Q&A: LEX the Lexicon Artist

How did you come up with the name of the band? I started as just LEX, but I needed to be Google searchable. So I took some time to come up with a pun. “Lexicon Artist” is a play on the words “Lexicon” and “Con Artist” – since “Lexicon” means “vocabulary”, it’s a fancy way… Keep Reading

Q&A: Max Park

How’d you guys first get together to play music? We’d both been musicians in the bay area music scene for years. We played together on a bunch of recording sessions over those years.
