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.
Watch Lex Allen’s rendition of ‘Earned It’ by The Weeknd below, as well as Siren’s ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ cover.
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.

Chicago’s little brother of the north, Milwaukee, is experiencing a wave of new emerging artists right now. As rappers WebsterX and Lex Allen lead the way, other Milwaukee artists are close behind. Collaborating for a cover of the popular Fetty Wap single, singer Siren and producer Chris Siegel (one half of kiings), have combined talents for a new re-fix of ‘Trap Queen’.
