Lexi Mariah – SOURPATCH

Written by on September 12, 2020

We’re loving the latest single “SOURPATCH” from new artist Lexi Mariah. A fun dance-pop single from a super talented up-and-comer. Learn more about Lexi below and hear her single playing on Channel R radio.

21-year-old American pop artist Lexi Mariah found her love for music early on in her childhood. It being simply a hobby at first, she acquired skills on the piano, ukulele, guitar, bass and took as many music classes as she could throughout her years in school.

The Connecticut based artist made the decision to turn this hobby into a career at only 14 years old, when she took her first vocal lesson and developed a passion for songwriting and performing. Confining her emotions into her music as a personal diary, this bedroom pop artist took her songs to the stage. Lexi’s music is an instant indicator of her personality, sharing distinctive lyrics that take you on a journey through her struggles of past losses and how she has learned to cope.

Her highly anticipated third single ‘SOURPATCH’ was the singer’s first release of 2020. The track follows on from Lexi’s previous singles ‘Strange’ (released April 2019) and ‘Oh Boy’ (released October 2019). The artist has managed to gain an engaged and consistently growing fan base from her catchy melodies and self-empowering lyrics.

Musically influenced by artists such as Cher Lloyd and Taylor Swift, her sound is described as vivacious, glamorous, and energetic.

In this song, I wanted to talk about two different sides of people, myself included. I feel like a lot of people sometimes struggle to find that fine line in between their ‘good and bad’ sides. Writing this song, I was thinking of growing up, finding myself and letting go of innocence. I wanted to get the message across that you don’t​ ​always have to be ‘good’ and do the things that other people consider to be the ‘right way’.
