This gig is just a little special for us here at the Club as, after some years of appearing here with the bands of some of the finest Groove/Soul singers in the UK singer/keyboardist Lex Cameron is finally headlining with his own band! Lex first came to prominence in the early 90's after touring with Roachford, most notably with the double-A side “Don’t Go”/”Free” which created something of a stir on the UK Soul scene at the time. Following several trips to the US on the back of that success Lex returned to the UK and it wasn't long before he was heavily involved in the burgeoning Soul/Pop scene, working as a singer/keyboardist with the likes of Chic, Shania Twain, Michael Bolton, Barry White and Omar. As a result of this work for the next two decades Lex became first call singer/keyboardist for a host of high profile names, including the likes of Chaka Khan, Craig David, Incognito, Amy Winehouse, Grace Jones, Spandau Ballet, Billy Ocean, Sugababes, Matt Bianco and Tinie Tempah. He also hooked back up with the iconic UK soul artist Omar, for whom he became Musical Director, vocalist/composer and keyboard player. Through Omar, Lex also worked more recently with the legendary singer/composer Leon Ware as his Musical Director, and it is a measure of the quality of Lex's original material that he was asked (by Leon) to open Leon's show by singing and performing one of his own compositions. Although a busy and well respected sideman and MD Lex is still writing and performing his own material whenever he can, and with his 4-and-a-half octave vocal range, charismatic delivery and impressive musicianship he can be relied upon to give an electric performance. Joining him tonight are some of Lex's impressive friends and colleagues, including Dave Ital (Chaka Kahn)-guitar, Wayne Nunes (Billy Ocean)-bass and Perry Melius (Billy Ocean)-drums. Highly recommended.
