Originating from the sun-soaked shoreline of Porto, we introduce you to the gorgeous R&B tones of Lexie Palms and her debut single, the tropically tinged ‘Can It Be Me’.
Now living in London, Lexie is cultivating a beautiful pairing of worlds within her music. Proudly fusing her vibrant, modernistic city life with her homeland heritage, she creates emotive songs fuelled with colour and feeling. The Portuguese artist radiates confidence as her smooth, slick, sultry vocals caress the gentle melodies, letting the undulating synths, ebb and flow like waves.
‘Can It Be Me’ captures that glorious essence of Summertime. Full of flavour, this first taste of Lexie Palms music has left us eager and wanting more.
As well as recently collaborating on Carlos do Complexo’s latest track ‘MiSTAKES’, Lexie Palms has also featured on Ellesse’s #MyStyleMySound sessions at Metropolis Studios.
“Can It Be Me was the first track I made after taking a one-year break in song writing and producing. That was straight after I graduated from university and the stress of constantly trying to figure out what would come next in my career got the best of me. ‘Can It Be Me’ marked a shift in that mindset and unlocked a feeling of hope and desire to go further with my music. It’s about realising that when you’re hungry for more and really do it just for pure enjoyment and happiness, that’s when you start moving forward. At the same time, ‘Can It Be Me’ connects my love and longing for the ocean with my home Leça da Palmeira and Porto, which remain very present in my music. “And now I know what the water brought. The river flows and it doesn’t stop. And so, it brings out the best in me. Can it be me?”. This track makes me feel at home…” – Lexie Palms
