Alexis Sarah Elizabeth Gomez... wow, she sure has a lot of names! But right now, let's just go with Alexis! She's a six-foot-tall, blonde-haired, Mexican briar! Again, weird right? Yeah, but weird or not, this girl can sing! Alexis grew up in the Dayton area (with a short stint in Michigan) and has been singing and playing music for as long as she can remember. Her dad, brother, and sister are all musicians so she didn't really have much choice in the matter! As she got older, she joined the family band and it wasn't long before she was stealing the show. She plays guitar and piano and dabbles around with a few other instruments to include banjo, bass and drums. That instrumental talent, combined with her clean country vocals has greatly contributed to her success. But, it's also her songwriting that has been noted and recognized these last few years. She's won a number of local contests where she's been given the opportunity to showcase some of her original music. Alexis will tell you, "I have such a blast performing live, but I love getting to play the songs that I write as much as anything!” Influences for her work come from all over country music, but her strongest role models are Martina McBride, Miranda Lambert, Garth Brooks, The Band Perry and Taylor Swift. And you can definitely hear that inspiration from the first note she sings!

Alexis plays with her band, Dayton Lexy, here locally as well as with a variety of bands in Nashville on the legendary Broadway strip. Alexis says, "Playing and singing with so many talented artists in Nashville has helped me so much! I think surrounding yourself with musicians like that really is what will make you a better artist.” But Alexis also believes her faith plays a role. She is a Worship Leader at SouthBrook Christian Church in Miamisburg Ohio, her home church since she was a child. She will tell you, "I work hard at this, but at the end of the day, I know this is a gift that God has given me. I always try to always remember that and thank Him every chance I get!"

Next to music, her passion is Spanish. She loves the language and the Hispanic culture. Alexis is currently a senior at Wright State University, studying to be a Spanish teacher. Alexis states, "As an artist I hope to be able to create music that people want to sing and listen to. I would also love to bring something a little different to country music, which is where I hope to weave some of my Hispanic heritage into my music.”

To showcase her unique and raw talent, Alexis currently travels to Nashville once or twice a month but will be moving down there following her graduation to chase her dream full time in the center of the country music industry! There she plays a variety of clubs but can be seen regularly at the famous Tootsies, Honky Tonk Central and Rippy’s. Be sure to check her schedule and stop by and see her!

I just wanted to let you know that this band isn't local to Cincinnati.
