Unashamed and Unafraid: Lexi Weege Brings the Female Energy
Catch the flowing voice of Lexi Weege at a femme-fueled evening at Scotty's Martini Lounge.
Wednesday, Dec. 6
It's not easy these days for female artists. To do what truly moves you, to authentically produce your art is tasking, but that effort itself can be an inspiration for some. There are women who are able to take these imbalances and reflect that energy back to tell their own story, on their terms.
For Massachusetts songbird Lexi Weege, this is where she thrives. Refusing to give in to a space where women aren't recognized when it comes to their music, Weege's website describes her as "passionate, alive, awakened." She lives her narrative as a woman "unashamed of her desires and unafraid to seize control." From her independently-released debut album Virgin in 2013, to her newly released debut album, Marigold, Weege does not disappoint. Her sweet and sultry tones float over the jazz-fortified foundation supplied by the guitarist and bassist brothers known as "the Wondertwins." She brings to the table a passion and talent unrivaled by many men or women.
With a flowing voice that revives a sound similar to that of Stevie Nicks and Janis Joplin paired with a strong blues and jazz influenced foundation, Weege attracts crowds of dedicated fans who can relish in her dedication to her craft. The songstress serves as inspiration in a world where jazz music and lyricism often go unappreciated.
Weege will be performing at Scotty's Martini Lounge on a femme-fueled evening that will also feature the powerhouse duo of Jess Royer and McKenzie Lee Sprague, who front the indie-rock and folk band Cult Classics. Their voices deserve to be heard; their energy deserves to be felt. — Maddie Hepler
