Check Out LexC’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to LexC.

Hi LexC, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
At 3 years old, I began singing and got my start in my grandparents’ church in Delaware. I started writing poetry at 8 and quickly transitioned into writing songs soon after.

I took piano lessons very young as well, at about 7 years old, but due to the military service of my parents, we were relocated from Virginia to Texas. A new piano teacher was found for me, but I didn’t enjoy lessons as much and decided not to continue.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved music and loved singing, but I didn’t make my talents publicly known until 7th grade, which is when I began to sing for school talent shows and national anthems for sporting events!

In middle school, I used a laptop with a built-in microphone and some pluggable earbud headphones to record 2 albums, which I sold to classmates and teachers for $5. Two albums, both 15 tracks each, and I only sold my albums for $5.00!

In high school, I made up my mind that I wanted to pursue music seriously and planned to go to school for music. I decided on the Art Institute of Atlanta and graduated with a bachelor’s in audio production in 2016.

My thinking was that I knew I loved singing very much, but I also understood that I needed to learn as much as I could about how music is made, and the Art Institute was the perfect place to do that. I studied audio engineering for in-studio recording, music business, the science of sound, music theory, live sound, etc. I learned about every application of sound and how I could make money in multiple settings.

What helped me most, however, is the skill of audio engineering, which allowed me to find work in recording studios. During down-time at the studio, I was able to record myself and build my catalog. Recording costs are some of the most expensive things artists will have to pay for, but because I learned how to record myself I saved myself a lot of money!

I’ve been creating music and helping others to nurture their own sound along the way!

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It hasn’t always been a smooth road. Just the decision to go to an art school alone caused some divide between myself and my dad for a bit. We eventually got over that hurdle.

Once I moved to Atlanta, I’ve gone through things such as being scammed out of money, not being paid for sessions I’ve worked on or songs I’ve written for others, and I’ve been denied certain opportunities because I didn’t want to conform to industry norms, which end in certain favors and acts being done.

I’ve had plenty of struggles including mental by way of doubting my own talents and feeling as though I’m moving much slower than some of my peers, but I keep going somehow. I just try to remember that daily deposits add up to a big bank in more ways than just money!

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am an artist (singer, rapper, and songwriter), audio engineer, model, vocal coach, and actress. I specialize in singing, mainly R&B vocal singing style. I’m most known for my singing voice and have been compared to the likes of Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, Keri Hilson, etc.

I’m most proud of continuing to persevere despite all my doubts and despite how slowly or quickly I feel I’m moving compared to others. I’ve figured out how to remain focused on my own path, and even though I do very much get jealous of the progress of others I still only compare my progress to previous achievements of my own.

What sets me apart from others is simply that they’re not me, and I don’t want to be like anyone else. I take inspiration from those who have come before me, and I take motivation from my peers who are pursuing similar goals as me.

But, I’m none of those people, and I have the unique opportunity to engineer my own reality, as we all do!

What matters most to you? Why?
What matters most to me is to be able to create what I want in the way that I want. This is important to me because I have many ideas that I want to express in the ways that I see fit.

I don’t like being too influenced by outside sources because it can taint my original thoughts. Something I’ve spent a long time developing within myself is the strength to trust myself and my thoughts. It’s important to me that I continue to build trust in myself.

It’s necessary to gain what success looks like for me!
