Lex Wolfe is a Los Angeles freelance bassist and producer known for her “raw energy” and “highly athletic live performance” complete with two feet of swinging dreadlocks. A natural pocket player, her style ranges from tight funk grooves to tasteful pop licks and headbangin’ rock riffs. Lex started with cello lessons at age 3, adding instruments along the way—first bass, then guitar, drums, keys, and production all followed. With credits that include work with AXS TV, McDonalds, YouTube Studio, Revry, & Alert the Globe; endorsements by Ashdown Engineering, GHS Strings, Bartolini Pickups & Get’M Get’M Straps; and a BS in Neuroscience from University of Wisconsin, Lex is a rare combination.
She cut her teeth as a hired gun in some of the most notable music scenes in the country: Austin, Nashville, and LA. Wolfe toured with Warped Tour vets Sick of Sarah, fresh off the road with Heart & The Bangles and the momentum of an album with over 1.7 million downloads. Ryan Seacrest praised them as “The Next Joan Jett & The Blackhearts” on E!, and AXS TV featured them on music reality show Breaking Band with icons like Belinda Carlisle & Dave Navarro. Wolfe spent the next few years delving into Top 40s, songwriting, and country in the Nashville Broadway scene, ultimately relocating to Los Angeles where she works with many artists, including her recent production for McDonald’s televised event House of Pride. Deeply involved in the LA scene, you can catch Wolfe performing at the legendary musician’s jams on the Sunset Strip or empowering female musicians with the all-women’s collective Gritty in Pink. She regularly gigs around SoCal with tribute bands to the rock greats i.e. Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Rage Against the Machine; as well as countless original artists.
