Mickey DUPE: With a childhood rough enough to guarantee him rock star success, by the time he was out of his teenage years -- at least according to the few details he's given -- Mickey Avalon had sold pot (with his mother), been addicted to heroin and dope, worked as a graffiti artist in L.A., converted to Orthodox Judaism (his parents were both non-practicing Jews, and his paternal grandparents were survivors of Auschwitz), got married and had a daughter, prostituted himself for drug money, watched his father die, and found his sister's dead body. All of this gave ample material for his rhymes, which he started writing after his pal, the former MTV VJ Simon Rex, encouraged him to compose his own songs. Avalon, Rex (who rapped under the name Dirt Nasty), and Armen Melik (aka Andre Legacy) began recording and releasing their own material as the Dyslexic Speedreaders, an irreverent group that gave a satirical and often lascivious look into the L.A. club and drug culture. Avalon's stage presence, which mixed a kind of hyper- and often ambiguous sexuality akin to the trashy glam rockers of the '70s, gained the attention of DJ and aspiring manager Kev-E-Kev, who was soon helping Avalon hawk his self-titled CD -- wrapped in a newspaper advertising adult services -- on the streets. His music, in particular the song "Jane Fonda," thanks to its appearance in the HBO series Entourage as well its availability on his MySpace site, started gaining an audience, and in 2006 his album was reissued as the first release from MySpace Records in joint collaboration with Interscope. ~ Marisa Brown, Rovi

Lexo the Great: Santa Barbara County and the 805 are the biggest influence on Lexo The Great's sound and drive to hustle as an independent artist. Born from Latin decent, his mother Mexican and father Bolivian. His Latin culture always causes him to explore a wide variety of new sounds and experiment with different genres of music. His eclectic background and heritage proves for his great stage presence and interaction with his crowd. 2011 proved to be a progressive year for Lexo. SXSW 2011 and a So Cal Tour with Rock-Reggae powerhouse Iration definitely allowed Lexo to hit the ground running. The highlight for 2011 was definitely the release of his latest single, 'Another Day' ft. Iration which is available on iTunes. Lexo has also had the opportunity to perform along side several bands and artists such as Mickey Avalon, Iration, Seven Lions, Tomorrows Bad Seeds, The Mike Pinto Band and Pacific Dub. He released his latest EP, 'Keep It Dirty', a Dubstep project produced by Seven Lions on iTunes in August of 2011. The duo did several shows and release partys up and down the coast, catering to the true Dubstep heads and DJ's. Lexo is currently writing and recording his new album with Reggae Great and Grammy Award winning producer Native Wayne Jobson. Native Wayne has worked with and produced for legendary artists such as Bob Marley, Keith Richards, Peter Tosh, Gregory Isaacs and his most successful project, No Doubt's "Rock Steady" album which earned him 2 Grammys and sold over 3 million records. All the while, Lexo still continues to spread his positive and humble energy to all those who around him, as well as sticking to his roots and never forgetting where he comes from.
