Monday, April 5, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
“Alexis Lombre has the work ethic of a veteran jazz star. “- Detroit Metro Times.
Alexis Lombre is a pianist, vocalist & bandleader who discovered early that the true essence of music is not just about what you hear but how music makes you feel. Her band has been opening acts for Chris Dave & the Drumhedz and Marquis Hill. As a side woman, she has toured internationally in South Africa with Englewood-Soweto Exchange that was powered by a MacArthur grant led by Ernest Dawkins. She also toured France as part of a Detroit-Paris exchange with Bacongo Square Boulevard, a trio comprised of French, Congolese & American musicians. Lombre has also played with internationally known musicians such as: James Carter, the AACM Great Black Music Ensemble, Makaya McCraven, Donald Harrison, Bobby Watson, Buster Williams, Wadada Leo Smith, Dee Alexander, J Moss, Cece Peniston, Rudresh Mahanthappa, and Nona Hendrix. In 2017 she released her first record ‘Southside Sounds’ which was a soulful reflection of her upbringing on Chicago’s Southside. Lombre also produced a new mini-documentary series called “THE PROCESS” where you can see the inner workings of her creative mind, it’s on her Youtube page now!
Now her newest single “Come Find Me”, produced by Grammy-Award-winning guitarist Isaiah Sharkey is set to release April 6th. Her aim is to encourage others to heal from the traumatizing world around them by finding their inner light. In the meantime, you can listen to all of her other mesmerizing tunes on her SoundCloud and on her Apple Music account @Alexis Lombre.
