Born as Lexis Janay Aguilar, this 24 year old, exotic beauty launched her professional music career in High Desert. And this was after she became homeless and was forced to drop out of college. This difficult experience motivated Frenchy Valens to pursue her passion and follow her dream with a “nothing to lose” attitude.
Frenchy Valens early on embraced her multicultural heritage; being Mexican, French, Spanish, and Native American. As a teenager, she began writing music, taught herself to play guitar, and drew upon wide variety of American, Latin and international artists for inspiration. She credits Mexican-American singer Selena and English singer Kate Nash as her premier musical influences.
Although she signed with Thump Records, as a pop/alternative/hip-hop artist, she continues to show off her rhythmic versatility by fusing in that “feel good” Oldie sound to her musical style. Aside from singing, and songwriting, Frenchy Valens also an accomplished rapper, actor, and model.
