Alexi Halket is emerging as a very promising independent artist. Hailing from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, she has already seen great success with self-promoted singles on Spotify and Apple Music reaching over half a million streams for her first four singles, “Empty Cage”, “Consider The Moon”, "Hopeless" and most recently “Leaving You Behind”.
From the age of seven, Alexi has worked with some very talented Canadian musicians, both as teachers and mentors. Sean Kelly (Lee Aaron, Helix, Nelly Furtado) was her guitar teacher from 2005 to 2011. Jasmine Denham (solo artist, Nelly Furtado) has been a vocal teacher and mentor throughout her career. Blair Packham (The Jitters) has been a professor and personal mentor to Alexi since 2016. Producer Rob Wells (Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande) jumped at the chance to record with Alexi after listening to her perform at an open mic show with emerging Canadian artists. Alexi was not slated to perform but asked if she could have a spot at the end of the other performances. In attendance was Vito Luprano, formerly of Sony Music and responsible for executive producing Celine Dion, who made a b- line to Alexi after her performance to say “You’ve got something special, and I know special”.
"I have always been 2 things for as long as I can remember: a music fan, and a music maker. The money I make goes towards my music and performance, and to concert tickets to see my favourite and most inspirational artists. I have always been like this, and I will never change." -Alexi Halket
Alexi Halket is not new to the media spotlight. In her last weeks of high school, Alexi was sent home for wearing something a male teacher deemed inappropriate. She took this opportunity to create CROP TOP DAY, a protest against demeaning, oppressive, and sexist dress codes, and to raise awareness about double standards in dress codes in high school. Thanks in part to Alexi’s efforts, earlier this year the TDSB announced schoolboard-wide dress code changes, bringing new, gender-neutral and less constrictive regulations. Her protest was powerful enough to be mentioned in Parliament by London West MPP Peggy Sattler.
Alexi was interviewed by worldwide national and international media outlets like People, MTV and BBC and featured in teenvogue.com, People.com, MTV.com, Bustle.com, vice.com, mirror.co.uk, dailymail.co.uk, huffpost.com, glamour.com, buzzfeed.com to name a few. Alexi made television appearances on Global National, CP24, CBC News, The Social, CTV News and City TV/Breakfast Television Toronto.
Educated at Claude Watson School for the Arts and Etobicoke School of the Arts, Alexi has proven she is a gifted artist. She writes all of her songs, and can play all of the instruments.
