LEXINGTON

BandRockMetal

Stylish but tough as nails cutting edge, female fronted hard rock group.

Biography

Welded together in 2003, Lexington has formed a niche as a stylish but tough as nails cutting edge rock group. From their Los Angeles base, the group recently released their first album "1st and LEX" and music video "Drowning". A DVD with 5.1 Surround Sound and symphony versions of selected tunes is in the works. Driven by MTV commericals, Lexington's powerful performances draw crowds of teens coming to see this new band at their favorite local venue.

December 2004 saw the departure of vocalist Daphna Dove who joined the cast of CBS-TV's "Rockstar: INXS" in pursuit of becoming thier lead singer. Lexington's original female vocalist, Darice, rejoined in 2005 to complete the group's debut album.

Lexington's four corners are Darice (vocals), Paul Jaeger (bass), Dave Comer (guitar) and Chad Clark (drums). Youthful but estabilished in their own right, each member brings together an unusually well rounded list of talents. From album and video production, to efficient business strategies, intense writing and even steel fabricating their own stage designs, Lexington creates a rare self-contained hard rock machine.

The band's music is haunting, yet lyrically finds resolution to the dark sonic imagery. "Drowning", Lexington's latest video, searches the soul's deepest depths in an effort to calm ones inner voices. Teens relate closely with other Lexington tracks such as "Nag", "Violent" and "Comfortable" finding parallels in thier own turbulant youth.

Determination defines Lexington as a band that works hard and plays harder.
