About The Artist
“At , Alexis Lombre has the work ethic of a veteran jazz star. “- Detroit Metro Times.
Alexis Lombre is a young jazz pianist who discovered early that the true essence of music is not just about what you hear but how music makes you feel. Her musical mission is to keep the ‘Soul’ in music alive. The 2017 release of her debut album, “Southside Sounds”, does just that, as it is a soulful reflection of her upbringing on Chicago’s Southside. This collection of her original compositions is an attempt to pay homage to the Southside’s lively artistic, cultural heritage. In addition to her debut record, she was featured on “Lifetime: Tribute to Geri Allen” by The Young Detroit Jazz Giants (2018), “Live The Spirit Residency Presents: The Young Masters” (2016), and Mikel Patrick Avery’s “Music for a 1/2 Sized Piano” (2014). She has studied with jazz luminaries which include Willie Pickens, Benny Green, Geri Allen, and Robert Hurst.
