Meet 19-year-old vocalist and multi-instrumentalist LEx Lidia. LEx melds jazz, hip-hop, and soul influences in a sound that is as dynamic and inspired as LEx himself. Deriving from the Greek root “Lex” meaning strong, savior, and “Lidia” meaning noble, wise one, LEx Lidia’s self- appointed artist name represents all that he hopes to accomplish in his career. He is embracing the dualities within himself— and in his vocals— to create a genre-defying sound rooted in storytelling and authenticity. Utilizing hip-hop beats and pop vocal melodies sung in English and Spanish, LEx’s music transcends both genre and culture.
LEx was born to Mexican parents in San Diego, CA. Heavily influenced by Southern California and his Latino heritage, LEx discovered a passion for hip-hop, reggaeton, and soul music at an early age. He first began singing in his school choir and later joined an acapella group in junior high. It was there that LEx discovered a passion for performing. Now a self-taught producer, engineer, and seasoned musician in his own right, LEx has spent the past few years refining his sound, all the while continuing to experiment with harmony and melody. With a cultural and musical background as diverse as LEx Lidia’s, it comes as no surprise that the rising artist would so masterfully blur the lines between music, culture and language.
