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.
In Texas Lex has truly blossomed- taking the state by storm with her solo Jeff-Buckley-esque cabaret performances, hitting home-runs with her many full-band iterations, or stealing the show sitting in at jazz clubs.
