Lexi James is a new country-pop singer/songwriter and a national spokesperson for PACER Teens Against Bullying. Dazzling red curls and jewel-blue eyes are what you see; an amazing voice and infectious personality is what you hear; exuberant and full of life is what you feel when you watch her perform. Lexi James is the whole package, winning over audiences wherever she appears. Music has inspired her to embrace her true self and celebrate all that she is and all that she has to offer audiences. Her songs embody a good-hearted nature with an element of sassy dynamism that calls for no apology. With a personality and voice as vibrant as her naturally fiery red curls, Lexi turns challenges into musical messages of empowerment and exuberance.
Born in Massachusetts and a native of Maine, Lexi grew up experiencing the hurt of being bullied year after year, simply for the color of her hair and for her desire to pursue music as a career. The result of such mean-spirited torment was a stuttering disorder. However, Lexi discovered that when she sings, she doesn’t stutter. Therefore, she immersed herself in her music as a way to not only deal with her impediment but to also take a stand against the issue of bullying. With the support of her family, Lexi has proven to naysayers that criticism and condemnation no longer hinders her but instead empowers her. “I think what I’ve experienced has prepared me for my career in an industry that requires a thick skin,” she discerns. “I am not ashamed to be myself, even if that means being different from everybody else.”
Lexi wears her crown of red hair like a red badge of courage, courage to not only be brazenly authentic, but to also motivate her listeners to boldly and fearlessly embrace their true selves and stand up to negativity.
