“Guilty” – Lexxi Raine Original Song

Will this song be your #GuiltyPleasure ?

Click here to listen to my new original song, “Guilty”!

Anyone else out there have an ex who just CAN’T LET THE EFF GO?! I went to a local concert two weekends ago and ran into my ex. Now, I knew he’d be there, and I made damn sure I let him know what he missed out on. But he acted in a way I didn’t expect and goddamnit how dare he made me feel guilty when he’s the one who dumped me. Am I right?  Listen, if you wanna know all the juicy details let me know and I’ll make sure to make a vlog video explanation because I don’t think I can fit it in this description ahah. I hope you enjoy the song! I wrote it in an hour and recorded it the next day in the studio so I’m pretty happy with how it ended up coming out.

“Masterpiece” – Lexxi Raine Original Song

I went through a terrible breakup, and this song is a new beginning to make up for that end. I think I’ve finally realized that the only person you can truly depend on is yourself. So I’m going to be doing that from now on, and the best way to focus on my own happiness is writing music and listening to your feedback. 🙂

This song wasn’t meant to be creepy, but that’s kinda how it sounds.. I know. xD I’m sure we’ve all felt this way when in love at some point. I’m basically saying that I’m so in love, this person could take any part of me that makes me “me” and I would still be happy because I’d still have them. I hope you guys enjoy this song!

Be careful when you date me – you’re most likely going to get your own song. P.s. most of them aren’t about how great you were. xD

“Summer Rain” – Avidd the Band Original Song

Click here to listen to our newest song, “Summer Rain”!

This is the first song we’ve written in a while, and it’s the first one we’ve ever written together! Cody (guitar) came up with an amazing guitar hook, Rich (drummer) told the story of his mother’s lost love from high school, and I came up with the lyrics to put it together. Here’s the first performance of this song, and hopefully we can put out a professional recording soon!

“He Says, She Says” – Lexxi Raine Original

This is one of the best songs I’ve ever written – seriously. I had just broken up with my laaame ex-boyfriend and I was really jaded by the idea of love. I didn’t think it existed anymore. I didn’t think I would find it again.

I picked up my guitar and started writing about relationships – but only included the bad stuff. I put into words how girls thought about guys when dating, and tried to put myself in a guy’s shoes and think the reverse.

Girls suck. We are (generally) too emotional. We overthink every F%#@^$G text message, every movement, every sentence. We are the WORST and I’m not afraid to admit how bad I am when it comes to this. We want to find true love right away and not have to work hard for it.

But guys are (generally) too UNemotional. They’re bad at reading the signs and don’t realize how much we’re thinking about their actions. Most of them are only occupied with getting in a girl’s pants rather than commit. And because of this, girls are always trying to get revenge and hurt the guys back – which usually includes leading on too many boys at once.

Anyway, this song was meant to be a “tongue-in-cheek” way of making fun of both sexes. Because we all suck. That’s just the truth.

“Camelot” – Lexxi Raine [LIVE] @ Stamps Bar — 9/1/2017

Absolutely love to perform this song now, and it’s hard to believe this was the first time I had done it! This is supposed to be a fun song that everyone can enjoy.. even if they don’t have true love at the moment. I hope you guys enjoy it and some of your cynicism fades away. I can’t wait for “Camelot” to come out on my next EP this winter!

“Sun” Lyric Video – Original Song by Lexxi Raine

I started writing this song over a year ago and could never figure out how to finish it. It seemed like I had all these amazing parts to a song but they wouldn’t fit together. Lucky for me, inspiration struck again during a bout of decisions that left me unhappy . This song is about being stuck and not knowing how or when you’re going to get out – but when you finally see the sun, you know everything is going to be okay again. 😀

“Camelot” – Lexxi Raine Original Song

Click here to listen to my new original song, “Camelot”!

NEW SONG WHAAAA?! I broke up with my boyfriend of three years and had a summer full of careless flirting and fun. Along the way, I met a guy who made me feel something I hadn’t in a while. Nothing ever happened between us, but he rekindled the spark I had hidden deep inside for too long. I felt free. I felt alive. Most importantly, I felt excited about life and love again. I wrote this song about him, and he’ll never know it, but if I could go back in time and thank him for making me love writing music again, I would.

This song isn’t just about me and finding my own spark. I think everyone can relate to this song in some way. It seems more often than not, we aren’t happy in our own lives. We’re constantly reading books and watching movies in the hopes of escaping from our dreary lives and entering the make-believe world of pretty actors whose problems are fixed at the end of two hours by a very predictable plot. “Camelot” starts off with this mindset, but soon turns into thoughts of love, happiness, and cotton candy clouds where unicorns can ride on the rainbows that sit atop. This song makes me feel good. It makes me happy to be alive and hopeful that the fairy tale kind of love does exist somewhere. I hope it makes you happy, too. Sing loud and proud! Maybe you’ll find your Camelot someday. Or maybe your Rapunzel. OR MAYBE YOU DON’T NEED ANYONE BUT YOUR AWESOME SELF TO BE HAPPY AND THAT’S THE DREAM. :}

BMHOF Songwriting Contest! I Won 2nd Place!!!

Watch me play the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame Songwriting Contest!

Whew! This was QUITE an experience! The first time I sent my song “Valediction” in, I only got runner up. In 2017, I was one of the six finalists out of hundreds of applicants! I played “Hey, I Say” and “Fire and Ice”. The latter was the song that got chosen for the contest. I was upset not winning, but it was an amazing show full of great talent! Plus, the guy who won definitely deserved it! The prize was a 30 minute concert at a later date and a professional recording of the selected song, but I play out all the time and Johnny from The Music Lab makes my songs sound amazing!!!
