Lex J Performing at Common Ground

April 22, 2018

The power of your words! I said I was going to have my own set this year at Common Ground Music Fest in Lansing, MI and I am! I am performing July 6th as an opener for Halsey and other great performers! Catch me on the Sparrow stage.

2017 Music Festivals

September 16, 2017

On July 10th, for the second year in a row, Diamond Jones played at the Common Ground Music Fest amongst artists such as Twista, Fetty Wap and Big Sean. And, again, I was able to sing alongside him. 

Shortly after, On September 16th, we performed for Prime Fest at it's debut in Lansing, MI. 

2018 goals, have my own set at either of these and more!

Opening For KR in Chicago

On March 24th, 2017 I was lucky enough to open up for hip hop artist and songwriter KR at Subterranean in Chicago. This was my first show in Chicago since showcases I performed in, in undergrad at Columbia College. Although I was super nervous, it turned out to be soooo good! I received nothing but positive feedback despite being my own dj. I connected with a lot of cool people including KR himself. This show showed me what other singers in Chicago have been telling me, just put yourself out there! Expect to see me performing a lot more now!

Award from National Music Council and Music Publishers Association

A big thank you goes to the Music Publishers Association (MPA) and the National Music Council (MNC) for choosing my video as 2016’s third place winner of their copyright awareness scholariship! This scholarship is even more important to me because it is something that I am passionate about. The purpose of this scholarship was to explain the importance of copyrighting your music. I did this by highlighting, to those outside of the music industry, how illegally downloading music takes money from artists. Doing this is comparable to someone going to work each day and not receiving a paycheck for their work.

Opening Up for Flo Rida!

Even Cooler than Common Ground was opening for Flo Rida at Soaring Eagle Casino in Mt. Pleasant! Shout out to Diamond Jones again for bringing me along.The crowd there was really big, it was my biggest performance yet. At Common Ground, we performed super early in the day. Although a lot of family and friends came out to support, it was cooler to see complete strangers show love the way that they were. After we got off the stage there were people waiting for us, wanting pictures and autographs. More so for Diamond than me. But at this moment I realized that this was the life for me. I got my LIFE! 

Performing at Common Ground Music Festival

Diamond is also from Lansing, MI. Unlike me previously, he has been working his ASS off! He has been granted to great opportunities that I was lucky enough to be a part of. This summer he was able to perform at Common Ground, the annual music festival in Lansing, MI. This year he was able to perform among the likes of Icewear Vezzo, French Montana, and ASAP Rocky. Although there was a terrible storm in the middle of our set, I was featured in three songs. Luckily, I was off stage before the rain messed up my hair. It was a ton of fun! I’m hoping to book my own shows such as this next year! Thank you to Diamond for bringing me along!
