In August 2012, Lexi moved to Nashville where she graduated four years later from the prestigious Belmont University with a BA in Audio Engineering. She credits her time as an intern with Grammy and Emmy award-winning producer/engineer, Jamie Tate, at The Rukkus Room as being the highlight of her college career. While a student at Belmont, Lexi penned and released a bone chilling country ballad in 2015, “Roses”, that chronicled her friend’s struggle with depression and thoughts of suicide. Lexi reunited with her former boss, Jamie, in December 2021 to record four songs, including the first single, “Ghost Town” that was released on February 25. The song tells an eerie story about the ghosts and spirits in New Orleans while featuring amazing percussion that captures the essence of the city. It was written with the duo, Carvin Walls. The song has also been selected to be part of the book release, Guiding Spirits, that shares stories of NOLA.
The word small being mentioned in the same sentence as the name Lexi Lew is a confusing contradiction of epic proportions. Having grown up on a small farm in a small town in Middle Georgia, Lexi is your quintessential “ big fish from a small pond” swimming around in Nashville, Tennessee, chasing dreams among those dancing neon lights. As if that wasn’t enough, she stands an unassuming 5’ tall with her feet measuring at a size 4.5. Man, that’s really small.
Nothing about this boomtown invites anything small to stay, let alone thrive. So why is Lexi Lew still standing? Why do people stumble upon a show and are immediately drawn to stay? Because when she steps to the mic and lets those larger-than-life vocals fly big things begin to happen.
Today, Lexi is a seasoned performer and a beloved staple on Nashville’s Lower Broadway live music scene with her perfect pairing of personality and versatility.

Her stylistic approach to the arrangement and vocalizing of familiar songs paves the way for memorable, original performances every night.
Even with footprints as small as hers, this southern spitfire has already carved an impressive path in Music City. With a consistent presence at well-known live music staples like George Jones, The Stillery and Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville, Lexi also hits the road for consistent runs in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Chicago. So whether you catch her on Lower Broadway in Nashville or in your hometown, you’ll want to take a seat and sit a spell. This small town girl with the big voice and the bold dreams has a gigantic future just waiting around the bend.
