Lex Grey and The Urban Pioneers

Lex Grey and the Urban Pioneers are erupting from New York's music underground with their sixth album, “Heal My Soul.” A legendary live band made up of award-winning recording artists, this unique outfit fuses old-school blues with classic rock, built upon the commanding vocals of Lex Grey, who has drawn comparisons to countless distinguished singers but who, truth be told, possesses a power and passion that places her in a league of her own.
Grey has mesmerized music lovers since she came thundering onto the scene like Mae West on a motorcycle. Rising to the status of a cult rock diva, this multiple ASCAP Songwriting Award-winner delivers a repertoire that blends the tortured soul of the blues with bawdy burlesque and Brooklyn attitude. Born in the back room of a Brooklyn bar, the Urban Pioneers gained notoriety as a New York City live band, cultivating a gritty sophistication by uniting unusual instruments, traditional blues and hard-hitting classic rock. Onstage they explode with energy and passion, creating a musical and visual patchwork of texture and soundscape driven by Grey's steamy, jaw-dropping delivery.
The band draws in and embraces people of every taste and background, and is always expanding and evolving. “I don't believe you have to fit into a mold,” Grey says. “We just stay true to our instincts and our influences, and people identify with this honesty. Regardless of culture, regardless of trends, if it comes from the heart, it's both timely and timeless.”
