AT ONLY 18 YEARS OLD-
With a talent for writing music, playing piano,
and singing, Alexis Lynn shines.
Acknowledged as a Top 20 Under 20 talent in the 2016 CBC Searchlight Contest, 2016 Fraser Valley Award Nominee, Alexis Lynn, is making waves in the music industry even before the official release of her music. Following her 2017 Indie Week performance, Alexis was noted as “One To Watch” from Toronto music blog, “The Reviews Are In.” Singing since she was a toddler, Alexis professionally launched her career in 2015 winning “Best Original Song” and “Audience Favourite” at The Star Experience Songwriting Competition. On the heels of her win, Alexis was a Top 10 finalist for the “She’s The One” competition held at Ottawa Bluesfest and was one of ten acts chosen to perform at Launch Festival Vancouver in 2015.
Pairing pop songs with an urban R&B sound and soulful lyrics, Alexis crafts songs with a goal to resonate with all listeners. Alexis is active in her Surrey, BC community and holds her work with The Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Vancouver Downtown Eastside Community near to her heart. Dividing her time between Los Angeles, Toronto and Vancouver, gathering inspiration through her travels and working with noteworthy LA- based producers, 2018 will be Alexis’s biggest year yet, bringing a new sound, a debut single and EP to a music industry that can’t wait for her official arrival.

“Indie Week continued on Thursday night as we hit the Supermarket to see more talented women show Toronto music fans what they’ve got.
The M88 Entertainment Group showcase had a stacked bill which had us stopping in to check out Amanda Jordan, Alessia Cohle, and Alexis Lynn. It was fantastic to see more women on stage, and experiencing their sets.
Alexis Lynn, all the way from Vancouver, BC was our last Indie Week act of the evening. The teenaged singer/songwriter brought her pop/R&B vibe to the stage and showed off what she’s got in a strong way.
Already tabbed as a top 20 under 20 talent in the 2016 CBC Searchlight Contest, the 18 year old showed all of the confidence you’d ever hope to see from a teenager on stage. And while she admitted that she’s most comfortable on the keys, she stripped it down to play her own acoustic guitar and didn’t miss a beat.
Alexis Lynn told the Toronto crowd that she’s working towards an EP release sometime soon, and to be honest, it won’t be soon enough. The power and smoothness in her voice was attention grabbing, and when she announced that she was going to play a cover by one of her favourites, nobody should have been surprised when she started singing Alicia Keys’ Fallin’.
Original songs like Same Girl, That Kiss, Even Friends, and I Love You I Do, all worked to show off what she’s got ready to share with the musical world. And her closing number, Promises, did an excellent job of wrapping things up in style.
Alexis Lynn, along with her guitar/keys/beats player Caesar, brought a groove that people danced and bobbed and rocked to from start to finish.
She’s one to watch.”
