Milwaukee’s Lex Allen celebrates today with the release of his anticipated debut album, Table 7: Sinners & Saints. After releasing a number of addictive singles over the past few years, including ‘Cream & Sugar’ and ‘Mamas Boy’, the stand-out singer from the New Aged Narcissism collective now gets to share a full LP with the world.
Table 7 fittingly stands in at seven tracks, no fillers, and showcases Allen’s amazing vocals, signature style and songwriting throughout. Whether you’re late to the party or have been listening to Lex Allen since the beginning, this LP is for you.
Another day and another night of great live music at Milwaukee’s lakefront, for Summerfest’s huge 50th Anniversary. With performances from A Day To Remember, BJ The Chicago Kid, Lex Allen, REO Speedwagon and more, fans definitely got their money’s worth last night.
Milwaukee singer Lex Allen is easily one of the most exciting artists out of Chicago’s sister to the North. With an amazing and beautiful voice, that can be best paralleled to that of John Legend, but with a complete style of his own, Allen is not only immensely talented but the bravery he shows through the sexuality in his music, while crossing genres with a historically unaccepting style of music, is without a doubt unmatched even in 2016. His raw talent mixed with his honesty makes him one our favorite artists to watch in the new year.
Allen’s new record is no exception to all the things that make him great. ‘Cream and Sugar’, which is produced by Q the Sun and assisted by a verse from the equally talented Milwaukee artist Webster X, is a catchy track that is sure to get you to sing along. With visuals directed by Cody LaPlant, the track and music video together demonstrate the vast creativity from New Age Narcissism, a Milwaukee collective with three of its members on this record alone (Allen, Webster X, Q the Sun).

Milwaukee is currently experiencing a new wave of talented musicians and artists throughout the city, one that Chicago’s little brother to the North has not seen in quite some time. Of the most talented artists emerging out of Milwaukee right now is New Age Narcissism, a collective comprised of rapper WebsterX, singers Lex Allen and Siren and more. Recently Milwaukee’s 88Nine Radio invited NAN’s Lex Allen and Siren to a local recording studio to lay down their own reinterpretations of two big records from The Weeknd. Covering Abel’s ‘Earned It’, from The Weeknd’s latest LP and the “Fifty Shades of Grey” soundtrack, Lex Allen performed a James Bond inspired rendition of the Beauty Behind The Madness track. And deciding to take a darker spin on the otherwise upbeat and poppy ‘Can’t Feel My Face’, Siren covered the song of the summer and Weeknd’s biggest single to date.

Last night, New Age Narcissism celebrated their Milwaukee Film Festival nominations of two of its talented and emerging artists, rapper WebsterX and singer Lex Allen. WebsterX received recognition over his amazing visuals (directed by Cody LaPlant & Damien Klaven) for his record‘doomsday’, while Lex received a nomination for his music video (directed by Cody LaPlant& Damien Gram), ‘This Is Our Year’ ft. Lorde Fredd33. New Age Narcissism, which consists of WebsterX, Lex Allen, Siren, Lorde Fredd33 and more, showed their fans at Hotel Foster last night why Milwaukee is experiencing a new wave of talented artists in the city right now.

Last night, Milwaukee singer Lex Allen and the New Age Narcissism collective performed a headlining set at the Brady Street Festival in Milwaukee, WI. While many festival goers were sprinkled throughout the Brady St. bars, somewhere between buzzed and drunk (since it’s what Mil-town does best), a great crowd of fans showed up for the Allen’s entertaining set. Full of costume changes, dancers and surprise performances from NAN’s Siren and Lorde Fredd33, Lex delivered for his hometown crowd.
