In a mainstream market brimming with glossy production and hollow messages, Portland’s Alexa Lux is a breath of fresh air on the pop music scene. Noted as a "very talented artist with a great voice" that "instills the spirit of Aretha Franklin" by Jamie Funk of Divide and Conquer Music, her signature alt-pop/soul style was forged by blending broad influences like jazz, classic rock, top 40 pop, & RnB to name a few - while tying everything together with deeply personal lyrics and a seriously powerful vocal delivery. Listen to her debut EP, “Prologue”, here.
Alexa was born in San Francisco but spent most of her upbringing in a small town in southern Oregon. Always feeling like a city kid caged by her circumstances, she found that singing was the only thing that made her feel at home - but it wasn’t until she moved to Portland for college that she discovered the true depth of her passion for music.
After studying business for a year and feeling lost without music, she decided to take the leap and pursue her calling. With only a few years of childhood piano lessons and zero formal vocal training to guide her, she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Performance from the vocal jazz department at Portland State.
Now this late bloomer is busy writing songs, playing gigs, and figuring out what it means to be a young artist navigating a world that prioritizes materialism over authenticity. Her dream is simple - be successful by doing you. Spread love, encourage growth, and bring more light into the dark. Join the tribe and shine on ✨✌
