Lex Land is a singer-songwriter and jazz vocalist originally from Southern California currently residing in Austin, TX. She has released two albums with a third to be released in 2017, and was a member of Team Blake on Season 2 of NBC’s The Voice.
Originally aspiring to a career in classical music, Land dropped out of her vocal performance program at a university in Orange, California to pursue her pop ambitions. In 2009, she left Los Angeles to make Austin her home.
Lex began recording her debut album, “Orange Days on Lemon Street” (which critics deemed “a fantastic mix of honey sweet folk and dense, beat driven folk-rock”), at age 19 . In 2011 she followed it up with a more eclectic, electrified, and genre-hopping sophomore record, “Were My Sweetheart To Go.” Both records earned “Best of iTunes” honors and also received several featured song placements on television programs, including “Private Practice”, “Castle”, and “Bones.”
In the midst of supporting her two previously released albums, Lex represented Austin, TX as a Team-Blake-finalist on NBC’s “The Voice” in 2012. She has also been invited to perform multiple times on late night television’s “Last Call with Carson Daly,” as well as over the radio airwaves on tastemaker stations such as KCRW’s venerated “Morning Becomes Eclectic.”
In Texas Lex has truly blossomed- taking the state by storm with her solo Jeff-Buckley-esque cabaret performances, hitting home-runs with her band, or stealing the show sitting in at jazz clubs.
• “When you think ‘singer songwriter,’ ‘fierce’ is not a word that often comes to mind. But there is something slightly fierce about the opening seconds of Lex Land’s new album ‘Were My Sweetheart To Go.’ It’s the track ‘Oh My!’ and it just reaches out and grabs you…”- KCRW – Artist You Should Know
• “She’s a great songwriter. She makes herself very vulnerable and her lyrics are revealing about relationships and all those universal themes we love. She really separates herself from the pack with her demeanor and her lyrics. She’s got attitude, she’s cool.”- Jason Bentley – KCRW
• “When I think of great female artists, past and present, some of the names I think of are Stevie Nicks, Fiona Apple, Patsy Cline, and Ann Wilson. Among that list, Lex Land deserves a spot. Not only is she one of the most underrated artists on the scene right now, but she somehow molds her voice so well, she’s able to sing any and every genre. If I had to put together a soundtrack of my life, Lex Land would be the prominent artist featured on it.” – Sounds That Matter
• “Easily, one of the best singer-songwriters in town right now and one of the finest voices we have ever heard, period. Believe it…”- LA-Underground
• “…give a listen to album standout ‘If I,’ which showcases Land’s subtle-yet-powerful control melody as well as her undeniable vocal prowess.”- KUT – Song of the Day
