Biography

Santa Barbara County and the 805 are the biggest influence on Lexo The Great's sound and drive to hustle as an independent artist. Born from Latin decent, his mother Mexican and father Bolivian. His Latin culture always causes him to explore a wide variety of new sounds and experiment with different genres of music. His eclectic background and heritage proves for his great stage presence and interaction with his crowd.

In 2010 Lexo released 4 mixtapes, 1 Album and several music videos. He also performed along side of LA artists such as Dom Kennedy, Overdoz, Carter and Casey Veggies. Working with his long time engineer Federico “C Sik” Lopez, he has been able to learn from some of the West Coast’s Greats such as Sick Jacken (Psycho Realm), Cynic, Ras Kass, 40 Glocc and Planet Asia.

2011 proved to be a progressive year for Lexo. SXSW 2011 and a So Cal Tour with Rock-Reggae powerhouse Iration definitely allowed Lexo to hit the ground running. The highlight for 2011 was definitely the release of his latest single, 'Another Day' ft. Iration which is available on iTunes. Lexo has also had the opportunity to perform along side several bands and artists such as Mickey Avalon, Iration, Seven Lions, Tomorrows Bad Seeds, The Mike Pinto Band and Pacific Dub. He released his latest EP, 'Keep It Dirty', a Dubstep project produced by Seven Lions on iTunes in August of 2011. The duo did several shows and release parties up and down the coast, catering to the true Dubstep heads and DJ's.

Native Wayne has worked with and produced for legendary artists such as Keith Richards, Jimmy Cliff, Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, 311, Toots and the Maytals, Gregory Isaacs, and his most successful project, No Doubts “Rock Steady” album which earned him 2 Grammys and sold over 3 million records.
