The 6 1 5 Featuring Alexes Hardt
Nashville hasn’t heard an artist quite like Alexes Hardt. The twenty-six year old
Florida native has written bits and pieces of lyrics ever since she was a child. Drawing
influences from the direction of modern hits, her production favors the trap drums that
have populated rap music but the electronic sounds that have given posters edge to
their latest works. Alexes balances these elements with lighter undertones to create
atmospheric indie pop that feels like Banks or Fletcher, but with a bite to it like a Travis
Scott record. With this unique take on the production, this allows Alexes to flourish with
her vocals; a smooth mezzo-soprano ranges that finds the sweet spot to carry the
higher and lower notes in her records. Now based in the epicenter of country music, she
offers the south a genre of music often replicated but hardly perfected in the best
possible way with authentic storytelling that makes you want to get up and dance one
second before wanting to key your ex’s car the next. Alexes Hardt is ready to show the
world what she has been holding back for oh so long!

Say you had a completely free day in Nashville—no work allowed. What would you be doing?
I love spending my off days outside. There are so many amazing parks here in Nashville. I would bring a book and some snacks, too. Off days are also gym days, too. I recently got back into lifting weights.
