SHARES THE NEW SINGLE ‘OWN ADVICE’ – LISTEN HERE
FROM HER UPCOMING DEBUT EP ‘I’VE GOT SOMETHING TO SAY’
“As an advocate for mental health awareness, body positivity, and anti-bullying, she uses her music to help inspire others and help them believe they can achieve anything they set their minds to.” – The Honey POP
A luminous voice who celebrates body positivity and self-worth, 18-year-old singer-songwriter Lex Gibbon is on a mission to show that the stereotypical pop star image is a thing of the past. Between the addictive hooks of previous singles such as ‘Dear Hater’ and ‘Tattooed On Me’ and a personality that feels as if she’s everyone’s best friend in the neighbourhood, Lex has already attracted 100,000+ followers.
Now Lex takes the next stride in her music career as she shares the new single ‘Own Advice’. It comes as she prepares to release her upcoming debut EP ‘I’ve Got Something To Say’. Listen HERE.
‘Own Advice’ wraps a message of big sisterly advice in an explosion of pure pop fun that will appeal to fans of Mimi Webb and Julia Michaels. As the title suggests, it’s a message born from Lex’s own experiences. Like so many other young people, she admits to trying to avoid her own reflection and being overwhelmed by the shiny, mega-retouched beauty perfection across social media. The alternative is to Instead look inwards to find those one-of-a-kind qualities that empower the vulnerable you to become the best you.
Lex says, “‘Own Advice’ is dedicated to my younger self and anyone who might be feeling like they are not enough. It’s to empower and guide people through any problems they are facing and realise that their world is much more than just the edited one that we all see online.”
Lex wrote ‘Own Advice’ with Ben Cavanagh and the track’s producers SAYITAGAIN.
Growing up in Hertfordshire, Lex was badly bullied growing up and battled to overcome the mental health issues that she subsequently struggled with. She fought back and became the first teen model to walk the London, Paris, New York and Los Angeles fashion weeks, while further fashion editorial and brand support has come from Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Tatler, Gymshark, Next, St Tropez, River Island and Pepe Jeans.
At the same time, Lex also wanted an outlet to offer others and the support and guidance that she desperately needed growing up. Putting those experiences into song, her early releases have provided exactly that by tackling issues such as body positivity, social media haters and heartache as well as the uplifting reminder of ‘We’ll Be OK!’ She has already won the support of BBC Introducing and has played new artist showcases such as New Music Monday at The Ned, Peachy, and Jodie Bryant’s Discover Live. She even partnered with one of her favourite artists, Anne-Marie, to highlight the release of her book ‘You Deserve Better’.
