An artist well known for her dynamic flows, aggressive stage presence and elaborate story-telling, Lex Leosis is loud, opinionated, constantly fighting for what she believes in and hungry to make something of her family name. She’s got an attack in her flow, juxtaposed with a finesse in her lyricism and a hunger in her vocal tone. Her family gave her traditions, Toronto shaped her, and California helped form her sound. Growing up in the West End of Toronto with a single mother who worked around the clock taught her discipline, hard work and survival. It gave Lex the energy to perfect her craft, grow her career and exchange stories with artists from all over the world.
From humble beginnings, Lex first found a home in hip-hop at rap competitions and cyphers. She met a number of creatives through online rap communities and has dropped everything multiple times to join her peers in cities all over the U.S. to collaborate, make music and perform. Spending most of her time in the Bay Area of California, Lex has allowed her traveling influences to expand her music sound and capability.
Lex has spent much of the past two years devoting herself to the growth of her hip-hop group, The Sorority. The group made waves with a 2016 International Women’s Day Cypher, and since then have released a debut album to critical acclaim, and toured Canada multiple times, sharing festival stages with many great artists. Despite balancing the group, Lex has been hard at work developing her own music infusing her multiple inspirations, Greek identity, and personal history with her own flavor, and is excited for what 2020 has in store.
Outside of music and performance, Lex regularly works to equip the youth of today with creative tools to develop their own artistry. Lex is a mentor in the Hamilton and Toronto hip-hop communities working as a lead facilitator for youth programs that teach kids to write, rhyme and rap. A unique part of the hip-hop landscape, Lex Leosis is an emcee you won’t forget.
Lobo Lara invites you to a world filled with latin vibes and Cumbia rhythms with a new twist. With the release of his first album “Immigrants” featuring the single “PALETAS.” This single landed him a deal with Americano Label based out of Texas and a remix with Principe Q, son of A.B from the Kumbia Kings and nephew of Legendary Selena Quintanilla. Raised and rooted in Boise, Idaho, this latino artist/ producer spends his time cutting, pasting, sampling and composing world rhythms. His unique style is a collection of sounds that have impacted him throughout his life, using sounds from CUMBIA. I want the people to feel proud and not ashamed that we come from different cultures. Culture is something special that we get to pass on and I think doing it with my music is a perfect way to connect at another level, a level where racism doesn’t exist. Every day I see people choosing sides and we keep dividing each other, with these repercussions I push myself to release music that promotes UNITY.
