It began with one woman’s struggle, a dream, a wish, a vision and is evolving into stardom.
Born Alexis Arielle Adrian Williams, she began to hone her performance skills while in high school. In her senior year, she was hailed “musician of the year” and has been making musical strides every since. It comes as no surprise, since Alexis’ (stage name Elexi) very own mother is also blessed with musical brillance, Lisa Adrian, aka Adrian Fairlight.
Elexi’s mother, Lisa Adrian was formerly in a band with Perri “Pebbles” Reid called Software. The band was disbanded when Pebbles decided to pursue a solo career. She was also on the album cover of Vicious Rumors, Timex social club (but not affiliated with the band).
Lisa was later signed to an artist development deal with TouchTone productions and they did a joint venture with JOE AND HARRY GANTZ to make a music video for her song “Bad Dream”. The video was shot at the Federal Building in San Francisco; a famous landmark. At this time, the Gantz brothers were just starting out but they are now EMMY AWARD WINNING film producers who address very serious topics.
But the dream continues…
Following in her mother’s footsteps, Elexi is forging her own path as an artist. She is determined to be an entrepreneur now that artists are able to create their own businesses and release their own music. Her goal is to be an ENTERTAINMENT ATTORNEY and she is currently attending college to make that dream come true.
Elexi is also steadily building an impressive music career. The Elexi Agenda involves being a POSITIVE ROLE MODEL for girls, women, and all other artists. Advocating for the rights of artists is extremely important to her. She wants to address serious topics like the Gantz brothers do.
Elexi is learning by starting from the bottom and what the process truly entails. She is consistently challenging herself to learn how to be the best Entertainment Attorney, who can help artists at all levels, not just the top. Elexi and Lisa will be the first to tell you that figuring out how to do all this from the ground up has been daunting. There are no clear instructions because technology and the game changes weekly. Lisa has passed on her knowledge to her daughter from her previous experience in the industry and her motto is: YOU HAVE TO MAKE IT HAPPEN!
I feel her fans are really resonating with her because she exudes confidence, empowerment and girl power! Her lyrics are whimsical and fun; they take you through The Masks We Wear (A Mara Prose Poem) as women: “Take that mask off, flick it back, look at it cause it’s gone when I say so…” In recent years, Elexi was invited to perform and record as a featured vocalist on two singles by AM Kidd (who is currently being considered for a grammy nomination) “Due For Love”
and “You Wrote Me”.
GYGG is a fun song for girl bonding. It is all about letting your hair down and having no expectations. I believe we can expect longevity from this talented artist – she is out to change the game and I believe she will do just that. You can follow all her strides at eleximusic.com ~ Mara Prose
