We had the good fortune of connecting with Lex Gribbons and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lex, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I pursued an artistic career because art and music has always spoke to me ever since I was young. I find beauty and interest in the arts and I always knew I wanted that to be involved in my career. A regular 9-5 working from behind a desk just was not meant for me and I’m so lucky and blessed to be able to do what I do.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’ve been creating music for the last 4 years now and it is the best decision I have ever made. It has taught me so many lessons and allowed me to really study and dig deeper into who I am and what I’ve seen and learned. Music is one of the most vulnerable ways I can express myself in and express myself to others. It wasn’t always easy and writing can express a lot of parts of you that your not always ready for. I hope to teach woman and men to not be afraid of who you are or what you’ve been through and/or are going through. Be confident in yourself even if you can’t always feel that way

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
There’s a lot of beautiful spots around Colorado it’s why I love this state so much! Glenwood Springs is a small beautiful place to be indulged in the mountains and hiking and see the hot springs, Morrison to see red rocks and downtown to go try new foods and be in the city

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to thank my family and Lando for always believing in me and pushing me to be better and work harder each and every day. I couldn’t be here and where I am going without you.
