Saturday, June 9: Lex Allen

Lex Allen performs Saturday, June 9 on the Miller Lite Mainstage.

Neo Soul Pop artist Lex Allen shook the world with his gender-bending music video for his single ‘Cream & Sugar’, which was predominantly recognized by Afropunk.

Not only is the city of Milwaukee recognizing Lex Allen’s powerful music, but inclusive publications such as EarMilk, Fake Shore Drive, and even nationally renowned Impose Magazine, are also fond of him.  Paste Magazine placed “Mama’s Boy” on the “Best of R&B and Soul 2017” list.

More recently, DJ Booth named Allen one of the “10 Phenomenal Queer Artists That You Need To Hear.”

Milwaukee has a special place in its heart for Lex Allen.  Lex was recently named one of 5 Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Bands to watch in 2018.  He is also representing the LGBTQ community with the new ‘Colors In Bloom’ campaign, reminding youth that they are worthy and loved.

He’s taken the stage at Milwaukee’s own PrideFest for the past 3 years with energetic shows to performing the inaugural 2018 Pride Night for the Milwaukee Bucks (NBA). On a national level, Lex has performed for Red Bull’s ‘SoundSelect’ (supporting Big Freedia), and Summerfest, the world’s largest music festival.

Lex’s fearlessness and wide vocal range emulate in his solo work. He is an empowering and fun-loving singer with infectiously danceable and lyrically relatable music.

His dramatic and theatrical stage presence is sure to entertain audiences of all kinds. Lex engages with his audience on a personal level. His engagement and addicting persona have given him regional, and national attention for his relatively short tenure as an artist. Lex strives to grow this momentum to an international stage.
