After a year of writing and releasing her debut EP, Empire of One, Lexi Berg is here to showcase her new material. Lexi’s new songs are raw honest pieces written on the piano and arranged with dark swelling atmospheric guitars. Expect swelling and powerful vocals that transport the audience and songs that hit straight to the heart.
Lexi Berg is a Swedish and American singer-songwriter based in London. A classically trained pianist and singer, Lexi began to write songs on her own and in 2019 was approached by the lead singer of The Horrors, Faris Badwan. Badwan was intrigued by her classic songwriting and produced three songs for Lexi under the name, Berg. Lexi released her first single, What If, independently and was immediately recognised by Spotify and Apple playlists. What If, was named top 100 songs by Apple Music and subsequently was placed on the soundtrack for the Oscar-nominated movie Pieces of A Woman. Lexi has also secured syncs on Love Island, MTV Teen Moms, and other small independent productions.
Lexi Berg has since then released a full EP, Empire of One, produced by Jimmy Hogarth (Sia, Duffy, James Blunt) and is now working on her second EP, produced by Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, Florence & The Machine). Lexi has performed at venues and festivals around the UK including Ronnie Scotts, Old St Pancras Church, Wilderness, and Isle of Wight Festival. She recently supported the bands Deacon Blue and Howling Bells on their UK tours.

Growing up in London, Henry Grace started writing his first songs when he was 12 years old. Songwriting became an outlet for him when he was hospitalized with depression at 18 and he spent 3 years wrestling with mental illness before moving to America at 21 in search of a new life.
Living in Venice, California, he overcame his struggles and started working as a musician while studying literature at college, building a small but loyal following as he began to share his story and advocate for mental health awareness. After touring relentlessly in 2019, he started piecing together the makings of a record. On a trip to Saginaw MI, to visit Mule luthier Matt Eich, he was handed a new resonator guitar to help with the album; its gritty, worn-in sound becoming the bedrock of the songs he would spend the next few months writing.
‘Alive In America’ was recorded live over 5 days at Rockfield Studios in February 2021 and officially released on January 14, 2022. Engineered by Josh Tyrell (Van Morrison) and mixed by Oliver McKiernan (Echobelly), ‘Alive In America’ is the sound of one voice cutting through the void. It is rough around the edges, like the landscape Grace is drawing from, and paints a stark and vivid depiction of the country he called home and ultimately credits with saving his life.
