LEXIS is a currently "unsigned and totally DIY" (as stated on her Facebook page) singer songwriter from Solihull, West Midlands, England. Her real name is Kimya Tarr, taking the name LEXIS from a derivative from the Greek word for "of, or for words", that being Lexicon. Playing an Alternative style music with Ambient and Persian influence she is destined to be a unique performer.
Her latest single "Back To The Start" has just been released on iTunes and you can also find her previous single, "Flame". LEXIS was born of Persian parents growing up in the 80s, and learning classical piano and guitar while scanning her parents' record collection of Fleetwood Mac and Queen amongst others.
On listening to the two tracks available you can easily pick up on the Fleetwood Mac influence on "Flame" as well Classical and Eastern elements. On "Back To The Start" it sounds more ambient and with the vocals ranging from an Amy Winehouse, Duffy and Lily Allen.
The vocals are pure, sultry and sweet, with only these two tracks you can hear the talent emerging from this bright prospect. Working on her E.P. currently and after winning a songwriting award judged by K.T. Tunstall (whom her style does resemble when seeing her live) she attracted attention from Warner Music and Island Records so she enrolled at the Institute of Contemporay Music Performance in London. Look forward to the E.P. as I would love to hear more songs, I am sure this is the start of a long, successful career!
