaining good vibes.
Overall, her signature smooth and intricate melodies and distinguished perspective on all things life and love makes Lexi Todd an artist of genuine purpose with excellent musicality.
