Lexie Jay and Jon Fedorsen, better known as the electronic duo FEATURETTE, challenge the desire to fit in, and have worked hard to create a musical world of their own, focusing ever harder on standing out.
The duo started their musical relationship years ago at a summer camp, gearing up for a faculty performance night. Jon approached Lexie looking for help with filling out the guitar aspect of his performance. After all he was a drummer, and wanted to educate the campers about the importance of trying instruments outside your comfort zone when creating music. “After performing together that first time,” says Lexie “we were hooked.” Both band members had been writing music independently for years. Jon mostly on Logic on his computer, and Lexie from her guitar or keyboard. “She had a little black moleskin notebook she’d been filling out since high school, with all kinds of poetry and song lyrics” says Jon “and actually the first song we ever recorded together, ‘Memorize’, was in that songbook, word for word.” “I think the growing pains of evolving from a folk duo with guitars to a dark and twisty electronic-pop duo was inevitable. Neither of us are guitar players first, so it made sense for us to naturally transition to our keyboard instruments” says Lexie. “That’s when things really started to flow for us. With finding our instruments, came finding our voice.” And found it they did.
