Hearing Lex Empress might change your life forever.
She is a world class vocalist and speaker who has amazed stages the world over with her unparalleled mastery of improvisation.
Using her kaleidoscopic array of skills, a seemingly limitless imagination and a touch of magic she effortlessly crafts melodies and words into entire songs in the moment, fielding suggestions from the audience. She does this with great profundity yet with a sense of whimsy and fun, and can do it, if required, in seven languages.
At the core of her philosophy lies the striking idea that each moment of a human life provides an
opportunity for deep transformation. She encourages her audience to embrace this concept, for a
life improvised is a life well lived.
Lex performs with virtuoso pianist Gilian Baracs, who also improvises everything he plays.
