There’s a fundamental truth that Los Angeles musician and songwriter Lexi Vega embraces on Mini Trees’ debut album Always In Motion - time keeps moving forward, for better or worse. The consequences of this perpetual motion spark this latest collection of relatable indie-pop songs that acknowledge our collective anxiety about life’s improbability.
Lexi began writing and recording her own music as Mini Trees in 2018. It was a natural evolution for Lexi, who grew up in Southern California surrounded by music - her mom sang in a Japanese pop fusion band and her dad was a touring and session drummer who was often on the road with James Taylor. She grew up taking guitar and drum lessons, always aware that music would be her path.
As a whole, Always In Motion is a snapshot of Lexi’s frame of mind while creating it. It’s about the past as much as it was about the present moment, and Lexi’s ability to look inward and ask questions extends outward to the listener as well. Mini Trees posits that there is no easy answer to these queries, but maybe that’s okay. Time moves forward - always in motion.
