Alexis Lynn – Promises
With her debut single “Promises”, available now on all streaming services, 19-year-old Alexis Lynn is showcasing the powerhouse talent that she possesses. With a modern pop/R&B blended with instrumental hip-hop undertones, “Promises” does not disappoint in the dynamics of Alexis Lynn’s powerful presence. Produced in Los Angeles by Daniel Simmons and written by Alexis Lynn and Ele Ivory, “Promises” is also the official debut of Alexis Lynn as a songwriter.
“As a performer, singer, and writer, sharing a part of myself with an audience is nothing new, but releasing music to the public is completely foreign to me,” describes Alexis Lynn.
Proving herself as a force to be reckoned with, Alexis Lynn knows that finding the sound and the right song takes time, but it’s a challenge and a journey that she is excited, prepared and so ready to be a part of.
“For something that feels so long awaited, it’s equally exciting and terrifying letting the world know who I am. There has been so much hard work, dedication and passion put into this single, and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
Noted as “One to Watch” from national music blog “The Reviews Are In,” following her 2017 Indie Week performance, Alexis Lynn knew that now was the right time to finally release her highly-anticipated debut single.
“I’ve been writing a lot over the past year, and the progression of the songs is evident, they get better and better each write, but there was just something about “Promises”. The write itself was so smooth and as soon as I made a demo of it, I just had a feeling. The song just felt so right. I guess when you know, you just know,” says Alexis Lynn.
In 2016, Alexis Lynn was acknowledged as a Top 20 Under 20 Talent during CBC’s Searchlight contest and honoured as a 2016 Fraser Valley award-nominee. Professionally launching her career in 2015, Alexis Lynn made shockwaves in the music industry, winning “Best Original Song” and “Audience Favourite” at The Star Experience Songwriting Competition, chosen as a Top 10 finalist for the “She’s The One” competition held at Ottawa Bluesfest and being chosen as one of ten acts to perform at Launch Festival Vancouver.
Philanthropically, Alexis Lynn places a strong importance on giving back, actively volunteering with The Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Vancouver Downtown Eastside Community.
“The Multiple Sclerosis Society is very close to my heart as my sister was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 2011. MS, is known as a treatable but incurable disease. I think it’s so important to aid research in any way possible to improve treatment options and hopefully one day find a cure,” details Alexis Lynn.
“The Vancouver Downtown Eastside provides support to low-income residents, which is incredibly important to me. I simply think to help someone in need is not the right thing to do, but the human thing to do. Being fortunate enough and having the privilege to be able to give back is something I take advantage of and try to utilize as often as possible.”
Alexis Lynn is no stranger to dedication and hard work. From a young age, Alexis Lynn found her athletic outlet playing soccer and has channeled her hard work ethic into putting her heart and soul into her music.
“Playing competitively at a high level definitely taught me a lot about commitment, self-discipline, the importance of teamwork, and perseverance. The sport itself required a lot of hard work, but the coaches and teams taught me much more about what it means to work hard not only for yourself, but for a greater goal in mind. My parents also made sure I never missed a practice, meeting, or game, that I was otherwise able to be at because they always reminded me to follow through with the commitments I made, explains Alexis Lynn.” “While I may no longer be playing soccer at that level, the life skills it taught me are what gives me the perseverance and determination to share my music.”
With “Promises” now released, Alexis Lynn is back working, and preparing her brand new EP, which is guaranteed to be full of powerful and emotional lyrics, paired with a vibrant, new sound.
“It truly feels like things are finally coming together, and I couldn’t be more excited to see where this journey takes me.”
