“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.”
LISTED IN THE TOP 20 UNDER 20 in the 2016 CBC Searchlight Contest !
2015 has been a defining and hectic year for Alexis. Since dedicating all of her time to her passion for music, she was chosen to perform at Launch Vancouver, was a top 10 finalist for the “She’s the One” competition held at Ottawa Bluesfest, and entered her first original song “Weak” into a competition called The Star Experience. At this competition, Alexis was honoured with a double win – “Best Original Song” and “Audience Favourite”. Since that time, Alexis has continued to write and create music and will be releasing her first EP in 2018.
Her love of music started young and she has been singing since she could speak. Starting vocal lessons in 2009 with Dallas Smith, she is currently working with Warren Dean Flandez and Kristen Biegel of Studio Cloud 30 and with Darcy Deutsch and Lisa Witt of the Darcy D Music Group in Abbotsford.
In 2013, Alexis started taking piano lessons with Lisa Witt and now accompanies herself on keyboard wherever she plays.
