When I saw her and her family walk into Alley Taps to take part in the Heart Songs Corporation and Center Stage Magazine Independent Artist Showcase, I knew that Lexi James was going to ignite the entire audience.

From her show outfit to her hair and makeup, James looked ready for a good time with fans. I knew immediately that this girl had some sass and fire within her. Before her performance, we sat backstage for an interview. 

Without hesitation, James jumped right into my world of "crazy" and made the interview fun. I could not help but notice how amazing she looked and needed to tell her. As most of you know, I am just not good at being girly, and this artist was simply stunning. Her makeup and hair were done beautifully and I actually thought someone did it for her. Clearly, she is talented in more than just her music. When combined with her jaw-dropping outfit, I knew that the fans would be eating out of her hands.

While chatting with James backstage, I asked her about music. With her latest single release "The Night Is Young", we joked as that title was perfect for the moment we were in. She excitedly announced that she would be singing her new song during her performance, so I could not wait to see her on stage.

It was easy to see the passion James has for her career. Taking each aspect of her music seriously, James has been able to create a brand all her own. Her look, her sound, and her stage presence were flawless. With her amazing band behind her and a microphone stand that screamed elegance, James set the entire crowd on fire in a high energy performance and left everyone wanting more.
