About Lexie Mountain Boys

“The lexie mountain boys lived a long secluded life until one day trekking down into the foothills and scaring everyone away.”

Baltimore, 2005. When Mikey from Warmer Milks first met Lexie Mountain, he said with a laugh, “You should have a band and call it The Lexie Mountain Boys!” So she asked her closest friends to come over and they started making tapes of themselves laughing and singing and talking. First came Amy Waller and Katherine Hill, then Lexie’s roommate Sam “Cotton” Garner joined in. At this point, Sam and Amy and Lexie recorded “Clean The House Properly,” which appeared on Lexie’s solo record (confusingly called “Boys”). Though it seems as if they were there all along (even before the band), at some point Roby Newton and Amy Harmon came over to sing and joke. Lexie Mountain Boys birthed itself onto a bill, dusted the blood off and never looked back. Well, rarely.
