At the beginning of 2018, Alexis released her debut single “Blame the Whiskey” which allowed her to appear live on numerous radio stations throughout North America, and take part in events such as Canadian Music Week in Toronto, and CMA Fest in Nashville. The release of “Blame the Whiskey” also lead to Alexis taking home the award for ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’ at the 2018 Tennessee Music Awards, performing at the USO Northwest Gala, and taking the #1 position for ten consecutive weeks on ReverbNation’s provincially ranked country artists charts. 

After releasing her second single, “How Do You Sleep”, which received international airplay, Alexis is releasing her third single “Bend the Truth” which was produced by David Browning in Nashville.
