Lex Allen Mixes Music in Door County
If you miss Lex Monday November 9 at Sturgeon Bay’s Tambourine Lounge you will be sad. While he has been a great friend to LGBT Door County we never know when or if he will be back. LGBT Door County Presents at 6pm. Find him right after playing his vibes for the Door County soul.
Milwaukee native Lex Allen, is reinventing old soul for a new generation, with his own sound that has been dubbed Soul Pop with a kick. He has been compared to new aged singers John Legend & Justin Timberlake, with the articulation ofie pow inderhouse Jason Mraz. He delivers the writing ability and vocal stylings of a young Bob Dylan, with a smooth delivery reminiscent of a Motown great, Marvin Gaye. Conventional is not a word in his repertoire, just when you think you have him figured out, he’ll switch it up and have your musical ears perking and wanting more. “Dare to be different” is the motto he lives by through and through, its evident in his enlightened lyrical style thats way beyond his years.
Growing up in a very segregated city, with a family of 10 siblings, Lex wanted to find a way to stand out, bridge the gap and escape the future predestined by society; a musical outlet seemed to be the only way. Immersed in the art of lyrical writing, he realized how easy it was for him to emote and connect with a wide range of people, from young to old, black to white, gay to straight. Leaving no room for hidden feelings. He lays it all out on the page, delivering a message of self-awareness, empowerment, and edginess.
